Name: Christopher Mkhabela
Franchise: Hot Dog Cafe / London Pie
Location: Rivonia Boulevard
Why did you choose franchising?
I was passionate about having my own business one day and started learning more about business including attending seminars and business mentorship pragrammes.
How did you raise finance?
I did not raise any money I got the business through a ‘Cadet’ programme funded by various government departments.
Has becoming a franchisee changed your life?
Certainly, it has because now I am regarded as a profound business man. I can now make appointments with other business people and financially, I now live a better life.
What are your plans for the future?
I plan to pay off my franchise loan within the next three year, raise money and buy two diners plus a coffee stop.
What advise will you give to potential franchisees?
Work very smart, put effort into your business and make sure you do what you really love. Never misuse your business fiances, let them grow. Teach employees about business and always have ideas of how to grow your business.
Would you do it again?
Of course, without any doubt.
