FRANCHISING: Nando's Wants More Stores In Cape Town
Recent Western Cape Business News
NANDO’s, the legendary and authentic Portuguese flame grilled chicken restaurant was born in 1987, south of Johannesburg.
Since then the peri-peri fever has spread fast from the unassuming suburb of Rosettenville, to the world.
With over 800 restaurants internationally and close on 300 in South Africa the peri-peri experience has become a tantalizing addiction worldwide. Most all of these operations are franchisees and Nando’s is now looking to hatch more stores in Cape Town.
It considers a franchisee to be a unique person.
As a franchisee you will be running your own business, yet within the parameters of the Nando’s brand and business format.
“You will not only have to have the required financial resources and track record, but you will also have to possess the attributes of a business owner to successfully fulfil your role as a Nando’s franchisee. A franchisee with managerial experience and/or having been self employed is ideal; The franchisee needs to be an energetic self-starter with a professional approach to business,” Nando’s believe.
In support the company provides intensive training for its franchisees, which encompasses practical on the job training as well as theoretical training.
New franchisees should prepare themselves for an uncompromising three months training and make adequate provision, both social and financial, for this period.
Potential new sites would be evaluated by Nando’s property team, and only upon full and final approval of the site in terms of this process is a sanction granted to pursue the establishment of a Nando’s restaurant at that location.
Here it is important to stress that, while every effort is made to ensure that the site will be right to house a viable operation, naturally no guarantees or warranties can be given by Nando’s in that regard.
By taking a proactive and informed approach to site selection and network growth Nando’s aim to increase and improve its market coverage.
