Many years ago, in the early stages of the Coffee Shop in Main Street (Govan Mbeki) we stumbled upon a cloud with a silver lining.

Freddie Shoultz, partner and director of Bojangles has had a long association with General Motors South Africa before starting the business in Main Street with Billy Borbidge. Billy, before starting this business was in the retail business as a manager of retail outlets. GMSA was looking for someone to make up Christmas Hampers for pensioners and their own employees. Bojangles took on the contract organised and put the hampers together and delivered them perfectly packaged and on time to GMSA.

Bojangles has built up a close association and excellent rapport with Company Secretaries and PR's as they, generally speaking are the people responsible for the organisation and logistical planning of most events.

In early days of Bojangles' history we can honestly say that ABSA stands as one of our best, most supportive and long-standing clients. Naturally, most of our clients are extremely supportive, for which we are truly grateful, but ABSA has stood by us from the outset.

The Bojangles Partnership consists of Freddie Schoultz, who handles all the finances, and Billy Borbidge who handles purchases, staff and customer liaison. Another director of the company, Natalie De Lange, handles everything from quotes to function co-ordination. Natalie has proved to be a marvellous asset to Bojangles and anyone who has dealings with her can testify to that.
