TWO guys - Craig Mackenzie and Andrew Harvey - looked like your-run-of-the-mill students, you know, the T-shirt and jeans type, but what set them apart was their need to shake things up, to do something awesome, and to try something new.

Add a love of good pizza and some truly South African out-of-the-box thinking, and what do you get - the first Debonairs Pizza, of course.

They started small, operating from inside the Lane Spar bakery in Pietermaritzburg, but these two had big dreams, bigger ambitions and less than R6 000 between them. This was enough to turn their wild dream into one of South Africa’s best fast-food outlets.

We now have over 500 restaurants in South Africa and abroad serving more than 2.4 million pizzas a month. That’s right, more than 29.1 million moments made better with amazing pizza every year. Now you can try something made just for you. Because we specialise in pizza made for pizza lovers by pizza lovers – it’s that simple. Every innovation, each special or new menu item keeps this important fact, front and centre. We make pizza for the people.

When you said you wanted something hot and fresh we gave you the hot or not sticker. You said you wanted something convenient - we gave you online and mobile ordering. When you said you wanted something filling – we gave you the famous, filling Triple-Decker®.

And when you said you wanted to do something good – we said we’ll Doughnate, because we don’t only make pizza that tastes good, we make pizza that does good too. What does that mean? Well, for every pizza­ we make, we collect the remaining dough off-cuts and bake them into pizza flat breads, which then gets Doughnated to local charities. So, every pizza you order doesn’t just feed you, it feeds those less fortunate too.

So, try something unique.

Try something tasty.

Try something fresh

Try something amazing. Try Debonairs.

You said you wanted something convenient - we gave you online and mobile ordering. When you said you wanted something filling – we gave you the famous, filling Triple-Decker®
