The OK Franchise Division franchises three different types of retail formats (OK Foods, OK MiniMark & OK Express), a liquor outlet (OK Liquor) and a wholesale outlet (Megasave).
Each of these stores has its own identity and personality and offer shopping facilities appropriate to the market in which they trade. This includes a wide range of fresh and non-perishable food items, as well as general merchandise. The OK Franchise continuously strives to cement the brand as a retailer that can be counted on and today they have 418 stores in neighbourhoods and communities across South Africa, Namibia and Swaziland.
The Shoprite Group acquired a number of supermarkets between 1995 and 2011 that was integrated in the OK Franchise Division. The acquisitions included a central procurement organization, Sentra, that was acquired in 1995, OK Bazaars acquired in 1997 and Metcash in 2011. The expertise and infrastructure of the group, coupled with the inherent value and potential of the OK brand, gave rise to the OK Franchise Division that now have more than 400 stores.
