Get the latest deals and specials from one of South Africa’s fasting growing fast food chains, Hungry Lion.

Hungry Lion was launched in 1997 by retail giant Shoprite to compete with international fast food chain stores such as Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC), McDonalds and local favourites such as Steers and Wimpy. The brand uniquely owns all its stores, which gives it a distinct financial advantage over its franchised counterparts. Hungry Lion also benefits from the vast wealth of its founding company Shoprite, utilizing its distribution networks, suppliers and capital to quickly expand its footprint.

Hungry Lion operates from South Africa, Namibia, Lesotho, Swaziland, Botswana, Zambia and Angola at present. With over 180 branches spread over the Southern part of Africa, its intentions are clearly aimed at dominating the fast food sector in the region.

The brand is also well known for its marketing efforts, utilizing new platforms to grow their customer base. This together with a rebrand, moving it away from its Shoprite shadow has allowed it to become a standout competitor in a tough market.

Hungry Lion’s Pride Bucket remains its key product combined with a standard menu expected from a chicken fast food store. Its advantage lies in competitive pricing by leveraging its relationship with Shoprite. Stores are typically located in areas with heavy foot traffic luring passers-by with their iconic colour scheme and branding.

Hungry Lion’s marketing strategy has enabled them to generate well over 700 000 digital voucher codes in one of their successful campaigns.
