I thought it was a good product but had no bones about charging too much... every now and again you could get a chicken cut in quarters for probably less than coles charges now so it's all swings and roundabouts really when you think about it! (Unless they're prices have gone up in the least ten years+, of course, lol :bgrin :bike :bike :bike :bike :bike

Never went into one of their places. I don’t tend to patronise places like that.

I tried it once several years ago, I felt it was over priced for it's product


that said, them forcing franchisee to spend up to $1m in refurbs or no more franchise agreement, after spending an average of $400k to buy the franchise in the first place, should be outlawed. It's extortion. Most of the ones I've seen net less than $200k a year ..... by the time they pay of the refurb it's time for another refurb. It's a ridiculous position to put francisee's into.

I hope that bitch who was running their brothels for them gets raped with a cactus.

and yet, it seems Nandos, were hugely participant in sending their left-over food to charities.. They have fed many poor people. people who now won't get to eat that food.

Oh well.

The management is a bit high falutin' which is quite strange really considering some of the store managers they appoint- but then they are obviously on their best behaviour because I think they've been told their postion/s is/are extrememly safe if they tow the line: but undeniably as a company they are looking for that little bit better clientele with their prices!

Their marketing girl was a kook... but that's what they wanted I supppose.


So, ya know: that's how it goes...

I had no problem with them: they gave you free food and you can't ask for much more than a basic wage at a fast food joint. :bike :bike :bgrin

Good on 'em: I didn't know that and would never have really suspected it so was pleasantly surprised by that news and had a flashback to two of the owners when you said that: but then again, I did think at the time that the management was basically humanistic- apart from some of the apparently-appointed-for-life-for-some-f'n-very-strange-reason(!??!)-store-managers of course lol!
