Smart Serve

Smart Serve is a specialist Shoe Repairs and Shoe Care Products business; however, it also offers Key Cutting, Dry Cleaning, Tailoring and allied products and services.

Over the years’, outlets in this industry have declined mainly due to lack of focus on core business coupled with poor and limited service offerings resulting in the closure of some long well-established outlets. This has left a major gap in the market which Smart Serve wishes to fill and operate a chain of outlets by offering an efficient and friendly customer service with a high quality of workmanship.

With over 80 years combined management experience Smart Serve can today offer the aspiring entrepreneur the opportunity to acquire an affordable franchise offering good profitability and a return of investment which is ideally realized within 30 months.
