Milton Keynes-based Nando’s Griller is a finalist in Nando’s Grillers’ Challenge 2024

    Swathi Mulagani, Griller from Nando’s Milton Keynes, The Hub, has reached the UK and Ireland final of Nando’s Grillers’ Challenge 2024.

    Nando’s Grillers’ Challenge is an international competition that takes place every year. It celebrates and tests the skill and passion behind our famous PERi-PERi chicken. Each country, which has a Nando’s restaurant, whittles down their very best Grillers and one from each country goes head-to-head to battle it out in an International Final. A showdown to end all showdowns.

    Garry Duncan, Operations Director of Nando’s UK and Ireland, said, “Congratulations to Swathi and the other UK and Ireland finalists. Reaching this final is a huge achievement and something to be very proud of. The skill level and passion shown from all our competitors has been incredible.”

    The UK and Ireland leg of the competition has been on fire, involving over 480 restaurant heats, 30 quarter-final heats and 6 semi-finals to reach the ultimate UK final.

    It’s so much more than a cook-off, each electrifying round tests the Griller’s technical skill, passion and knowledge of what makes the tastiest PERi-PERi chicken.

    Garry continued, “The Grillers’ Challenge is so much more than a competition. It celebrates what make’s Nando’s unique and puts our famous PERi-PERi chicken in the spotlight whilst honouring our Southern African roots. This competition also gives us an opportunity to celebrate the amazing talent within our teams on a global stage, whilst igniting ambition and broadening horizons.”

    The UK and Ireland final will take place on Tuesday 2 July 2024 in Birmingham. The winner, together with the runners up, will head to the International Final in Botswana later this year.
