Celebrating 35 years of firing it up!


As we head into Spring, the warmer weather inspires renewed optimism. Many South Africans look forward to being outdoors, enjoying good food, and refreshing drinks. With that in mind, Nando’s is tackling the pandemic of quarter to empty wallets and stomachs, with the quarter chicken and any single side for only R53, way less than what it cost pre-2020, just nje! Not only is Nando’s making sure that you’re not left behind this Spring, but we guarantee you will be living the soft life with the filling and flavourful Err’Day meals.

During the Spring period, many will start to feel the year end fatigue start to set in. According to Skills Academy, some symptoms to look out for include; lack of concentration, forgetfulness and insomnia. Nando’s has you covered, even when this is the “quarter to empty” that you are experiencing. We don’t want you fumbling the bag or missing that submission deadline so grab our birthday promotion and fill up so you can keep up. Get a quarter chicken, single side PLUS a limited edition 400ml Coke can for only R59, valid for the month of September 2022 only. T’s&Cs apply.

Locally and around the world, more and more people are becoming flexitarian. This food trend has prompted the launch of a new menu offering from Nando’s that will have Mzansi feeling spoilt for choice. Introducing The Great Pretender™ -your fave, and plant-based range. The Great Pretender™ is for guests who prefer to eat less meat and are keen to try new things. The plant-based range is chicken free and still offers the same flavourful taste you love. It is made from pea protein, vital wheat gluten, beans and chickpeas. Guests can have it in their Bowls, Salads, Pitas, Wraps, Hotpots – even with Fries, or Veg and Spicy Rice. Open up the relationship with The Great Pretender™ at Nando’s or stick to your main flame grilled PERi-PERi chicken or veggie patty options. We just want to see you happy.

This Spring we continue making the table bigger as we welcome new Rubro Iced Tea, exclusive to Nando’s restaurants. Rubro is a deliciously thirst quenching and refreshing Iced Tea made from Rooibos grown exclusively in Mzansi. It’s available in three fruity flavours; peach, lemon and berry. Nando’s is excited to launch Rubro Iced Tea and has decided to join the boMoreki squad this spring. Buy any of our Burgers, Pitas or Wraps (including the new plant-based alternative) and get a free Rubro Iced Tea on us, while stocks last.

“As we turn 35 this September, we want to celebrate with our customers and cherish the moments we have shared with them over the years. We’ve been known as a quirky, fearless and forward- thinking brand. Our adverts have had tongues wagging and we have walked the journey to democracy with South Africans. 35 years later, we are still firing it up, providing guests with the tastiest PERi-PERi chicken, while we continue to make them laugh. South Africa celebrates Heritage Day which coincides with our birthday month. As a brand who is passionate about people and considers all South Africans as family, we are thrilled to mark our birthday with meal offerings that are specially crafted with their needs in mind.” says – Nontobeko Sibiya, Marketing Manager: Communications at Nando’s South Africa.

With the weather getting warmer, and festive around the corner now it’s time to start enjoying spring without feeling like you have to constantly check that Dezemba budget. At Nando’s you get to enjoy your faves without breaking the bank. Like Nomfundo Moh said in her hit single “Soft Life“, “ningasivaleli ngaphandle”, so we look forward to welcoming you into our restaurants.
