"Recently, we began working through a potential and limited reopening. We have been listening to our employees and customers as well as engaging with government and trade bodies to help ensure we do this responsibly, when the time is right.

"Restarting our business is not an easy task even when reopening in a limited capacity.

"We have set ourselves some key criteria for reopening, all of which take time - first and foremost ensuring the well-being of our people and creating the right environment for them to return to work; secondly ensuring we have enough supply of fresh produce; and finally working in-step with government guidelines to ensure the safety of our customers."

"For now we remain closed, and will only reopen when we are absolutely confident we can have the right measures in place to ensure everyone's wellbeing."

These plans come after Nando's announced earlier today that they would be starting a home delivery service from a small number of restaurants.

Food will be served via Deliveroo as of today from six restaurants - two in Manchester and four in London. More are gradually expected to open over the next few weeks.

The decision has been made to start offering the home delivery after Nando's successfully served over 10,000 meals to local charities and NHS workers in the past week. Food will continue to be donated to these causes despite the home delivery being available.

The restaurants will be offering a reduced delivery menu but the majority of Nando's favourites such as PERi-PERi chicken wings, halloumi and PERi chips will be available.
