Nando’s Peri-Peri, the fast growing international chicken restaurant, will open its first Baltimore location at 421 West Baltimore Street on March 20th, 2013. The Afro-Portuguese restaurant announced its expansion to Baltimore last December, when Nando’s Peri-Peri opened in Gambrills, MD and signed two additional leases in the Greater Baltimore Area. Along with new locations hatching in Baltimore, MD, Nando’s Peri-Peri plans to keep its Washington, DC flame burning with a new restaurant opening this summer at The Yards.
Mock services will take place two days prior to the Baltimore grand opening, during which, complimentary meals will be offered to select Baltimore residents and office workers, who received an invitation and a confirmed reservation time. Nando’s Peri-Peri USA will post the mock service invitation on its Facebook Page in the coming week. Fans are encouraged to check Facebook daily in order to secure their advance reservations.
Conveniently located near University of Maryland, Baltimore, and just around the corner from the historic Hippodrome Theatre, this new location will attract a diverse range of customers. The quality of food, service, and price will appeal to students and office workers, as well as groups of friends and families looking for new happy hour drink specials or pre-theatre dining options.
CEO of Nando’s Peri-Peri USA, Burton Heiss credits loyal customers as the reason for selecting Baltimore as the next market in the United States.
“We’ve been receiving high volumes of requests from our customers to open a Baltimore location, and downtown Baltimore is a young, fun market that we believe will quickly embrace the Nando’s brand and food.”
The first Nando’s restaurant opened its doors in 1987 in Johannesburg, South Africa. Since then, the Nando’s flame has spread to 27 countries and five continents. Nando’s is known worldwide for its succulent Peri-Peri chicken, marinated for 24 hours, flame-grilled to perfection, and basted to the customer’s preferred flavor and spice. Nando’s Peri-Peri made its USA debut in 2008 with the opening of its first location on 7th Street in Washington, DC’s Chinatown. Nando’s Peri-Peri has since opened nine additional restaurants in the Washington, DC Metropolitan Area, including DuPont Circle, Silver Spring, Annapolis, Bethesda, Gaithersburg, National Harbor, Pentagon Row, Waugh Chapel, and Old Town, Alexandria.
