Scooters Pizza Fairlands have Fired up their Ovens
Mokakole Mapetla is the proud new owner of Scooters Pizza Fairlands and he is really looking forward to serving the community mouth-watering pizzas, outstanding service, and naturally, a slice of the good life.
“My team and I can’t wait to get the ovens going and we are all looking forward to becoming the fast food of choice within Fairlands,” says Mapetla.
Mapetla worked as a dental therapist for ten years before opening up his own Scooters franchise. Mapetla has always wanted to go into his own business and decided that a food franchise would be the way to go.
“It was a lengthy decision process because I wanted to make sure that I was getting involved in the right industry. I made a list of all pizza brands available in South Africa according to national footprint, investment amount required, and of course, the taste of a final product, and Scooters Pizza came out tops for me after ticking all the boxes. I now can proudly call myself a business owner of my own franchise,” he continues.
Mapetla believes that the key elements to running a successful business is the ability to conform and adapt to standardised business operations in order to satisfy customer needs and expectations. He adds that another key factor is willingness to work within a team, as the advantage of a franchised business is that every employee’s role is clearly defined in the operations manual, which makes it easy to identify the strengths and weaknesses of every employee.
Christo Calitz, CEO of Taste Holdings: Food Division says that Mapetla has taken on a great career choice. “We are very excited to welcome Mokakole to the Scooters Pizza family and we have no doubt that he will experience many happy years with us. Scooters Pizza offers its franchisees many opportunities to grow which will enable Mapetla to truly reach his career potential.”
“I am beyond excited about my new adventure, and I am committed to providing Fairlands with only the best customer service and top quality food. Our entire team is looking forward to meeting everyone that walks through our doors and we invite you to come try some our delicious pizza, tasty wraps, pizones, subs and irresistible desserts,” he concludes.
