The student entrepreneur founded Fish and Chips on Campus at the Nelson Mandela University earlier this year together with two of his student friends.

The business is a 100% student-owned fast-food restaurant and was founded 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.
