Wimpy was first established in South Africa in 1967 – the first restaurant opening in Durban. Today we are recognised as leaders in the Casual Dining sector of the quick service restaurant industry having won numerous FASA and other media awards throughout the years.
Today we boast over 500 franchised restaurants, throughout Southern Africa, and a further 30 stores in Namibia, Botswana, Zambia and Mauritius with plans for continued future ventures into other African countries. Beyond Southern Africa, Wimpy has representation in the UK, having launched in London in 1954. We currently have 113 sites operating across the United Kingdom, in service areas, sports centers, Football Stadia and other Leisure venues.
