ABOUT THE GUEST SPEAKER
A born and bred entrepreneur, Emil Venter fell in love with the restaurant industry while working as a waiter after he finished school. He chased this love all the way to the UK where he and his wife worked for 11 years in london restaurants followed by 4 years in Scotland as a project manager, but his heart yearned for home and the restaurant business.
Returning to Durban in 2010 he set up Stretta at The Heritage Market in Hillcrest, but his ADD need for another challenge started to itch! Armed with a killer chicken recipe and the revelation that a simple menu offering still draws a crowd, he and his friend Kevin set to some brainstorming resulting in the distinctive Afro’s brand.
Afro’s, the story of how a simple business which was born in a trailer that was hitched around to events in Durban, turned into a thriving food chain with outlets in KZN and the Western Cape. Afros is now rolling out stores around the country and serves upwards of 50 000 meals a month.
