Sergio's Restaurants Opens New Location in Pembroke Pines

July 13, 2015

(PEMBROKE PINES, FL) - Sergio's Restaurants, the first national Cuban restaurant franchise, today celebrated the grand opening of its newest location. The restaurant's award-winning cuisine and healthy menu options will now be available in Pembroke Pines – one of fastest-growing cities in the United States.

A growing Sergio's customer base in Broward County is looking forward to the convenient location at 13620 Pines Boulevard - the former Macaroni Grill.

"The opening of Sergio's Pembroke Pines is a great step in the expansion of the Sergio's franchise," Sergio's Restaurants CEO Carlos Gazitua said. "We earned many Broward customers since the 2014 opening of our Ft. Lauderdale Airport location and it made sense to build on that success."

Sergio's sets itself apart from other Latin restaurants in the region by having their own butchers to consistently ensure fresh, top quality products. The new location also features a Prohibition-era Cuban Bar theme. Sergio's has been posting sneak peak photos via Instagram (@SergiosCuban) of new specialty drinks like a gin martini with cream cheese and guava stuffed olives.

The Sergio's Pembroke Pines menu features items like tapas on wood board and customer favorites like Vaca Frita with Beef ($14.50) or Chicken ($13.50), La Flaca Turkey Picadillo ($10.99) with cauliflower rice and avocados, and Sergio's famous Cuban Sandwich – awarded "Best in South Florida" for 2015.

Each of Sergio's eight locations is unique. The new 7,000 square foot restaurant has been beautifully renovated with new architectural designs. It has accent antiques, wood and iron throughout and, to stay true to the brand, Spanglish graffiti-styled walls and bold blue colors frame the space. This fusion gives the location a rustic yet modern look.

The official "ribbon cutting" takes place Monday at 12:30 pm; the restaurant opens to the public at 6:00 pm. The American Heart Association (AHA) team will also have a station set up Monday promoting heart health awareness through their partnership with Sergio's Restaurants. Opening night proceeds from Sergio's popular La Flaca menu – unique, fresh and healthy Latin dishes - will be donated to AHA.
