OBC Chicken and Meat

FASA Member
Yesterday, today and tomorrow
It is said that the first rule of business success is, ‘Find a need and fill it’. That is precisely what the founders of OBC Chicken did when they launched the OBC brand in 1987. With their range of basic but essential food offerings including fresh and frozen chicken portions, fish, red and processed meats, OBC addresses the low to mid-income sector’s demand for low cost proteins.

Today OBC Chicken and Meat is an established and recognised brand and one of the fastest-growing retail chains in South Africa. With a foot print covering eight provinces the further development of the brand is supported by continuous brand consistency and extensive advertising and promotional activity.
The concept under the spotlight
The South African growth in economy is largely related to the growth in the emerging market. Through careful product selection and placement, OBC is increasingly poised to benefit from this reality. By meeting the needs of its target market OBC Chicken has become one of the fastest growing retail chains in South Africa. The OBC Chicken and Meat brand identity is underscored by the strong brand imagery of red, orange and yellow with the now familiar chicken logo. The image of stores are continually upgraded, refreshed and refined with modernized store fronts, layouts and merchandising techniques.

While famous for their range of fresh and frozen chicken and chicken related products, the OBC offering includes a wide range of quality essential proteins and basic food stuffs.
With their offering of quality essential proteins and basic food stuffs OBC is conveniently positioned to serve the mid-income markets identified as its primary target market.

It was with deliberate forethought then that OBC stores where positioned in close proximity to the public transport depots and taxi ranks that serve transport needs of their target market. A typical OBC outlet occupies anything from 400 to 600sqm. Each site is subjected to an extensive evaluation examining its population demographics, accessibility and projected income viability.

Driven and managed by the central buying division, OBC Chicken and Meat offers franchisees the benefits of its bulk buying power. Stock is purchased in bulk, warehoused centrally and delivered to stores in a quick and efficient manner.

Brand awareness is maintained through a continuous and aggressive advertising campaign employing national print media, point-of-sale promotions, vehicle branding, in-store product demonstrations and television advertising.
