AFTER 22 years of constant growth and success in the hospitality industry, and 15 years in Walmer Park, the owners of St Elmo’s Woodfired Pizzeria have decided to step out of the franchise industry to create their own unique brand and franchise called San Fernando’s Grillhouse & Woodfired Pizzeria.

Fernando and Magda Escola have come a long way since they began their journey in Port Elizabeth in 1994 and they are ready to put their expertise and experience gained over the past years through hard work, commitment and loyalty to good use with San Fernando’s.

Our story

This new and exciting venture, combining fine quality food with a new bright and relaxing atmosphere, will still focus on our outstanding customer service and quality of the food that we offer.

On this, we will not negotiate!

We are passionate about providing a world-class experience to our valued customers and community by delivering a premium, quality product at an affordable price, while still delivering a memorable dining experience for the entire family.

The vision of San Fernando’s Grillhouse & Woodfired Pizzeria is to be the first choice for customers to enjoy dining on the best meals, including ordering takeout and delivery, in Port Elizabeth.

Our food and service

We, at San Fernando’s Grillhouse & Woodfired Pizzeria, seek to ensure the authentic and preferred customer taste of South Africa.

We constantly work to achieve complete customer satisfaction and to improve our offering by subjecting our operations to independent quality controls.

The main factor differentiating us from our competitors is that pizzas are prepared in traditional wood-burning ovens and we use only top-quality ingredients.

There are also some closely guarded secrets that we have created over the years that the competition has never quite been able to pinpoint.

With these and other developments, we have added to the successful recipe of our business.

We are excited for you and your family to come and join us and explore our brand-new store and we invite you to become acquainted with our exciting new brand and become part of our family.

To all our existing clients, we thank you for joining us on the next exciting part of our journey and we look forward to many more years of great success and quality dining experiences at San Fernando’s Grillhouse & Woodfired Pizzeria.
