Nando's Qatar's Salwa Road branch winner to compete in Master Griller's Challenge 2019 in Dublin
Every year different branches of Nando's from across the globe organize inter-casa competition in their respective regions to choose the finalists for the Master Griller Challenge.
The best of the best then go on to compete against each other to win the title for the Master Griller and represent their country at the finals.
After month-long rounds of competition, Nando's Qatar announced its winner Joey Saturnino Manzano from Salwa Road branch (the first Nando's in Qatar) who will represent Qatar in Dublin, Ireland for the Nando's Master Grillers 2019.
At the finals, the judges, famous social media influencers, Mr. Q from I Love Qatar, Food Sheikh & Food Sheikha along with Nando's Superfan Layth Elnegres were asked to rate a perfectly flame-grilled chicken based on its presentation, texture, juiciness, perfect flame-grill marks, hygiene, and flavor.
Learning and Development Manager of Nando's Qatar Magnus Potgieter said, "In Nando's, we believe that it is not about the chicken but people who make the chicken."
"Master Griller challenge is Nando's way of giving it back to the Nandocas (people who work at Nando's) with passion and dedication every single day," he added.
"All of our finalists performed spectacularly well and put their heart and soul to win the title. Also, throughout the competition, we have had great support from the local food experts, social media influencers and the judges at the finals to help us get our winner this year. The grand finale is going to be fierce. We are excited and proud that we have our best griller to represent us in Dublin," Magnus said.
