Munyeza clinches Ocean Basket franchise

HARARE - Businessman Shingi Munyeza — through his investment vehicle Vinale Investments (Vinale) — has clinched a franchise for South African seafood restaurants chain Ocean Basket.

Ruddy Makoni, Vinale’s operations manager, told Business Live that they are set to open their first Ocean Basket outlet at the upmarket Sam Levy shopping centre in Borrowdale by mid-December.

Makoni, also operations manager of Munyeza’s Gallado Investments — which holds the Mugg & Bean franchise in Zimbabwe — said “a lot is happening for us at the moment.”

“We have a Mugg & Bean branch opening in Avondale tomorrow (yesterday), and we also have plans to open other branches in the country,” he said.

Ocean Basket’s menus comprise mainly seafood —  prawns, fish, calamari and sushi — usually coupled with fries.

Makoni added that they were planning to open a restaurant-bar also in Borrowdale under the News Café banner.

“It will be opening very soon, but I cannot give an exact date of opening at the moment,” he said, adding that they also intended to set up a frozen yoghurt business.

“The frozen yoghurt business will be a refreshment from the usual ice cream places. It will be called Smoch, and we will be serving the ultimate alternative to ice cream,” said Makoni.

Well done Shingi & your team keep up the good work...There have been reports however that there are some items meant for the dustbin you are refusing your workers to take home. Dont be cruel guys we see you addressing church gatherings portraying to be man of God...Practise what you preach Shingi...
