Martin and Annalize Piek founded Martin’s Funerals in November 1989.
Martin gave a small office space to his wife at the back of his first business, Penny Shop, only to bring in an extra income. Within a few months, Martin’s Funerals expanded drastically, causing them to close Penny Shop to cope with the demands of Martin’s Funerals.
They used their family car, a Mercedes 230, and a self-designed, home built hearse trailer in the course of their business. Martin, Annalize and two helpers, part-time, started building the business.
Through the grace of God the business expanded at a rapid pace.
They employed more and more staff like general workers, agents, and cleaners. As the business expanded to thirteen branches, fully self-supported, interested parties asked to extend the business over a larger area and to sell them franchises. The company soon grew from one office in Randfontein to a group with 170 outlets country wide, and still growing!
