Peri-peri chicken restaurant Nando’s will open certain branches for delivery from 4 May after all.

Fast food deliveries are permitted in South Africa under Alert Level 4. Consumers will, however, not be allowed to visit the fast-food outlets to collect their own takeaways, and food deliveries will only be permitted between 09:00 and 19:00 daily. 

Nando’s initially said on Friday that it would not be opening, as it did not make commercial sense to reopen for deliveries only. It was the last of the major chains that had no plans to offer delivery.

“Opening for delivery only will lose Nando’s and our franchise partners more money than being closed,” Nando’s CEO Mike Cathie said at the time, adding that the company was focused on preserving the jobs of thousands of employees, and could not add to the already enormous weekly losses they are incurring. 

The chain, however, seems to have had a change of heart since, and on Monday released a list of Nando's that would be open after all.
