Nando’s has more than 21 000 pieces of South African art in its collection, which is displayed on the walls of over 12 000 restaurants in more than 24 countries across the world.

The Ottery restaurant was one of many spaces designed by TinLab, an interior architectural company specialising in restaurant design.

Kirsten Niehaus, marketing manager overseeing internal brand experience for Nando’s South Africa, said every Nando’s restaurant is unique in its design and has original South African art and designer furniture.

“Nando’s is a proudly South African business with people at the centre of everything we do. We live our purpose of changing lives through our commitment to nurture and showcase southern African creative talent in a meaningful way.

“Nando’s believes in the ‘empowerment’ philosophy, which focuses on nurturing southern African creative talent. We are fired-up to be a propeller for emerging artists, designers and musicians to take the next step to further their careers,” she said.

Itumeleng Mogotsi, general manager of the Cape region for Nando’s South Africa, said chicken was a high-selling product and fell in line with the emerging health food trend.
