Nando's, a South African-based chain of fast-casual chicken restaurants founded in Johannesburg in 1987, operates approximately 1,200 outlets around the world. Each site is unique, as the founders' focus on local style, international design and African artistry. As its corporate credo states: "Life's too short for bland." At the company's centre lies its own collision of cultures – an Afro-Portuguese mash-up best represented by its signature dish of butterfly-cut, flame-grilled chicken immersed in spicy PERi-PERi sauce. We really enjoy the unique flavours of Nando's chicken.
Nando's restaurants recently invited Toronto’s DesignAgency to develop several of its Canadian showcase locations such as the one that opened recently in downtown on Queen Street West, and the other opening this Fall on Danforth Avenue, as well as two Calgary locations that will open later this year. DesignAgency was asked by the company to incorporate authentic modern African style and culture in each location to enliven the decor and have a selections of contemporary Southern African art collection.
