(Before It's News)

Nando’s PERi-PERi, the South African-Portuguese restaurant known worldwide for its spicy flame-grilled chicken, hatches two new Chicagoland restaurants this month in Skokie and Oakbrook. Nando’s will pay it forward by donating 100 percent of sales each opening day to support student programs at Niles North High School and Hinsdale Central High School.

  • SKOKIE: Nando’s ninth Chicago location will open on Sunday, November 13, in Westfield Old Orchard mall. Nando’s will donate opening-day sales to Niles North High School. The restaurant is located at 4999 Old Orchard Center, Skokie, IL. Phone: 847-972-6833
  • OAKBROOK: Nando’s tenth Chicago location will open on Sunday, November 20, in Oakbrook Center. Nando’s will donate opening-day sales to Hinsdale Central High School. The restaurant is located at 523 Oakbrook Center, Oak Brook, IL. Phone: 630-230-4348

“As newcomers to the Skokie and Oakbrook areas, we wanted to be good neighbors and help raise funds for two deserving local high schools,” said Burton Heiss, CEO of Nando’s PERi-PERi USA. “We can’t wait to fire up our grills at our ninth and 10th Chicagoland locations.”

Opening-day sales in Skokie will be donated to the Niles North High School’s “Dance Marathon” charity organization, with proceeds earmarked for local families and students in need and for Hope Junior, an afterschool program that offers children and teens high-quality after-school program activities throughout Chicago. Opening-day sales in Oakbrook will be donated to the Hinsdale Central High School’s performing arts program, to help offset costs of five plays and musicals this school year.

Nando’s 11th Chicagoland location opens in mid-January 2017 in the Hyde Park neighborhood, at 1447 E. 53rd Street near the University of Chicago.

Nando’s, which operates restaurants in 23 nations from Australia to Zimbabwe, first moved to the United States in 2008. It set up shop in Washington, DC, and, since then, has opened three dozen restaurants in and around Chicago and the nation’s capital.

Nando’s has built an intensely loyal following, from London to the Loop, by providing fresh food in a relaxed atmosphere with friendly service. Nando’s is known worldwide for its succulent PERi-PERi chicken, marinated for 24 hours, flame-grilled to perfection, and basted to the customer’s preferred flavor and spice. Every Nando’s is painstakingly designed and completely unique, with earthy textures and bright colors that reflect its 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.
