In 1967, Wimpy first opened its doors in South Africa. Today, it’s a leader in the casual dining restaurant sector and one of the largest and most successful restaurant franchises in the country. The brand is renowned not only for its Famous Wimpy Coffee, all-day breakfasts and Wimpy burgers but also for treating South Africans to a wide selection of grills, salads, shakes and desserts.

Wimpy is SA's best-loved and largest sit-down restaurant franchise.

Having steadily grown in recognition and footprint since opening, Wimpy is a much loved South African household name. In addition to high streets and malls, Wimpy is also represented on the forecourts of Engen petroleum service stations along the country’s major transit routes, where stopping off at a Wimpy to refuel is considered a national tradition.
