Here is an overview on Nandos Restaurant provided by Wikipedia.
Nando’s is a casual dining restaurant group originating from South Africa with a Portuguese/Mozambican theme. Founded in 1987, Nando’s operates in 30 countries on 5 continents. Nando’s specializes in chicken dishes with either lemon and herb, medium, hot or extra hot Peri-Peri marinades (properly known as Galinha à Africana). In some countries, Nando’s has other flavor options like mango and lime, lemon and herb, or Mediterranean.
The restaurant began in 1987 when Robert Brozin and Fernando Duarte bought a restaurant called Chickenland in Rosettenville, southern Johannesburg. They renamed the restaurant Nando’s after Duarte. The restaurant incorporated influences from former Portuguese colonists from Mozambique, many of whom had settled on the south-eastern side of Johannesburg, after their homeland’s independence in 1975.
Nando’s specializes in flame-grilled Peri-Peri chicken. The chicken is served in quarters, halves and wholes. Nando’s also serves burgers, pitas, salads, wings and wraps. In some countries, Nando’s sells chicken livers, Espetada (a large stand with a skewer of chicken breast and grilled peppers) and the Cataplana (a chicken and rice dish served in a traditional Portuguese copper dish). In most countries, Nando’s serves bottomless soft-drinks.
Peri-Peri is the Swahili word for the African Bird’s Eye chilli, a chilli indigenous to Africa. Peri-Peri is also known by the names Piri-Piri or Peli-Peli in certain parts of Africa. Nando’s products are basted in one of four Peri-Peri flavours. Nando’s has published a book about Peri-Peri called Pain and Pleasure – Peri-Peri the contrasts and contradictions of the African Bird’s Eye Chilli.
Nando’s manufactures a range of sauces which are sold in Nando’s restaurants and in supermarkets. They include Peri-Peri sauces, marinades, cooking sauces and a Peri-Peri Essence.
In 2010, Advertising Age magazine named Nando’s as one of the world’s top 30 hottest marketing brands(pun intended). Other brands included in the list included Facebook, Ikea and BMW.
