Nando’s Partners with K Hospitality Corp to Expand India Biz

The Nando’s founders always had the vision of sharing the best flame-grilled PERi-PERi chicken with the rest of the world. Across 5 continents, 22 countries and with more than 1200 restaurants, it is now time to make the table bigger and share this saucy secret with more of India.

Nando’s has entered into a joint venture partnership with K Hospitality Corp. A group with an incredible track record for growth and success over the last 50 years, and has today become India’s largest privately held food and beverage company.

“Selling spicy, flavourful food to the food-loving nation that invented it is no easy feat. But with their deep market knowledge, we are incredibly excited to welcome K Hospitality Corp as our joint venture partner into the family ”, said John Sikiotis, Nando’s CEO for Licensed Markets and India.

Together with K Hospitality Corp, Nando’s India has some serious expansion ambitions, with plans to open as many as 150 restaurants in new cities over the next decade.

The newest hotspot is planned for Hyderabad, the first in the city, in just a few short weeks.

“As brands and businesses, both partners have a lot in common, which not only includes an insatiable taste for Nando’s signature flame-grilled PERi-PERi chicken but also an equally strong passion for hospitality and people. We look forward to scaling up Nando’s presence across multiple cities in India over the coming decade”, shared Karan Kapur, Executive Director for K Hospitality Corp.

With both businesses being family owned, there is a shared value system and a belief that people make the difference.

“It’s not just about the chicken, it’s also very much about the people who make the chicken” said Sameer Bhasin, Nando’s CEO for India.
