As one of the leading restaurant franchise groups in South Africa, Wimpy is constantly looking to expand its wide network of stores. With a history of almost forty years, and more than 400 restaurants in Southern Africa, they can safely say that they have found the recipe to success.
When you become a franchisee you are assured that you will have the support from Wimpy. When you are up and running they will provide assistance with business training in accounting controls, help organise stock control, and assist you in improving your business in every way possible.
The first South African Wimpy fast food restaurant was in Murchie’s Passage, Durban. In 1972, to capitalise on increasing numbers of holidaymakers flocking from Johannesburg to Durbs-by-the-Sea, Wimpy struck a deal with oil company Mobil (now Engen) to set up Wimpy restaurants at Mobil petrol stations along the Jo’Burg to Durban route. Today, there are more than 40 Wimpy-Engen One-Stops throughout South Africa. In 2003, Wimpy was acquired by Famous Brands, and in 2007, in another twist in the tale, Wimpy South Africa bought out the original Wimpy brand in the United Kingdom.
