Tiles create colour at Nando’s

Tile Africa Contracts supplies the floor and wall tiles for all Nando’s outlets, as at the newly opened Northmead drive-through outlet in Johannesburg seen here.Tile Africa Contracts supplies porcelain, ceramic and slate tiles, including bathroomware, to Nando’s outlets nationally and internationally. The company recently supplied tiles to new Nando’s outlets in Johannesburg and Port Elizabeth as well as Harare and Bulawayo in Zimbabwe. 

Craig Irvine, national contracts manager for Tile Africa Contracts, says, “We understand the challenges of operating in the FMCG – fast-moving consumer goods – industry and our clients appreciate the diversity of the product range and the service excellence that our team offers.” 

The Nando’s drive-through in Northmead, Johannesburg, one of the latest outlets, presents an example of how colourful and carefully considered tile layouts can add to the ambience that a restaurant brand wants to portray. In this outlet, 60 by 60mm brown porcelain tiles have been used on the floor and 600 by 600mm retro black and yellow porcelain tiles on the outside walls, with a touch of bright red on columns and windowsills. 

“Nando’s restaurants feature natural products, such as timber, which provide an earthy feel in addition to the rich colours that are warm and inviting, reflecting the Afro-Portuguese influence,” says Dave Cousins, designer at Nando’s. 

The floors are typically finished with black and terracotta tiles to tie in with the Portuguese colonial feel. Curved patterns are used rather than straight lines to help create a layout that is different, funky and abstract. Brightly coloured Douglas Jones mosaics are also incorporated into Nando’s restaurants. 

Tile Africa Contracts offers a full circle of services, from concept to completion.
