Nando's Reinstates Student's Favourite Burger Following Teen's Relentless Campaign
The popular purveyor of poultry previously announced that it was shortening its menu due to the pandemic - but the omission of the Sunset chicken burger didn't sit right with Andreas Health.
The 17-year-old used to eat the burgers most weeks and when Nando's extended its menu in January, but still left off his beloved Sunset, he decided to take action.
Andreas, from Stockport, vowed to contact Nando's every day until the dish - two flame-grilled PERi-PERi chicken thighs, cheese, spinach, and smoky red pepper jam in a bun - was reinstated.
His campaign won the backing of boxer Anthony Joshua and on day 37 Nando's finally relented, telling Andreas his 'persistence paid off'.
Explaining why he embarked on this noble quest, Andreas said: "When they were able to do deliveries after the first lockdown lifted they ran a restricted menu, but kept the Sunset burger off!
"I put up with it for however many months because the pandemic seemed to have forced their hand.
"But then they started introducing brand new items to their menu. I just didn't understand why and didn't want to see the death of that burger.
"I messaged them as a bit of a joke but people were getting on board with it. Then Anthony Joshua crops up and comments underneath on the second day which was mad.
"I was really consistent with it and it paid off."

After all of his hard work, Andreas wasted no time in getting his teeth into one, ordering a delivery immediately.
He said: "It is honestly my favourite thing. The mix of flavour you get from that burger really is like nothing else.
"I am genuinely so happy. The minute they announced it was back I ordered one straight away.
"When the delivery man arrived I genuinely could have hugged him.
"I just had to be alone at that moment. My mum was upstairs working while I was in pure bliss.
"They have changed the recipe though. They've changed the baby spinach for crunchy lettuce. I'm not too sure why they did that but regardless it was still delicious."
To top it all off, Nando's told Andreas to get in touch because it had 'something' for him. It turned out to be a £20 voucher, which didn't quite live up to Andreas' lofty hopes, but still, his campaign has clearly been a resounding success.
He said: "To be honest when they messaged me saying they had something for me I was almost expecting free meals for a year or something. But I suppose I can get a free burger out of it.
"There's so much doom and negativity around at the moment and I think what I've done has put a smile on people's faces."
