The Galitos story began in the Mpumalanga City of Nelspruit, when the first Galito’s restaurant opened its doors in 1996. With a powerful combination of great tasting chicken, excellent service and pride, Galito’s soon became a huge success. Within a few short years Galito’s had become a Lowveld favourite, and with the valued participation and support of close friends, Galito’s had opened a closely-knit family of 8 restaurants by mid-2002.

During 2003 GALITOS decided to share its unique flavours with the rest of South Africa. It was at this point that the Galito’s Brand began to develop, and the franchising efforts took-off in earnest. Galito’s has since opened to huge acclaim around South Africa, opening in Gauteng, Kwa-Zulu Natal, Limpopo, Northern Province and Eastern Cape.


During 2006, Galito’s boldly spread its wings into Africa, launching extremely successful restaurants in Kenya, Ghana & Senegal. The marked success of these restaurants prompted a large amount of interest, and promised great potential for future growth throughout Africa. In 2009, Galito’s then opened its first store in Lusaka, Zambia. The immediate success of this store prompted the opening of 3 more Lusaka restaurants in relatively quick succession. These restaurants have traded exceptionally well; resulting in the recent expansion into Zambia’s neighboring country of Malawi.

Further abroad, Galito’s is excited to have opened restaurants in Canada and Senegal.

Region’s we’re focusing on

The Free State promises great potential in and around the towns and cities of Bloemfontein, Kimberly, Welkom, Klerksdorp and Potchestroom

Kwa-Zulu Natal is still wide open, with primary focus on the Durban to Pietermaritsburg regions. The Zululand region also promises some exciting rural trade which is a great part of our background.

Galito’s is the best tasting, 100% flame grilled chicken in the world, with massive flavour, down to the bone. We use only fresh, natural ingredients in our original marinade recipe and each chicken is carefully marinated for 24 hours.
