Fiesta president and chief executive officer Richard Stockinger said, "We are addressing our challenges and disappointing financial performance through a strategic Renewal Plan that we believe will create long-term value for our shareholders. We have already taken action by recently closing 30 Pollo Tropical restaurants in emerging markets that contributed material pre-tax operating losses in 2016 and the first quarter of 2017, while we focus on our core markets at both brands. With ignited passion, our entire team is galvanized and focused on re-establishing Fiesta as a best-in-class restaurant operator within our sector. Our goal is to be recognized for providing the best quality and value to our loyal guests, and our revitalization efforts have begun in earnest."
