Nando's set to open its third Belfast restaurant

By John Mulgrew

Chicken chain Nando's is set to open a new restaurant in Northern Ireland with a spot in south Belfast.

It has applied for planning permission for a new location at Boucher Retail park. It will be its fourth restaurant here.

It comes after the Belfast Telegraph revealed last month that the chain was expanding with at least one new store in the city, although it would not reveal the location.

As well as its two current branches in the city, it operates a third in Londonderry.

The chain merely said that the restaurant would open "at the end of the year".

In 2010, Advertising Age magazine named Nando's as one of the world's top 30 hottest marketing brands. And now the chain is seeking to hire assistant managers for its new offering in Belfast.

Nando's operates more than 1,000 restaurants across the globe, with almost 300 across the UK and the Republic.
