Nando’s to take up roost in Dooradoyle

DOORADOYLE is set to welcome a new fast food outlet this summer.

Food chain Nando’s have confirmed to the Limerick Post that their planned outlet at the Crescent Shopping Centre will open later in the summer.

Plans for the new restaurant were first revealed in 2019, with an expected opening date of 2020, but the Covid-19 pandemic put these plans on hold.

The South African chain, best known for its Portuguese peri-peri style chicken, issued a statement to the Limerick Post saying that they are excited to open an outlet in the city.

“We’re excited to be bringing our famous peri-peri flavour to Limerick later this summer,” a Nando’s representative said.

The company would not be drawn on an exact date for the opening, however the representative said that more details would be available in “the coming months”.

Hiring for the roles in the Dooradoyle restaurant however has commenced, with the company currently recruiting for an assistant manager and an assistant general manager.

Nando’s currently have 12 outlets in Ireland, with just two of these in Munster – Cork’s Mahon Point and Academy Street.

Nando’s were founded in Johannesburg in 1987 by Fernando Duarte and Robert Brozin and currently have over 1,200 outlets in 30 countries worldwide.
