We deliver Retail Solutions that respond to every aspect of what makes retail successful. Our expertise extends from large-scale food production to store development, project management, procurement, distribution, brand development, marketing, IT systems and training. If we are not implementing these for our own stores – then we're providing insights and advice to other retailers as consulting partners.


Retsol International – originally founded as food franchise business has, since inception in 2002, established a network of more than 500 franchise stores across southern Africa (Botswana, Mauritius, Mozambique, Namibia, Reunion, South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe).

The core of our retail footprint exists within the forecourt convenience market but with stores trading as standalone corporate stores and as store-in-store models within supermarket outlets – we are well versed in several retail formats. From prepared foods to FMCG retail – we understand the nuances and core competencies that are required to drive sales and customer affinity.



We continually invest in food production either in our own central food production facilities or with selected partner manufacturers. Our product assortment and recipes are globally inspired and locally always relevant in each region in which we operate. This ensures that we control both the quality and range appropriateness.



From location surveys to conceptualisation to construction – we are there every step of the way.


Our methodology is a proven recipe for success. ​With more than a decade of experience in designing, building and opening retail stores, our team of experts are equipped to create and deliver turn-key solutions that meet individual market requirements.



We invest our hearts and souls into creating and managing our brands so that our stores and products gain and sustain resonance with consumers. 

Our brands represent our quality assurance and are the symbol of trust that our customers look for and advocate on our behalf. Brand health is at the core of our business strategy and future plans.
