International restaurant chain, Nando's, opens in Ludhiana.

Chandigarh, April 27 -- Nando's, the home of legendary Portugese flame-grilled Peri-Peri chicken opens at Ludhiana.

With over 980 restaurants across 5 continents around the world, Nando's originated in South Africa with a Portuguese/Mozambican theme in 1987, the brainchild of two South African entrepreneurs, Robert Brozin and Fernando Duarte.

Nando's entered India in 2010 with its first restaurant in Chandigarh followed by another one in Bangalore. "This is the third restaurant in India and second in this region" said Vikrant Chowgule, managing director of Indage Group, the master franchisees for India. "One more restaurant is scheduled to be opened in Bangalore, and in the current year, Nando's would have presence in Chennai and New Delhi too," he informed.

Manmohan Singh Chadha, Partner Nando's India said that looking at the tremendous response and demand from Punjabis, Nando's shall be in Jalandhar in the current financial year.

Nando's is an interesting blend between a casual dining restaurant as well as quick service restaurant that is known for its quality and healthy food. The core offering at the restaurant is the delicious 'flame-grilled Peri-Peri chicken', besides selection of salads, appetizers, burgers, and wraps, with equally rich options for the vegetarians.

Brad Byrne, Training & Development Manager of Nando's said "Punjabis are known world over for their love for good food and we are very excited to bring this unique flavor to the heart of Punjab in Ludhiana."Known for its deliciously spicy and fiery dishes, the "Peri - Peri" remains a closely guarded secret and is a priceless work of the culinary art! It's the spicy ingredient which creates the base for the Nando's peri-peri chicken which is carefully prepared and flame grilled to perfection, Brad added.

Peri Peri is the core differentiator and is the unique selling proposition (USP) of Nando's and is the heart and soul of the brand, says the master chef from South Africa, Chumky, who is in Ludhiana to oversee the perfect delivery of international cuisines. Peri-Peri recipes have always been a source of family pride and have been passed down from generation to generation, he said. The Nando's Peri-Peri sauces are just such a recipe - a combination of old-world mystery and fiercely guarded secrets. The secret Nando's recipes reveal themselves in the legendary Nando's Peri-Peri sauce range, Nando's cooking sauces and marinades, and of course, the world-famous chicken. One can chose the intensity flavor of chicken dressing from amongst Extra Peri-Peri Hot, Hot Peri-Peri, Mild Peri-Peri, or Lemon & Herb.
