About a year ago, the two custodians of the Reworks business started their first shop purely by accident. Not in a garage, like most stories normally start, but in vacated premises in the Zevenwacht Mall located in the Kuilsriver area.
Both partners came with a wealth of hospitality industry experience, having worked both in big restaurant chains while also developing unique (and highly successful) restaurant concepts that are still going strong to this day.
But as long time school friends with a shared love for great food, Francois & Gert always wanted to start a joint venture. Something fresh. Something different…
rework (3rd person present: reworks) - to make changes to (something), especially in order to make it more up to date
And so Reworks Ribs & Burgers was born! With the DNA of the Reworks brand strongly entrenched in the fresh fast food segment, the first store opened in Zevenwacht Mall on the 13th of December 2016.
The store was an immediate success. Our Reworks ribs, burgers, wings, combo meals and family deals were a instant hit and the positive feedback kept flowing in. So much so that we received numerous enquiries to open further stores.
After settling in to our new Zewenwacht Mall home, we decided to trade mark & register the brand along with all the associated copyrights. This paved the way for further expansions and franchise options to build on the Reworks Ribs & Burgers name.
For now our focus will be on the Western Cape , but once we reach critical mass, we hope to conquer the rest of South Africa too.
In October this year we opened our 2nd store within the new Table Bay Mall on the R27, and from there? Well, let’s just say we’re looking forward to seeing what the future holds.
