New Place: Free Chinese Pancakes At Boerewors King
Burgers from R25 and chicken wings from R22
“My wife made me a boerewors roll and it was so delicious, I knew I had to open a boerewors roll shop,” muses Canadian Boerewors King owner, Nicholas VTroll. The woman who can be attributed with starting it all, Nicholas’ wife, Saadiqah Omar, is from Cape Town. While food is their focus, this tech-forward duo are proving that their micro-franchise goes beyond the boerie.
THE FUTURE OF MICRO-FRANCHISING
To create an efficient and sustainable micro-franchise, Boerewors King uses innovative apps, technology and futuristic software for keeping track of business operations through a smartphone.
The technology includes Yoco cloud-based POS software, EZVIZ live stream security, AndroMoney finance tracking, online marketing partners and more. These are all powered from the business owner’s smart device or computer, proving that technology can empower entrepreneurs to become business owners.
Three online delivery partners make Boerewors King a hybrid between an online platform and a traditional brick-and-mortar establishment. “By partnering with delivery companies, we gain multiple streams of revenue and great market exposure from an early stage, mitigating risk,” says Nicholas.
But back to the food. If you love boerewors and burgers, you’ll want to give a boerie burger a whirl. Boerewors King’s boerewors and coriander-spiced burger patties come from GoodHope Butchers, which the owners tout as the best in the city. Pick a flame-grilled 120g boerewors or cheese griller roll with caramelised onions, or the flame-grilled hamburger or cheeseburger with gouda for R25–R35. Add a side of chips and a drink for a total of R55. There’s also chicken wings and nuggets for R20–R25.
WHERE TO FIND THE WORS
Escape the chaos of the mall and head to Boerewors King, situated directly across from Canal Walk's food court at the Island Club Hotel building. The closest mall exit is #15 (at John Dory’s) on the upper level. The closest parking is at 201 Esplanade Road, Manhattan Building.
Once you’re at Boerewors King, you’ll find chilled outside seating, ideal for taking in the view of the canals while you munch on some flame-grilled goodness.
