Nando’s celebrates the launch of two brand new PERi-PERi Bag & Bake Flavours with a bright and cheerful #PERiTricks pop-up in the heart of Jozi’s Braamfontein.
The Afro-Portuguese brand has added two exciting flavours to its do-it-at-homes repertoire – Paprika Citrino and Smokey Churrasco. These bags allow customers to add a Nando’s zing to their home-cooked meals.
These spicy flavours inspired a selection of #PERiTricks recipes that reinvent some of South Africa’s favourite foods and ingredients.
Customers will get to discover these recipe tricks between 24 June and 10 July 2022 at a quirky and vibrant pop-up in Braamfontein. Think super fun recipes made in a tumble dryer, air fryer or even with an iron.
Pairing with a local design studio, Studio H, the team celebrate local creativity and smart thinking, adding a plethora of local creatives to the concept, from cinematography art and design to the culinary arts.

The team joined forces with food creative and stylist Kelesto Motau and textile and surface designer Bonolo Chepape. “Our collaboration with young stars like Bonolo and Keletso is part of our ongoing drive to nurture creative talent in South Africa. As an authentically home-grown brand, we welcome all South Africans to a seat at our table. At our pop-up, they’ll be able to engage with our brand in an interactive and fun way and gain greater insight into the creativity and innovation that drives our brand,” says Vanessa Nunes, the Marketing Manager for Groceries at Nando’s.
Brought to life by Stretch Architects, the playful space brings an edge of afro-futurism and clever out-of-the-box thinking to the forefront.
While customers are welcome to just pop into the pop-up, it is advised that they book and guarantee their spots at nandos.co.za/popup.
