2K restaurant is Vivo traditional food partner in Kampala
|KAMPALA, AUGUST 22- Just as we reported in our post exactly five months ago today, Energy retailer Vivo is in advanced stages of adding a traditional food outlet to one of its fuelling stations in Kampala.
2K restaurant, the signature traditional fare restaurant based in Bukesa will shortly be opening an outlet at Shell Ben Kiwanuka, obviously targeting the moneybags in Kampala’s major business hub who will no longer have to worry about traffic before tucking into their favourite local cuisine. A double storied structure is currently under construction for the purpose.
This comes close on the heels of a Java outlet at Shell Nalufenya in Jinja where construction works are coming to a close. The outlet will be operated by Nairobi Java House
Vivo which pioneered this unprecedented model when Café Pap opened outlets at Shell’s Jinja road and Ntinda outlets last year, has seen such success that it plans to open another dozen shops this year. The partnership has since been expanded to include KFC at Shell Bukoto, and Nairobi Java House at Shell Kabalagala and Lugogo respectively.
The food outlets are a value add-on intended to help Vivo hold on to its high value customers in a crowded marketplace of 72 players.
Vivo has been expanding aggressively, opening 17 new stations between 2013 and 2015. It now operates 120 outlets and has also doubled storage capacity in Kampala to 20 million litres.
