  • Gauteng

Ideal premises, between 160 m2 to 200 m2, situated in a highly visibly location, (preferably a corner site). Easy pedestrian access with a constant high volume of foot traffic is essential.

The initial training program is typically conducted over a 6 week period, facilitated by dedicated operations trainers.

Ongoing training and support

Regional Managers, assisted by Regional Kitchen Technicians, provide ad hoc training and weekly support on a variety of issues, ranging from detailed kitchen processes, through to benchmarking and business planning, ensuring that your restaurant operates at its optimum.

An extensive Operations Manual, together with diagrammatic in-store recipe, process and systems cards provide both yourself and your management with quick reference and self-help tools on a wide variety of items.

Galito’s Background & History

The Galito’s story began with the first restaurant opening in Nelspruit, Mpumulanga. With a powerful combination of great tasting chicken, passionate service and pride, Galito’s quickly became the Lowveld favourite.

After opening several successfully restaurants within the region, Galito’s decided to share its unique flavour with the rest of South Africa and in 2003, initiated its brand development and franchising journey. It was at this point that Galito’s franchising efforts took off in earnest, opening to huge acclaim in Gauteng, Kwa-Zulu Natal, Limpopo, and Eastern Cape over the next few years.

In recent years Galito’s has spread its wings into Africa – Kenya, Ghana and Senegal, Zambia and Malawi, and further abroad, Canada, United Arab Emirates and India.
