Nando's Wimbledon running out of chicken on the bone and butterfly chicken! What can I have? "Wings or wraps" No thanks :( @NandosUK
1. This week the unthinkable happened. A branch of Nando’s in Leicester ran out of chicken, leaving diners with empty plates. But guess what? It’s happened again.
Customers at the Wimbledon branch complained on 30 June that there was no chicken left, while others were offered wraps instead of chicken the bone.
Susan French told the Standard: “When I went in they told me they had run out of chicken. It was absolutely ridiculous. They’re a chicken restaurant that can’t serve chicken. I could not believe it. It was a complete joke.”
3. The rush was caused by people ordering takeaway by using their paper loyalty cards, which expired on Monday.
All we can say is that we did warn you.
4. Plus, Nandos just launched a takeaway app that lets you order using your phone.
5. Nandos says:
The launch of Online Takeaway has been incredibly popular, and with many customers also wanting to use their final remaining chillies on their old paper loyalty cards, unfortunately some restaurants ran out of certain options for a short period of time. We would like to apologise to those customers who couldn’t get their preferred meal.
