UK-wide chains like Nando’s are presenting a variety of enticing offers ranging from complimentary beverages, side dishes, and main meals to price reductions on the total bill.
These deals are set to captivate customers and enhance their dining experience.
GCSE Offers Extend to August 24
The majority of these enticing offers are planned to be available on GCSE results day, which falls on August 24.
In the United Kingdom, GCSEs, typically taken by students around the ages of 15 or 16, signify a crucial stage after completing two years of secondary education.
Covering a diverse range of subjects, GCSEs are considered the foundational level of secondary education.
A-levels: Advanced Stage of Education
Contrasting with GCSEs, A-levels are more akin to South Africa’s matric exams, taken by students generally aged 17 or 18.
These exams follow the completion of GCSEs and serve as an advanced stage of secondary education.
Often a prerequisite for university admission, A-levels hold great significance in academic pathways.
Claiming Rewards at Nando’s
For students aiming to seize free starters or quarter chickens, the process is straightforward – they merely need to present their results at Nando’s restaurants.
This promotion is applicable for in-restaurant dining and walk-in collection, provided the minimum order amounts to £7 (approximately R170).
Possibility of Similar Deals in South Africa
An intriguing question arises: will Nando’s in South Africa extend similar offers to matriculants in the country where this renowned fast-food chain originated? The answer remains to be seen.
A Glimpse into Nando’s UK History
Nando’s, initiated by Robert Brozin and Fernando Duarte in South Africa, has a captivating history.
Fernando, hailing from Porto, Portugal, and his family’s migration to South Africa, played a pivotal role.
The brand’s origins trace back to a chicken restaurant named Chickenland in Rosettenville, Johannesburg, where Brozin was introduced to flame-grilled chicken that left an indelible impression.
This encounter led to the proposal of purchasing the restaurant, which was subsequently named after Fernando and his son, Nando.
Nando’s UK Expansion and Success
Nando’s encountered challenges in various countries during its initial phases, particularly in the UK.
The franchise rights were acquired by the Enthoven family in 1992, leading to the opening of the first UK restaurant in Ealing, West London.
The revolutionary concept of ordering at the till, then sitting down and awaiting food, devised by Robby Enthoven (the current Managing Director of UK Nando’s), garnered immense public approval.
This innovative approach marked a turning point for the restaurant chain, which has since achieved unprecedented success.
The UK now proudly boasts 392 Nando’s restaurants, surpassing any other nation. South Africa ranks second with 259 establishments.Share on Facebook «||» Share on Twitter «||» Share on Reddit «||» Share on LinkedIn
