To be honest, the amount of people who appear as though they can’t cope just because they can’t eat a McDonald’s and what not is a pretty sad indictment on how we are as people these days.
Get a grip.
I, on the other hand, don’t really have a penchant for overpriced chicken, expensive sides and doing all of the legwork surrounded by sixth formers, so I’ve been able to get on with things without much of a fuss.
However, if you are gagging for it, there’s good news, as the high street chicken chain is re-opening six of its restaurants for delivery, with plans to open more in the next couple of weeks.
The famed Peri Peri purveyors shut their doors on March 23rd, and haven’t been seen much of since.
But now they’re teaming up with Deliveroo to bring meals directly to our homes, with four restaurants reopening in London, while two of them are in Manchester.
If you want to know, they’ll be open from 12pm to 9pm.
Here’s the specific restaurants that’ll be open:
London – Clink Street
London – Camberwell
London – Canary Jubilee
London – Gloucester Road
Manchester – Fallowfield
Manchester – Printworks
The six eateries will be operating behind closed doors and will not be offering eat in or collect services at the moment, so don’t try it.
If you don’t live close enough to order you’ll have to either move or wait until a restaurant closer to you reopens, which they have said they’ll start doing if this is successful.
The menu is going to be reduced to help the team maintain social distance in the kitchen and food prep areas, but Nando’s favourites such as PERi-PERi chicken wings, halloumi and PERi chips will be available to enjoy.
The restaurant teams will also be working with Deliveroo to make sure that deliveries are as safe as possible, drivers will maintain social distancing while waiting to pick up orders, while contactless delivery will be available upon request.
Stating that staff and customer safety is their priority, Nando’s state: “Each Nando’s restaurant has been working under Public Health England guidelines for the past week on top of their existing health and safety procedures.
“Every member of the team has been washing their hands more frequently while maintaining social distance during shifts.
“After a successful trial re-opening serving meals to local good causes they are now upping production to serve the public.
“Each restaurant team will continue to cook meals every shift for local charities as part of their No Chuckin Our Chicken programme and NHS health care workers as well as serving the public via delivery.”
The fast food chain add: “The restaurant teams will also be working with Deliveroo to make sure that deliveries are as safe as possible, drivers will maintain social distancing while waiting to pick up orders, restaurant staff will hand over food while maintaining social distance and contactless delivery will be available upon request.”
Wonderful news for chicken lovers in London and Manchester.
