Brand Overview

 

Several supermarkets acquired by the Group between 1995 and 2011 were integrated in the OK Franchise Division. These acquisitions include Sentra, acquired in 1995; OK Bazaars acquired in 1997; and Metcash, acquired in 2011. The Group’s expertise and infrastructure, coupled with the OK brand’s potential, gave rise to this division that manages 477 stores in South Africa, Namibia and Eswatini (previously Swaziland).

The OK Franchise Division franchises different retail formats (OK Foods, OK Grocer, OK MiniMark, OK Express and Sentra), a liquor outlet (OK Liquor) and a wholesale outlet (Megasave). Each store has its own identity and offers shopping facilities appropriate to its trading market, but customers will find a wide range of fresh and non-perishable food items, as well as general merchandise in most stores. 

OK Franchise Division’s wide geographic reach allows for expansion in metropolitan, rural and remote areas.
