January 30, 2011 - Following the successful opening of ten stores in 2010, one of South Africa’s leading family pizza franchises, Scooters Pizza has expanded into the Southern African region with a new store opening in Windhoek, Namibia.
“The decision to extend the pizza franchise across a national border was reinforced by Taste Holdings’, Scooters Pizza’s holding company, long-term growth strategy. Scooters Pizza’s growing success is attributed to competencies such as analysing consumers’ needs and market trends whilst implementing operational strategies,” says CEO of Taste Holdings Food Division, Christo Calitz.
Franchisee of the Windhoek store, Amen Sunday Nghidengwa, is confident about his new business venture and opening the first ever Scooters Pizza store in Namibia.
“I decided it was time to open my own store after working for several years in the franchise industry with various brands. The extensive managerial experience I have gained will assist me in maintaining Scooters Pizza’s overall customer satisfaction and impeccable reputation. Through friendly, quick, affordable and quality meal offerings, I trust that my customers will be unable to resist coming back for more,” says Nghidengwa.
While Nghidengwa strives for his store to be the preferred customer choice through operational excellence and best service delivery in Windhoek, corporate social investment initiatives are important to him too. “We will look at getting involved with community and school based projects, orphanages and old-age homes to see where we can make a difference in people’s lives,” says Nghidengwa.
“The opportunity to expand exists in Namibia as consumers have embraced the convenience of quality, made-to-order meals. With Scooters Pizza’s fresh, dynamic and innovative approach, we are certain that the store will be a strong competitor in the country’s fast-food market,” concludes Calitz.
