Nando’s, the renowned restaurant chain famed for its Peri-Peri flavored delights, is bringing its fiery taste to Katy, Texas to be located at 23501 Cinco Ranch Blvd, according to Community Impact.
The new Nando’s will join the community’s vibrant food landscape, offering a menu infused with the unique taste of South African Peri-Peri spice. This new addition comes hot on the heels of the brand’s inaugural Texas foray at the Post Oak Plaza shopping center in August 2023.
The Katy branch will take residence next to the health-centric Jamba Juice, providing an exciting contrast of flavors and dining experiences in the area. Nando’s is celebrated for its high-quality, sustainably-sourced chicken that’s marinated for a full day in African bird’s eye chili-based Peri-Peri sauce before being flame-grilled to order. The restaurant’s dedication to culinary craftsmanship has earned it a devoted following worldwide.
Nando’s expansion into Katy reflects not just the growth of the restaurant chain, but also the area’s development as a residential and commercial hub. The location in LaCenterra at Cinco Ranch, a mixed-use development that combines shopping, dining, and residential units, is strategic. It places Nando’s in the middle of a bustling community center that regularly attracts both locals and visitors looking for quality dining options.
In addition to its delectable menu, Nando’s brings a unique cultural ambiance to its restaurants, drawing inspiration from South African art and music. This cultural import adds a layer of experience to dining, immersing customers in the essence of Nando’s heritage while they enjoy their meal.
The brand’s commitment to community engagement and customer service is expected to be a cornerstone of the new location’s operations, promising a warm welcome to families, food enthusiasts, and curious diners alike. With the promise of an authentic Peri-Peri experience, Nando’s anticipates becoming an integral part of Katy’s culinary community, contributing to the local economy and dining scene.
