The freshest thing without feathers
FASA Member
Yesterday, today and tomorrow
The OBC Chicken brand was established in 1987 and franchising on the concept commenced in 2000. Today OBC Chicken has a foot print that covers eight provinces, Gauteng, North West, Northern Province, Free State, Mpumalanga, Kwa-Zulu Natal and the Northern and Eastern Cape. The Eastern Cape in particular promises great potential and further expansion of the brand into the province is scheduled.

The concept under the spotlight
The OBC Chicken 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.

With their offering of quality chicken products and basic food stuffs underpinned by outstanding service and affordability, OBC Chicken primarily serves the mid income markets. While famous for their range of fresh and frozen chicken and chicken related products, other convenient and market related products such as fish, cold and processed meats, eggs and fresh meat are also available.
The growth of the South African economy is related to the growth in the emerging market. OBC Chicken, through careful product selection and placement, is poised to benefit from this. By meeting the needs of its target market OBC Chicken has become one of the fastest growing retail chains in South Africa.

A typical OBC Chicken outlet is on average 400m² to 600m². Extensive site evaluation surveys examine population demographics, position, accessibility to convenient transport and projected income viability. OBC Chicken outlets are located in areas that offer their target market easy access and convenience.
