Nando's Peri-PeriGet Your Chicks Off Route 66
Gainesville, VA – December 4, 2013 – Nando’s Peri-Peri, the Afro-Portuguese restaurant known worldwide for its flame-grilled chicken, is hatching its newest location today in Gainesville. With its fiery Peri-Peri chicken, Nando’s is blazing a trail at the Promenade at Virginia Gateway, the new upscale dining and shopping town center in Prince William County.

“We are excited to fire up our grills at the Promenade and introduce Gainesville to our fresh Peri-Peri flavors,” said Burton Heiss, CEO ofNando’s Peri-Peri USA. “We look forward to sharing the Nando’s experience with a whole new community.”

The newest restaurant in our flock is among the first of dozens of new restaurants and shops opening at the Promenade, located near the intersection of Route 29 and Route 66.

Like all Nando’s, the restaurant features sleek architecture and original South African artwork in a casual, friendly atmosphere. The Gainesville location houses paintings by renowned African artists including Lerato Motau, who learned to sketch and paint as a child growing up in the townships of Soweto, South Africa.

“By designing restaurants that are one-of-a-kind to each neighborhood, we are able to provide our fans with a truly unique experience,” Heiss said.
