Nando’s Fujairah Launch
Fujairah City Centre Mall prepares to welcome Nando’s first restaurant on UAE’s east coast
16 August 2018, Dubai: Nando’s, the world-famous South African-Portuguese restaurant chain known for its great service and spicy flame-grilled PERi-PERi chicken is set to open its newest UAE ‘casa’ at Fujairah City Centre Mall.
Due to open to diners on 17thAugust, the newest branch of Nando’s will be the company’s first restaurant in the eastern-most emirate.
The largest mall on the UAE’s east coast, Fujairah City Centre is a hugely popular destination for families and the perfect location for the latest Nando’s ‘casa’.
The new restaurant represents a move by Nando’s into a currently under-served market within the UAE, with only a relatively small number of international restaurant chains operating in Fujairah as compared to neighbouring emirates.
Customers are expected to travel from across Fujairah to experience Nando’s range of premium dishes.
“We’re absolutely delighted to be opening our first ‘casa’ in Fujairah and we look forward to bringing our PERi-PERi flavours and Nando’s delicious family dining experience to our new customers in Fujairah,” said Mr Suhail Gidwani, CEO of Nando’s UAE.
The new restaurant will be decorated in Nando’s unique mix of earthy textures and bright colours that perfectly reflect the international company’s sunny South African-Portuguese heritage.
As well as great food, a welcoming atmosphere and friendly staff, Nando’s customers can also view a host of original works of art by leading South African artists.
The largest collector of contemporary South African art in the world, Nando’s proudly displays important and eye-catching works at each of its restaurants as a colourful reminder of its roots.
The first Nando’s restaurant opened its doors in 1987 in Johannesburg, South Africa. Since then, the Nando’s flame has spread to 1,200 restaurants in 23 countries on five continents. Nando’s is known worldwide for its succulent PERi-PERi chicken, marinated for 24 hours, flame-grilled to perfection, and basted to the customer’s preferred flavor and spice. It’s equally renowned for its spicy PERi-PERi, the Bird’s Eye chili pepper that indigenous Africans introduced to the Portuguese centuries ago.
