Nando's Peri-Peri replaces longtime College Park pizza hangout Ratsie's this Sunday.

The new location of Nando's will open at 7400 Baltimore Ave. near the University of Maryland Campus. The previous tenant, Ratsie's, was there since 1984.

The revamped building will have its own design that invokes other locations of Nando's, featuring original South African artwork and textiles, a big communal table suspended from the ceiling, a street-inspired mural and a tile-decorated wall.

For their first three days of business, the chicken chain plans to donate all its proceeds to the University's Campus Pantry.
