Gold Brands Investment to participate in the International Franchise Expo (IFE)

South Africa’s fastest growing franchising business, Gold Brands Investments, will be exhibiting two of their much-loved franchise brands at the upcoming International Franchise Expo, taking place on 8 April to 10 April 2016, at the Sandton Convention Centre.

“The expo is an ideal platform for us to showcase our innovative and user-friendly business franchise model,” says Gold Brands COO Stelio Nathanael. “Thousands of people who are looking for an opportunity to start their own business will be there, and our teams will be on hand to talk them through the entire process and explain what makes our franchises such an unbelievable success story.”

The two brands to be exhibited are Chesa Nyama, which has grown from a single store at Wits University in 2012 to over 300 stores across South Africa, Zimbabwe, Swaziland, Botswana, Namibia and Lesotho, and Blacksteer, the Original South African Steak House since 1963.

The Chesa Nyama stand will be flying its traditional black and red colors, and visitors will be treated to a chow-down on all three days during the exhibition. The chow-down, which has become a much-loved feature of the Chesa Nyama stand, is a race to see which 3 competitors can “chow-down” a deliciously prepared ChesaNyama Makhulu tower Burger flame-grilled meal the fastest.

The Black steer’s stand will stick to its traditional cowboy theme; the Blacksteer stand will also feature our delicious mammoth ribs from the restaurant’s hunger-busting menu.

“We want people to enjoy visiting us and see that our stores are about enjoying what you do, about loving food and people, and about sharing experiences with others,” adds Nathanael.

Those interested in attending the expo can book their tickets directly from the IFE website. For more information on the franchising opportunities offered by Gold Brands, including 1+1 Pizza, Pitaland and Chicken Wild Wings, please contact Gold Brands head office on 012 665 2947 or visit
