A South African Tradition

Braai Hut

Full Description

The Brand

A braai is South Africans favourite food and the Braai Hut brand was started in Bloemfontein in 2013. The concept is to offer a convenient take away to everyone without the process of a braai or having to wait for the next braai.

Our aim is to open franchises across South Africa and also in neighbouring countries where we have stores pending for Botswana and Lesotho. The food and the concept is loved by all and we want to bring it to everyone.


Braai Hut offers an affordable, sustainable franchise to people to enter the franchise market with a huge opportunity for growth.

Traditional braai food is offered as the main meals which includes meat and chicken and served with pap, rice or chips. Only the best quality meat is used and the food is freshly prepared. The menu is constantly updated and we also allow a little freedom to franchisees to include some “local taste” on the menu. This attracts more customers and also makes them feel at home in the franchise.

The stores are very attractive and functional. The smell of a braai and the décor attracts people and we literally create a hunger. Our target market is everybody who loves a braai.

The ideal store size is 70m² to 100m² to be situated in malls, shopping centres, garages etc., and is dependent on good feet count and visibility. You will be needing 4 to 6 staff members depending on the trading hours.


Braai Hut is involved from the start with the selection of premises as well as landlord negotiations and staff selection. Staff training is done onsite to save costs and we support the franchisee in all aspects of running their own franchise which is ongoing after opening.
