MPOPHOMENI PIZZERIA RECEIVES A TOPPING OF BUILDING MATERIALS… Local up and coming pizzeria Ekasi Pizza is truly an example of finding success against all odds.

Founded by local twin brothers Sandile and Syanda Mhlongo, the pizzeria recently opened its doors to the public and is the first food outlet of its kind in the community. With vast knowledge and experience in the food industry, especially in terms of pizza, the Mhlongo brothers believed that they could use their skills to provide the Mpophomeni community with a new taste sensation. However with limited resources they found it difficult to establish their business with regards to building their shop.

Midmar Group (Midmar Crushers) were inspired by the determination of the young business owners and were happy to contribute towards the building of their pizzeria since supporting local entrepreneurship and growing the local economy are the core goals of our company. Today Ekasi Pizza has a team of 3 full time workers and three casual employees and is a thriving business in the local community.
