This Week's Houston Deal Sheet

Popular South African fast-casual restaurant Nando's Peri-Peri will open two Houston locations ahead of a Texas expansion.

Post Oak Plaza

The chain, which has most of its U.S. outposts around Washington, D.C., and in Chicago, will open next year in Houston's Post Oak Plaza in Uptown as well as in La Centerra in Cinco Ranch. It is the first new market expansion for the company in seven years.

“Our authentic flavors were born in South Africa but are built for Houston. We can’t wait to welcome Nando’s newcomers and loyalists who have long lobbied for us to come to Texas and to this fast-growing city known for its incredible diversity and culinary scene,” Nando's Peri-Peri USA CEO John Fisher said in a press release.

The 3,200 SF Uptown location is in the redeveloping Post Oak Plaza, which has seen multiple new tenants recently, including popular Houston restaurant Kenny & Ziggy's. The Nando's location there will be designed by Austin firm Michael Hsu Office of Architecture. The tenant and landlord were represented by Shop Cos. 


Gensler appointed Jerry Alexander as co-managing director of its Houston office. He joins Stephanie Burritt, also a co-managing director. Alexander was most recently Gensler's global leader in its brand design practice, a role he will continue to hold. He is a principal in Houston as well.
