Nando’s at The Fort has now been serving its delicious Peri-Peri chicken to diners for just over 5 years. To commemorate this hugely popular restaurant we thought we’d delve into it’s history and share the latest news with you!
Nando’s was founded when two great friends Robert Brozin and Fernando Duarte visited the mining town of Rosettenville in South Africa. They went to eat at a restaurant called Chickenland and fell in love with Peri-Peri flame grilled chicken; they bought the restaurant and changed the name to Nandos.
In 1992 they opened their first restaurant in the UK, in Ealing, London, which was very well received! There are now over 1000 Nando’s restaurants all around the world with more than a quarter of these being in the UK.
