THE 24-hour KWIKSPAR in Hayfields is popular for its famous Kwagga burger, which has been around for over 20 years.

KWIKSPAR owner and founder Keith Wimble and his partner Fred Rasher, built the store from humble beginnings as a 30-square metre shop into what it is today.

Wimble says that the Kwagga burger is by far the best selling item on the outlet’s menu.

Made with a 100g beef patty, mushrooms, egg, bacon, cheese, garnish and special Kwagga sauce, the burger is the best selling item with bread rolls being the only item that outsell it.

KWIKSPAR also offers a chicken option and substitute meat depending on dietary requirements.

Wimble said that in 1987 Trek petroleum company, which was since bought by Engen, opened the garage in the area which was previously nothing but bush.

Rasher, in his efforts to supply people with a substantial meal on a budget, developed the Kwagga by experimenting with a variety of flavours and ingredients and eventually identifying the perfect winning combination.

“We identified back then that all people wanted was a stop-and-go shop for convenience. People initially thought that we were crazy to start a 24-hour store, but we’ve never looked back and have done very well,” said Wimble.

The KWIKSPAR deli caters for the various needs of the growing and evolving community it serves.

“We encourage the staff to cook what they think people in their community will like, so you will find a lot of speciality dishes. We keep trying different things until we come up with a winning dish. We’ve realised that evolving to serve the needs of the community is good for business,” said Wimble
