Nando's Peri-Peri restaurants had planned to give away free chicken Tuesday, Nov. 17, in an effort "to put the 'united' back in the United States." However the event was canceled Friday due to spikes in COVID-19 cases and new restrictions in some areas where the restaurant operates.
“While we are clearly a nation divided, we sincerely hope that American voters can reach across the table and celebrate democracy--and move forward as a nation,” said Sepanta Bagherpour, Chief Brand Officer of Nando’s U.S. operations.
During the election cycle, Nando’s put voter registration on its menu. Literally. Customers ordered voter-registration forms directly from the menu at every Nando’s in the US, and took home more than 200,000 registration applications and voter-resource flyers, showing prospective voters how to quickly update their voter-registration status online.
