When we open a new restaurant, we donate food from our team trainings to local hospitals, first responders and local groups.

Unexpected Times of Need

When our local communities face unfortunate events such hurricanes, fires, tornados or other disasters, Portillo's team members step up and offer support by volunteering time and donating Portillo's food to impacted families going through these emotional situations that are beyond their control.
