About Us

The first Skippers store opened its doors in 1994 in Commercial Road Pietermaritzburg, the store still open today and remains our flagship Skippers store. Our Skippers franchise caters for seafood lovers who enjoy fish & chips prepared the traditional British way, right down to the “newsprint” packaging, mushy peas & mash. Our objective is not only to serve value for money line products, such as hake & chips, but also to make more exotic seafood available, such as prawns, calamari and seafood curries.

Our utmost importance is in keeping with the Mochachos tradition Skippers portions, which are larger than our competitors and are therefore greater value for money. Skipper’s outlets come in two designs, namely Take Away or Sit Down.

Skippers is part of the Mochachos Franchise Management Group which includes MochachosCafé Bacini’sBacini’s Pizzeria,Bacini’s Express and Max Frango’s.
