Gold Brands is dedicated to growing into South Africa’s leading franchising company – and we are making great inroads to achieving our goal.
We started out in 2012 with only one Chesanyama store at Wits University. Encouraged by the Chesanyama franchise’s amazing growth we launched 1+1 Pizza, followed by both Pitaland and Chicken Wild Wings in 2013, and Gold Brands Sauces in 2014.
During our bumper year of 2015, we acquired the legendary Blacksteer brand and celebrated Chesanyama’s RASA Rosetta Award for Best Take-Away - and its 294th store!
By the end of 2015 our little franchise business had grown to a total of 331 stores across our five brands.
2016 will see us listing on the JSE AltX and achieving an incredible 320 Chesanyama stores by the end of February.
There’s no doubt that these are exciting times and that Gold Brands is proving itself as a major player in the industry.
We have a vision to become the leading franchise company, both within the South African as well as the International markets, by offering our customers unique and authentic brands with unbeatable value - backed by our cost-efficient and reliable supply chain and our simple, clever business models.
Our mission is:
