THE ROOSTER BEHIND GALOS

The Legend of the Galo

In Portugal, in the 15th century, a man was sentenced to hang despite his protests of innocence. In a last-minute appeal to the Judge, who was having dinner at the time, the man made a bold statement. If his claim of innocence was true, the roasted rooster, or in Portuguese the Galo, resting on the Judge’s plate, would get up and crow. Suddenly, a glorious scarlet-plumed cockerel rose from the plate, crowing loud and long. The man was acquitted, of course!

The Galos rooster symbolizes honesty, integrity, trust and honour. When you dine at Galos you can trust that our food is made with the finest and freshest ingredients. We con-sider all of our guests family and we feel good about feed-ing our family good, honest, nutritious and delicious food.

QUALITY & VALUE

Our story meet our strategy & vision

After decades of success in the franchised Flame Grilled Chicken and other food businesses, the team at Galos decided that the only way that they could really deliver the quality and value that they wanted to provide to their customers was to take all they had learned and created their own menu and brand. So here we are with our new concept and menu.

Peri peri sauce (used as a seasoning or marinade) is Portuguese in origin and "especially prevalent in Angola, Namibia, Mozambique and South Africa". It is made from crushed chilies, citrus peel, onion, pepper, garlic, salt, lemon juice, bay leaves, paprika, pimiento, basil, oregano, and tarragon. (Oxford Dictionary)

Peri peri or piri-piri means "pepper pepper". Other romanizations include pili pili in the Democratic Republic of the Congo or peri peri in Malawi, deriving from the various pronunciations of the word in parts of Bantu languages-speaking Africa. Piri-piri is the spelling of the name as used in the Portuguese language, namely in the Portuguese-speaking Mozambican community. (Wikipedia)

I think it's great to be a part of a franchise that is successful. Any franchise is successful because it's a continuation and people have seen it.
