A slice of Scooters Pizza goes to Swakop
Scooters Pizza’s successful entry into the Namibian fast food market has been further bolstered as a third store has been opened, this time in Swakopmund. The addition follows after franchise owner, Amen Sunday Nghidengwa opened two stores in Windhoek last year.
CEO of Taste Holdings Food Division, Christo Calitz notes that the opening of the third store, situated at the Vineta Complex on Verde Street, was motivated by the impressive business performance of the other two stores.
“It is through committed franchisees like Amen, who are growing their businesses within the group that we drive the reputation of Scooters Pizza, and allow the brand to expand its footprint and organic growth. As the two Windhoek stores have achieved remarkable success, it was a suitable and financially viable decision to expand our reach and offer consumers in Swakopmund a slice of the good life too,” says Calitz.
Nghidengwa states that he plans to replicate the model that has proven successful at the two Windhoek outlets. “The notable impression that the franchise has made in Windhoek created a long term legacy for Scooters Pizza in Swakopmund” he said.
“Owing to my experience in the franchise industry, Scooters Pizza has already become a firm favourite among the public in Windhoek because the staff and management are motivated and committed to providing only the best in terms of service and meal offerings. I intend to strive for the same outcome in Swakopmund.”
Since its inception in 2000, Scooters Pizza has expanded to become a leading family pizza franchise in the fast food industry, and currently has over 137 stores open in South Africa, Lesotho and Namibia.
“The performance of Scooters Pizza in Windhoek has met all of our expectations, and we are delighted that consumers have embraced the delectability of our meal offerings. Similar results from our store in Swakopmund will provide an ideal showcase for the brand to extend our service offering even further.”
