Cap­tain DoRe­gos opens shop in Zim

Chronicle (Zimbabwe) - - Business Chronicle - Lin­dani Dube in Hwange

IN­TER­NA­TIONAL fast-food chain, Cap­tain DoRe­gos, will open its first shop in Hwange town today in what ob­servers view as a show of in­vest­ment con­fi­dence in Zim­babwe.

The project has al­ready cre­ated six­teen jobs for lo­cals who have un­der­gone train­ing in South Africa for com­pli­ance with re­gional and in­ter­na­tional stan­dards.

DoRe­gos boasts of dozens of out­lets across Africa with fran­chises run un­der Black­snow, a hold­ing group to Slim­line En­ter­tain­ment com­pany that also op­er­ates in­ter­na­tional fran­chises — Pa­narot­tis and Spur.

Black­Snow hold­ings chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer, Mr Bless­ing Makuro, said the busi­ness tar­geted the min­ing town after re­al­is­ing that res­i­dents had for long been de­prived of ‘de­cent’ fast food ser­vice.

“We will start with Cap­tain DoRe­gos as we add value to the com­mu­nity in the town who are not spoilt for choice in as far as qual­ity and af­ford­able places to have a meal is con­cerned. Cap­tain DoRe­gos op­er­at­ing from Coro­na­tion drive in the CBD will of­fer burg­ers, fish, chips, chicken, and re­fresh­ments. In ad­di­tion, Cap­tain DoRe­gos will for the first time in its trad­ing history of­fer pizza,” said Mr Makuro.

He said this was the best time to come into the min­ing town and the shop was com­mit­ted to pro­vide qual­ity ser­vice to res­i­dents.

“Look­ing at the food in­dus­try and the gap we saw, this was the best time to po­si­tion our­selves here and later ex­pand to ma­jor cities as well as re­mote towns in Zim­babwe,” Mr Makuro said.

The outlet will cater for all in­come earn­ing tar­get groups- low, mid­dle and high with meals pegged from as lit­tle as $3 up to $16. The store has sit-in fa­cil­i­ties for fam­i­lies, TV sets, a sound sys­tem, in­door and out­door ablu­tion fa­cil­i­ties as well as uphol­stered fur­ni­ture to keep cus­tomers com­fort­able.

Mr Makuro and his team have their eyes set on com­mu­nity in­volve­ment through prof­its re­alised to in­clude fa­cil­i­ties for chil­dren such as golf tour­na­ments, soccer
