The Potgieter family know how to run a successful business, offering the best to their clients and staff as well as to the community in which they operate.

As new owners of the franchise outlet, Kekkel andamp; Kraai Uitenhage, they have spent a month to transform totally the shop and employ new staff members, who share the same sentiment: “only the best is good enough for our clients”.

Kekkel andamp; Kraai Uitenhage, the only franchise shop in the Uitenhage district, offers a clean and homely environment to do your chicken shopping. The Potgieters also own the franchise shop at Heath Park in Bethelsdorp.

Esmé, a former human resources regional manager of the Adcorp Group, firmly believes in investing in staff members.

“When people are proud of their work and the products that are sold, and offered the opportunity to be part of decision-making in the industry, their business skills develop and they become passionate to deliver quality service,” said Esmé, who has a passion for people and her environment.

Kekkel andamp; Kraai franchise headquarters are in Malmesbury and fresh products are delivered from the farm to the Uitenhage outlet twice a week. Kekkel andamp; Kraai Uitenhage offers products ranging from eggs, whole chicken, chicken pieces to take-away chicken meals, hampers and various other chicken treats. Also try the Kekkel-on-the-Run take-away’s delicious grilled barbecue chicken and other meals.

Grebe Zaayman, an IT fundi, is the manager and true to his nature is constantly experimenting with new ideas of chicken combos or products to suit their clientele demand.

Kekkel andamp; Kraai currently has 10kg mixed chicken portions for R234 and chicken fillets at R54/kg, whilst a pack of 5 whole birds is R29.90/kg. Grebe said clients’ specific requirements can be made to order as clients’ satisfaction is of utmost importance to them. The prices are very competitive and the meat quality outstanding.

Hampers andamp; specials

Hamper deals vary. The all new franchise offers a variety of hampers and specials, starting from as low as R100 per hamper.

Fanie, an engineer by heart, keeps an eye on the general aspects and customer care of their Kekkel andamp; Kraai outlets. All Kekkel andamp; Kraai Uitenhage chicken products are Halaal certified. They cater for the domestic, wholesale and retail markets and do bulk deliveries on request. The team at Kekkel andamp; Kraai Uitenhage treasures the environment and is part of a recycling programme.
