Nando’s was born in 1987 in South Africa, although the tale of Nando’s and our inspirational Peri-Peri takes us back much further in time.
From the humble beginnings, Nando’s Restaurants have now opened in 34 countries on five continents around the world, launched in Dhaka in August, 2007.
MGH Restaurants Pte. Limited is the Master Franchisee of Nandos in Bangladesh, and in Nepal. With the first 550 square meter sprawling Flag Ship Store opened in Dhanmondi, Dhaka, MGH opened the second 550 square meter store in Gulshan in 2009, the Premium Suburb of Bangladesh.
The three-storied Gulshan Store prides of being fitted with Green Initiatives commencing from usage of 150 years-old abandoned heritage-bricks recovered from a demolished site at Old Dhaka, Rain Water preservation for day to day usage of water as well as RO (Reverse Osmosis) process to reuse the daily waste water from the operations. Solar Panels have been installed to power part of the store as a phase wise roll out.
There three new store locations being ear-marked for possible launches with in January, 2012. The locations are at Banani, Gulshan-2, and at Karwan Bazar.
MGH Restaurants signed up as Franchisee of Barista Lavazza with the objective to provide an authentic Italian coffee drinking experience in a warm, friendly, no pressure environment. We began operations in the year 2008 as we felt the time was right for the Bangladeshi consumers to experience a café that provided a third space, away from work and home, where the guest could relax and unwind.
Restaurant-inner-image Lavazza traces its origins back to 1895, when Luigi Lavazza purchased a little grocery store, Paissa Olivero, in the old commercial section of Turin for 26,000 Italian Lire, about US$ 20. In the early 1900’s, he invented the concept of the blend – a complex art of mixing together coffee of different origins to obtain a distinctive taste and harmonious flavour in the cup. Before the turn of the century, the name Lavazza evolved into an international powerhouse and the unofficial ambassador of Italy, being synonymous with all things Italian – creativity, art, passion and of course, espresso.
MGH has three outlets at Karwan Bazar, Gulshan-1, and at Uttara near to the International Airport.
