The award comes barely a fortnight after the Chicken Slice director scooped the Customer Service Excellence award held under the auspices of the Zimbabwe Institute of Management (ZIM) in Bulawayo.
The two awards also come at a time when Chicken Slice has embarked on an expansion drive that would see every suburb in Harare having at least one branch within the next five years. Mutyebere said the company was working on feasibility studies to embark on the projects as it aims to increase its market share. Chicken Slice operates three branches, two in Harare and one in Mvuma.“We have been in the business for the past three years now and we believe we are poised for a massive growth trajectory,” said Mutyebere. “The business has the capacity to achieve that (growth) in a short space of time. we thrive on quality and that is what we have been concentrating on all along.”The company brands comprise Chicken Slice, Creamy Slice, Pizza Slice and Slice Express. “We are very sensitive about the standards of our services, which is the main reason why we have taken a back seat in as far as expansion is concerned,” said Mutyebere.
“Now that we are stable and the business is viable we can now focus on growth.” A number of small-scale businesses in the country have been operating at low capacity levels owing to liquidity-induced challenges.
However, the fast-food business has taken the young and feisty market by storm.
