Student entrepreneur Sinelile Zulu founded Fish and Chips on Campus earlier this year together with two of his student friends.
Fish and Chips on Campus, based at the Nelson Mandela University in Port Elizabeth, is a 100% student-owned fast food restaurant and was found after two of the eateries on campus were closed down. Being students themselves, they knew well enough what food students wanted and decided to tackle the gap in the market.
Sinelile is one of 12 small business owners who received a cash injection and marketing support valued at over R70 000 as part of Shoprite’s Hustle competition. The competition calls on small business owners with an annual turnover of less that R1 million and who want to grow their business to enter.
A total of 36 winners (12 per month) will be selected and entries are open until 22 September 2018. To enter, simply visit https://hustle.shoprite.co.za/.
In growing their business, the three friends hope to secure premises from where they can operate. “We also dream of our business becoming a student owned franchise where students can buy into it and spread it to their own campuses across South Africa,” said Sinelile.
