Spur Launches Its First Drive-Thru Restaurant In South Africa. The Spur Corporation has launched its first drive-thru restaurant as it aims to offer broader appeal and convenience to customers.
According to Business Tech, the drive-thru, situated in Karenspark in Pretoria, will offer meals that are traditionally sold at its restaurants including burgers, chicken wings, ribs and onion rings, the group said. In addition, the drive-thru menu will include more snack-focused items including breakfast in-hand and roadhouse-style desserts, it said. Alongside the drive-thru is a traditional Spur restaurant where customers can have a sit-down meal.
“We are extremely excited to be launching the Spur brand into the drive-thru category, we are most grateful for the tremendous efforts of our internal teams and for the trust and partnership of our franchisee partner, Charles Fourie and his broader team,” Chief Executive Val Nichas told Business Tech.
Spur Corporation is a steakhouse franchise restaurant chain originating from South Africa with a focus on family dining. The head office of Spur Corporation is situated in Century City, Cape Town. Although the founding and flagship brand is the Spur steakhouse restaurants, the company owns a number of other, predominantly South African, restaurant brands. Despite its South African origin, Spur restaurants use Native American themes extensively, both in its marketing and decor. The restaurant brands itself as “the official restaurant of the South African family”; as such, most Spur restaurants include a children’s play area.
“Spur Steak Ranches is a on a journey of transformation as a brand and business. The introduction of the drive-thru is one of the progressive steps we are taking towards a more sustainable brand and business.” Nichas added.
The Spur Group consists of Spur International, Spur Steak Ranches, Panarottis Pizza Pasta, John Dory’s Fish Grill Sushi, The Hussar Grill, RocoMamas, Spur Grill & Go and Casa Bella.
