Spur Corporation is a leading casual dining restaurant franchise group of more than 600 outlets across South Africa, the rest of Africa, Mauritius and the Middle East. We have a franchise-based business model, with individual restaurants owned and managed by independent, entrepreneurial franchisees. We build meaningful partnerships with our franchise restaurants that involve the sharing of intellectual property, experience, skills, support services and infrastructure.
The group owns seven well-established and diverse brands, including some of South Africa’s iconic family restaurant brands, namely Spur Steak Ranches, Rocomamas, Panarottis, Hussar Grill, John Dory’s, Cassa Bella and Nikos.
The group has recently defined a common purpose of “FOR THE GREATER GOOD”, with a focus on creating meaningful brand experiences. Our approach is on consumer-led innovations and initiatives to continue building franchise brands that “Lead the Experience”. Our passion and strategic competency for family hospitality underpin everything we do for our customers to provide them with a safe, attractive and unique dining experience that resonates in this changing world.
Our purpose is supported by clearly-defined organisational values and leadership behaviours. Our leaders are expected to set an example for teams to entrench a company ethos that creates a high level of performance, equality and fairness, as well as a workplace that embraces optimism and fun.
The group has created a diverse leadership team with a powerful combination of broader industry experience and intimate company-specific knowledge. The executive team has successfully transformed in less than two years to 50% female and 50% black and the group’s board has 50% black and 60% female members. Black ownership at a franchise level has improved from 22% to 29% in the last year.
