Wait what? Is Nando’s shutting down its operations in Malaysia anytime soon?
The public were initially left in shock after Nando’s Malaysia posted a statement on their official Facebook page, saying, “It’s time to say goodbye. Thanks for the memories.”
The farewell, however, was not as dramatic as what netizens thought to be! Turns out, Nando’s Malaysia is only bidding adieu to their old plates and bowls as its outlets will be undergoing a makeover for a more modern look. According to MMO, the official web page of Nando’s Malaysia revealed that the “new, more colourful crockery” is designed by young South African artists.
Additionally, Nando’s Malaysia will be selling off their old dishes to the public for price as low as RM2 per piece. As stated on their social media post, “All of the proceeds will go to the The Lost Food Project. Don’t forget to bring your carrier bag or box, okay?”
A spokesperson from Nando’s Malaysia further revealed that the restaurants will be displaying the old crockery in front of their outlets and it is limited to eight pieces per person. For those wondering, the sale has officially started yesterday (Wednesday, 13th October).
