WOMEN'S DAY

Woman quote image
On Women’s Day, we celebrate the amazing women who have made and continue to make history. It’s on their shoulders that we’ve built an amazing country. Today we celebrate with an amazing woman’s story of success.

When a young, hopeful and eager Joyce started working at a fast food restaurant in 1997, she had no idea of the path she would blaze and the extraordinary success she would gain. Joyce begun her journey in the fast food industry with no formal education but that didn’t discourage her. She took it upon herself to learn from those around her and seized every opportunity to train and get qualifications. Her passion and willingness was rewarded with promotion after promotion, moving from a General Worker to a Cashier, then Assistant Store Manager and finally Store Manager! Her success story didn’t end there, in 2015 Joyce was promoted to Franchise Manager for Debonairs Pizza! With the wisdom of her journey, she has these inspirational words to share: “I encourage everyone who might think it’s tough to get to the top to look ahead and use what they have to build a future.”

Joyce’s success story continues and we look forward to seeing her grow from strength to strength. At Debonairs Pizza, we take inspiration from a her story and we hope you do too. She is a truly amazing woman!

DEBONAIRS PIZZA PARTNERS WITH IGN, ARCADE X AND LOCAL PROFESSIONAL TEAMS TO EXPLORE GAMING

Computer gaming keyboard
The partnership will marry the world’s largest gaming hub, IGN; two of the top local professional gaming teams, Sinister 5 and White Rabbit; as well as the Arcade X tournament platform to explore gaming and gaming content which has become a notable passion point for many consumers. The objective of the partnership is to engage with this rapidly growing sector of consumers, by adding value to them through sponsoring tournaments and generating local content, thus entrenching its position as a key player and contributor to the gaming economy.

“This is a huge step for a brand that is not related to gaming or gaming technology. It does however illustrate their understanding of gaming as a lifestyle that has broken the barrier from a tiny niche to a legitimate mainstream way of life”, says Gareth Woods, Managing Director at Good Game Well Played – gaming marketing specialists.

Debonairs Pizza has always been a “tech forward” fast food company, being the first to introduce tech innovations such online ordering and the Debonairs Pizza app to South Africa, so the move into the always-online, tech hungry world of gaming is not as foreign as some may think. Debonairs Pizza understands the growing importance of gaming as a passion point for consumers and sees the convenience of their online ordering and free delivery offer as a natural fit with the gaming lifestyle. Debonairs Pizza seeks to add value to both the most casual and avid gamer by creating bespoke content, in collaboration with two professional gaming organisations, White Rabbit Gaming and Sinister 5 – to engage with gamers on their passion and in some cases, their profession.

According to a recent PWC report gaming has shown consistent growth in South Africa, boasting a 6% YOY growth, with 8% YOY (equating to R53-million) in the gaming development sector. In totality, there are 1.6-million connected console gamers, with 39% as professional gamers earning an average of R30000 – R50 000 and 22% earning over R50000 monthly. On average, console gamers enjoy 10 hours of uninterrupted gaming a week with 91% spending more than R2500 a month on gaming.

Every team, plus the coaches and support staff, should be proud of their achievements and dedication to the beautiful game. Debonairs Pizza is proud to be a sponsor of such great talent and solid teamwork. We look forward to seeing all the varsity football teams at next season’s action-packed competition.

AMAZING CHEESE FROM THE EASTERN CAPE

Man making Cheese
Debonairs Pizza is known for creating delicious, innovative and cheesy pizzas. Our cheese is sourced from a local community dairy in the Eastern Cape called the Famous Brands Cheese Company. We get all our special mozzarella and cream cheese from this cheese plant.

The Famous Brands Cheese Company is a partnership between Famous Brands and Coega Dairy. The shareholders of Coega Dairy are 13 dairy farmers (61%) and the Empowerment Trust (39%). The beneficiaries of the trust are six community owned dairy farms (which provide more than 20% of the milk to the Famous Brands Cheese Company), the factory employees and the farm workers. This directly benefits the surrounding communities who are empowered and uplifted through the trust. Not only is the Famous Brands Cheese Company economically valuable to the people of Coega, it is also ecologically sustainable. The factory has all the latest green technology to ensure that there is minimal impact on the environment and that the quality of production is eco-friendly.

Over 500 000kg of cheese are produced monthly at the cheese plant! That’s a massive amount and this number will continue to rise as the factory expands. Debonairs Pizza is proud to be the company’s single biggest customer and we will continue to support the plant as it grows. The Famous Brands Cheese Company makes wonderful cheese so we can keep giving you AMAZING pizza.

SCORE YOUR SLICE OF THE PIZZA

600th Store Opening
7 800kg dough, 161 280 tomatoes, 2 760kg mozzarella and in excess of 60kg origanum will be used to celebrate South Africa's iconic pizza brand, Debonairs Pizza’s 600th restaurant opening. On Monday, 28 November 2016, local restaurants will give away 100 free pizzas in celebration of its 600th restaurant opening in its 25th year. The first 100 patrons at each restaurant who purchase a Real Deal Pizza will receive a second promotional Real Deal pizza and a 500ml coke free. “We want everyone to be able to share amazing moments and our much loved taste wherever they are, which we accomplished by introducing the Real Deal promotion that has made pizza accessible to the broader South African market. To better service existing and new emerging markets has been the driving force behind growing our footprint to this milestone, and why we keep opening new doors,” says Linda Sinclair, Chief Marketing Officer for Famous Brands. “We are honoured by the support that got us to this momentous occasion, and we’re looking forward to celebrating with all our customers that made it possible.”

Founded in 1991, this brand has grown from a single outlet in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu Natal to a network of restaurants extending across Africa as far as the United Arab Emirates. Now, its 600th restaurant will officially be opened on Saturday, 26 November 2016, in Botshabelo near Bloemfontein, Free State. “When we noticed the commercial development in Botshabelo, we immediately reached out to Famous Brands to open what would have been our first Debonairs Pizza franchise, but we couldn’t wait that long. During the mall’s construction, we opened Debonairs Lochlogan in 2015, and Debonairs Willows in July 2016,” says franchisee, Tumi Mohlahlo. “Now, we’re excited to be part of this major milestone, which is testament to the strength of this brand, and the affinity it enjoys from our loyal customers.” When talking about the future, Sinclair says; “Constantly pioneering and innovating the pizza category will remain our driving force.”

The quick service restaurant was the first to introduce free delivery and online ordering, improved on it with their Hot or Not Dot and Acutemp delivery bags; and single-handedly changed the meaning of pizza with speciality pizza innovations like the Triple-Decker®, Double-Stack®, Crammed-Crust®, Filla® and Pop-Itz®.

AN AMAZING TIME AT BUSHBUCKRIDGE

An Amazing Time At Bushbuckridge
When it comes to doing amazing work, you can’t beat our team who are passionate, driven and love seeing happy smiling faces at the end of a project.

The Debonairs Pizza Bushbuckridge team did just this when they visited the Palms Model School orphanage in Bushbuckridge Maviljan to perform an act of kindness. This selfless act was all about bringing joy to the kids. The team brought balloons & Doughnated flat pizza breads, while having lots of fun interacting with the children on the day.

The school consists of more than 40 kids from infants to 18 years of age. There are 5 volunteer teachers from around the community that have dedicated their time and knowledge to the orphanage.

It’s deeply entrenched in Debonairs Pizza’s ethos to go out of our way to help others, and we look forward to spreading our amazing with other projects that will make a difference to the lives of those who are less fortunate.

DEBONAIRS PIZZA OPENS 500TH STORE

Debonairs Pizza Opens 500th Store
November 2014, Debonairs Pizza, South Africa’s most iconic pizza Brand, celebrated an impressive milestone with the opening of our 500th restaurant at Newtown Junction in Johannesburg’s CBD.

Over the years, Debonairs Pizza has been at the forefront of pizza innovation within the South African pizza market. Founded in 1991, the Brand has grown from one single restaurant in Pietermaritzburg in KwaZulu Natal to a network of restaurants extending across South Africa, the rest of Africa and as far afield as India and the United Arab Emirates.

Mohamed Moosa, franchisee of the 500th restaurant, opened his first Debonairs Pizza restaurant in the Carlton Centre in 2004. This happened to be the Brand’s 199th restaurant at the time. Over the years he has become a successful multiple-store operator. Moosa comments, “I am delighted to be opening the Brand’s milestone 500th restaurant, after narrowly missing out on the 200th store milestone. I am very proud to be associated with Debonairs Pizza which has been the market leader for many years, primarily based on our absolute focus on product quality.”

Debonairs Pizza celebrated this achievement in true Debonairs Pizza style on the 10th November 2014.
