On August 29, Lil’ Chano took to Twitter to announce the appearance. “Meet me at @NandosUSA Michigan Ave opening. I’m grilling on 9/5 @ 6pm to #SupportCPS & raise $ for @SocialWorks_Chi.”
Founded in 1987, Nandos specializes in “Peri-Peri” style Portuguese flamed grilled offerings. An executive from the restaurant explained how the partnership with the rapper was a no-brainer.
“We can’t think of a better ambassador to help Nando’s celebrate the Grand Opening of our flagship Chicago location, and to help support public education in a city we love,” explained Sepanta Bagherpour, Nando’s USA VP of Marketing via a press statement.
“Nando’s has a history of supporting public schools and community non-profits when they open new restaurants, which I really admire,” Chance said. “Besides, they make damn good chicken, so I hope everyone will come out and eat some Peri-Peri chicken and help us raise money for SocialWorks.”
If his rapping abilities are any indication of his skills on the grill, Chicagoans should be in for a real treat. Save us a plate if you are in the Chi.
