Founded in December 2001 in Covington, Louisiana, Paul Ballard had a dream for a restaurant that would connect with a broad segment of the casual dining market. He began by putting together a team he could count on; his brothers Steven and Scott. With hard work, vision, practical experience and commitment to customer service, the Ballard brothers developed WOW Café.
Nando’s Peri-Peri, located at 1210 18th St NW, Washington, DC which will make for a quick trip at only 12 minutes away, is an Afro-Portuguese chain restaurant serving chicken in spicy chili sauce.
