Nando’s Menu, Prices and Locations

The restaurant was founded in 1987 in the Johannesburg suburb Rosettenville when Portuguese-born audio engineer Fernando Duarte took his entrepreneur friend Robert Brozin to a Portuguese takeaway called Chickenland for a meal. After trying the chicken, cooked in piri piri, a Portuguese chilli sauce made from a pepper with the same name found in Mozambique, they bought the restaurant for about 80,000 rand (equivalent of about £25,000 at the time). They renamed the restaurant Nando’s after Fernando’s first born son. After two years, the restaurant had four outlets: three in Johannesburg and one in Portugal. By 2013, around 1,000 Nando’s branches were in 35 countries.

In 2010, Advertising Age magazine named Nando’s as one of the world’s top 30 hottest marketing brands. As of July 2014, the Nando’s restaurant group is ultimately owned by South African businessman Dick Enthoven and his family. Enthoven’s son, Robby Enthoven, was responsible for expanding the Nando’s chain in the United Kingdom.
