Top Track 100

Having closed its 448 UK restaurants in response to the coronavirus, Nando’s reopened six kitchens in April to supply 1,500 free meals a day to NHS staff in London and Manchester. Global sales at the Afro-Portuguese-style grilled chicken chain surpassed £1bn for the first time last year, helped by an increase in the number of franchises in Australia. Under group chief executive Rob Papps, 47, it now operates 936 restaurants across 35 countries, including 40 in America.
