JOHANNESBURG, October 12, 2021 (www.drewafrica.com)- Waterfall City is about to get a new lavish online restaurant, one that very deliberately shatters the glass ceiling.
The restaurant, SHOKA Fresh Foods, will be both owned and managed by women and minorities, who also happen to be young black sisters of age 23 and 26 -- a rarity in an industry long dominated by White, older men. SHOKA Fresh Foods is finalizing a partnership with one of the leading online food ordering and delivery platforms in South Africa.
The young partners expect this restaurant to extend frontiers from mergers and acquisitions to profitable and fully functional luxurious chef-style franchises across the globe.
SHOKA Fresh Foods is the brainchild of Rixongile Ngobeni who most recently was the youngest black female franchisee at Sausage Saloon, and Katekile Ngobeni, an outstanding Corporate Finance and Insurance graduate from the University of Witwatersrand.
Early on, the joke was that the restaurant’s name is a joint name of both founders and amazingly, caught people’s attention as a restaurant that continues to “shock” people with excellence and class amidst other well known restaurant competitors in the luxurious Waterfall City neighbourhood.
“We spent so many months, days and hours trying to make sure we launch a restaurant that people would want to be seen supporting, I can’t believe the puzzle is slowly coming together”, said Katekile.
“Being sisters and business partners at the same time comes with so much responsibility, it’s also emotionally taxing, especially when you also live together; but I honestly don’t think I would’ve been able to keep pushing if I wasn’t doing this with my sister”, says Rixongile.
The banging sister bosses can’t wait to see what life has to offer with this amazing new restaurant officially beginning it’s operations this October.
