Nando’s PERi-PERi chicken is celebrating the grand opening of the new Nando’s restaurant on Michigan Avenue in Chicago on Tuesday, Sept 5th. Grammy-winning performer Chance The Rapper will be making an appearance at 6pm that evening. He will be manning the grills, delivering Nando’s PERi-PERi grilled chicken to guests. He will be speaking about about the importance of supporting Chicago public schools and nurturing local talent and his non-profit, SocialWorks. Nando’s will be donating all proceeds from sales at their new location from Tuesday, Sept 5th to Thursday, Sept 7th to SocialWorks.
Nando’s new Michigan Avenue location marks the 12th Nando’s to open in and around Chicago over the past two years. Every Nando’s is unique and painstakingly designed, with earthy textures and bright colors that reflect Nando’s sunny African-Portuguese heritage. With thousands of pieces of original works of art that are a constant reminder of where the restaurant came from, Nando’s has become the largest collector of South African contemporary art in the world. Vibrant South African designs provide a unifying theme at the new Michigan Avenue restaurant, as well. The new Nando’s will open officially on Monday Sept 4th. The Grand Opening will be Tuesday, September 5th. Regular hours are 11am to 10pm.
