About Nando's

The first Nando’s restaurant opened its doors in 1987 in Johannesburg, South Africa. Since then, the Nando’s flame has spread to 23 countries on five continents. From the very beginning, the founders wanted Nando’s to be more than chicken and profit. So much so that in the early days, our slogan was “have fun and then make money” but always in the right way, giving people opportunities and making a positive impact on their lives. The rest is history! Today, you can find Nando’s restaurants and our addictive grocery range all around the world.

Our Values

Five words we live by, our values have guided Nando's from humble beginnings to where we are today. They come to life when we express them in our daily actions by being generous, building relationships, having fun, taking responsibility and getting things done.


We know our roots and stay humble. We are the best we can be.


We go the extra mile. We display excellence in everything we do.


We have a pioneering spirit and face up to challenges.


We are truthful, reliable and always keep our word. We do the right thing.


We bring out the best in one another and it’s always ‘us,’ not ‘me.’

Employee Testimonials

I've been with Nando's for three years now. I have had monumental personal and professional growth during this time. Nando's has seen my potential and encouraged me to develop by trusting me with increased responsibility. A "typical day" is never typical. There is always something challenging happening, yet every day is filled with new learning opportunities.

  • Everyone is Welcome

    Everyone is Welcome

    Nando’s has always been committed to equality, justice, and the overall improvement of Nandocas’ livelihoods across the world. We created impact hiring partnerships with Project Generation and DC Central Kitchen to hire young people from underrepresented communities and provide them access to work where they would traditionally have been excluded. Our restaurant teams have worked to create a sense of belonging through our hiring and onboarding practices so everyone can feel welcomed.
