At Senhor Calisto's we’re dedicated to consistency and providing quality products and service. We also have the best tasting chicken in South Africa!

The Brand

The franchise brand Senhor Calisto’s has its roots from the famous Calisto’s Portuguese Restaurant. The take-away concept was introduced in 2012 and is growing rapidly, currently with nineteen stores.


We offer great value for money and specialise in Peri-Peri chicken, pregos, prawns and fish. Our target market is across the spectrum.


We provide three weeks hands on training at an existing store as well as Gaap POS training. Once the store is open we will continue to provide on-going support and further training whenever needed.

Are You Our Next Franchisee?

The ideal franchisee is an individual with an entrepreneurial outgoing nature and a burning desire to own and grow his own successful company. They should take pride in their establishment, as well as the brand, and do everything in their power to further the success of the brand and image of the brand. Hands on operator, hardworking and preferably owner run.
