Small business winners

The Daily Buzz wins award


Chris and Andrew Brown, founders of upmarket workplace coffee bar chain, The Daily Buzz, were category winners in the recent 2013 Small Business Entrepreneur of the Year® title in the annual Sanlam/Business Partners Entrepreneur of the Year ® Competition.

This year’s entry saw some stiff competition for the 2013 Small Business Entrepreneur of the Year®, which celebrates entrepreneurs who, irrespective of the duration the business has been active, have posted a business turnover of R20 million or less in the 2012 tax year. The Daily Buzz won in the Small Business category and the competition was won overall by Tommy Makhatho of Bibi Cash and Carry.

Andrew Brown says, “It is a great honour to have won our category in the Small Business Entrepreneur of the Year Award. Since opening our first coffee bar in the Standard Bank headquarters in Johannesburg, we have grown the brand to seven outlets that provide the ultimate in-house coffee experience to a number of blue chip corporates. We intend to expand as rapidly as possible into new corporate sites in the future and recently opened our seventh outlet in the newly built Standard Bank building in Rosebank.”

The brothers attribute their entrepreneurial success to a number of factors. One of these is their ongoing people development, allowing employees to attend regular training programmes that offer life skills as well as training in matters relating to coffee. Chris Brown believes the service that The Daily Buzz offers is the key differentiator between themselves and competitors, as quality coffee can be sourced by many suppliers, but few are able to supply exceptional service and product expertise.
