The Hollywood Foundation Team was proud to transform the overall functioning of Ultimate Grill and Confectionary, a business based in Vaal that is known for their delicious pastries and fast food items. The Enterprise and Supplier Development Team was on hand to present the business with catering equipment and a branded container, which will enable the business to continue making more food items that reach more customers across the region.
Jabulani Tshabalala, one of the Owners of Ultimate Grill and Confectionery, opened up about the many challenges that the business has faced, including being impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and lockdown in 2020. The many restrictions and measures caused the business to shut down and lose money. The business has a goal to be one of the most successful fast food outlets in South Africa, as well as serving high-quality food at a great value. The business also has the aim to launch monthly soup kitchens in the community of Sebokeng. Jabulani explained that the contribution from the Hollywood Foundation came at the right time, and it will help the business to move towards attaining all of their goals. To thank the Hollywood Foundation, Jabulani also presented the Team with a customised purple cake.
