NATIONAL WINNER – Z CREATIONS

The business idea was initiated when I tried to sell off excess stock of hammocks (that I designed and produced in my spare time while working in the family business) to a furniture store. The store had no interest in the hammocks, but inquired if I could make upholstered headboards as there was a demand for it. The business referred a customer to me and she wanted to see the pics of the work I had done, which at the time was only the hammocks. Read more

WESTERN CAPE WINNER – MAMERE

My first premises was in the Salt Circle Arcade, it was basically a production kitchen with a front desk. Back then, I mainly cooked for the catering industry and sold my goodies at The Old Biscuit Mill Market on Saturday mornings. After two years in that space, my lease was coming to an end. It was perfect timing – I knew that if I wanted my brand to grow, I needed to find a space with more foot traffic. I spoke with The Old Biscuit Mill and asked them if they had any spaces available. That afternoon I got a phone call back to say that a tenant had just cancelled their lease. I took the space and have never looked back since then. Read more
