As more people discover the joys of South African cuisine, so the local customer base is growing every year. Particularly popular is the biltong and boerewors and customers return again and again to sample all the different varieties on offer.

Crunch at Forest Glen is very supportive of the local community and the Eloffs regularly support functions such as the Strawberry Fest and fundraisers like All For Kids. A popular event held at the shop is the monthly Friday BBQ that gives the local South African community a chance to catch up and share their stories.

Christo has been in the supermarket business for nearly 40 years and he and Mariane have brought all their experience and knowledge to bear at Crunch. They aim to grow the variety and diversity of stock so that they continue to spread their appeal to a wider audience.
