About Us

Nkukhu Box is a home of grilled chicken embracing Kasi "township" flavours and lifestyle. We bring quality food and flavours' originating from our own Kasi's, inspired by our own stories and origin.

We are a proud fast food brand born from African townships "e'Kasi", with an understanding of the township pallet and needs. Our brand aims to share our own local stories with the world.

The name "Nkukhu" is a well known name in most African languages meaning "chicken"

Nkukhu Box is a well supported grilled chicken fast food franchise brand. Our menu is developed with a clear understanding of African flavours and preferences.

We are a brand that creates and cherish food memories. We not only serve amazing, tantalising quality food, but we provide an eating experience.

With the first Nkukhu Box store launched in Mamelodi, one of many famous townships in South Africa, we plan on bringing the brand to every other Kasi.

Why Us

Nkukhu Box is founded to serve a purpose in the South African township food industry. A young entrepreneur from e'Kasi with an aim of offering high quality grilled chicken products that are on par with international standards and other big brands. Itumeleng Mpatlanyana, the founder, is a firm believer in self initiated entrepreneurship. He has a passion for good food and has been in the food business for more than 10 years.

Nkukhu Box has been created to embrace African flavours, culture, lifestyle and fashion through food. All other big brands within the fast food industry have their origin stories to tell and these are shared with the world. It is time to have our own African brand telling our own colourful stories to the world. A true South African township brand that focus on authentic Kasi taste.

Africa's townships are alive with music, fashion, art and history, as well as a wide variety of tasty dishes. It is this great combination of vibes and stories that exist and they are to be told through Nkukhu Box eating experience.

The brand is set to move to every Kasi providing high quality fast food & service that we can be proud of, as being our own fast food creation and flavours that we too can introduce to other nations throughout the world.
