Penford Convenience Centre is an ultimate one-stop in Uitenhage.

Convenient it is indeed, with most of the popular fast food franchise brands under one roof. This has been a haven for many a tired traveller, a relief for many hungry tummies who craved for a Steers burger, pizza, fish or something fresh from the bakery. And a quick stop for a quick shop at the Woolworths outlet.

At the courtyard there are eager Engen petrol attendees, working around the clock to keep the wheels on the go.

Penford Convenience Centre is owned by entrepreneur, citrus farmer and keen golfer Gerrit Meyer, who enjoy business keeping it simple: one way and that is the right way, by offering quality products in a pristine environment with dedicated staff to serve the public with a smile.

That is why Penford Convenience Centre has scooped most of the regional, provincial and national prizes during the past 21 years.

“A huge thank you to all who stop at our fuel pumps or who pop-in at the fast food court to enjoy whatever they want. It was an absolute pleasure to serve the public the past 21 years.
