The Galito’s story began in the Mpumulanga city of Nelspruit in South Africa, when Louis Germishuys opened the first store in 1996. With a powerful combination of great tasting chicken, excellent service and pride, Galito’s was a huge success. Within a few short years Galito’s had become a Lowveld favourite. Through the valued participation of close friends, Galitos had opened a closely-knit family of 8 stores by 2002.
In 2003, Galitos decided to share its unique flavours with the rest of South Africa. It was from this point that the Galitos franchising efforts took-off in earnest. Galitos has since opened to huge acclaim in Gauteng, Pretoria, Kwa-Zulu Natal and Limpopo, with a total representation of 54 stores by the close of 2008.
In 2006, Galitos boldly spread its wings into Africa, successfully opening stores in Kenya, Ghana and Senegal. The marked success of these stores generated a large amount interest, promising great potential for growth in these regions.   Added on April 6, 2011
