    The year is 2003. Two ordinary dudes, below average in height, with a pocket full of cash (all in $1’s) & a whale of a dream decided that 17 years of slingin’ tacos & tequila together should be turned into a lifelong gig. The idea was to build a better mousetrap or, in this case, a better Sonoran-style Mexican Restaurant – a place with food to remember, where different was good. So, Fernando & Tim called in all favors &, with the help of the Larson Family, made their dreams come true & opened up Nando’s Mexican Café (“Store One”) in Gilbert, AZ.

    From the traditional family recipes shared with Nando by both his step-dad, Alfred (may he rest in peace and tacos), & his Mom (Nana), to the design of the restaurant – Nando’s has strived for 15 years to become your local family joint. To this day, many of our original Nando’s employees remain with us & have become “Our Nando’s Family” – truly making Family Our Main Ingredient.

    The year is 2009. The two nut jobs decide to open a second restaurant during the biggest recession since the Great Depression. Brilliant thinking. They bring in Sean – a taller, skinny white dude with a knack for numbers & a talent for pacing, to open the infamous “Store Two” in Mesa, AZ.

    Luckily, by providing a product with “a bang for your buck” & countless prayers, they were able to make it through the tough times and Sean, the numbers guy, managed to show these two ordinary dudes they could open up “Store Three” in Chandler, AZ in 2012.
