Kyle Zagrodzkys’ sincere passion for what he does made me smile in recognition of traits that I am always searching for in a leader, which is a love for people that is drastically enhanced by the positive multiplication factor of having the heart of a servant.

The climate of the interview was one of tangible enthusiasm as the author witnessed a serial entrepreneur at the cusp of global expansion, share his thoughts on his company with refreshing transparency.

The CEO and founder of OsteoStrong speaks with a sense of awe, visible in his eyes, of his business relationship with Tony Robbins and his mission to change lives through this innovative franchise system.

Yes, you read correctly, the iconic performance coach and entrepreneur Tony Robbins who authored Awaken the Giant Within and recently Money Master the Game: 7 Simple steps to financial freedom, is a very enthusiastic and committed advocate for OsteoStrong and Kyles’ business partner. Sincerely and truthfully sharing the same value system is often the rock on which sustainable, successful and world-famous business partnerships are built.

The franchise system OsteoStrong, is the collateral beauty emanating from Kyles’ most highly regarded value of giving to others and is set to become a global phenomenon within the next couple of years.

OsteoStrongs’ patent-pending robotic technology is based upon the research of Dr. John Jaquish, PhD who’s journey in life sciences started when his mother told him that she was diagnosed with osteoporosis. He invented a device that’s purpose is to trigger the effects of high impact loading without the risk of injury. The result of a once-weekly treatment utilising this device is over 14% gains in bone density in both the spine and hip over a just 6 months!

The reader, at first glance might have the same impression as the authors initial paradigm of this systems’ value offering, that is simply put, that OsteoStrong is the most effective cure purely for those at an advanced age with the focus of combatting or preventing osteoporosis.

The above assertion is however a dramatic deviation from the whole truth. Although this system is proving itself to be the most advanced and effective cure for osteoporosis, any athlete engaged in any discipline and of any age can receive a vast range of performance enhancing benefits from this innovative system.

When you increase your skeletal strength, it dramatically impacts your total strength output. As an example, during a four-year case study that engaged 500 subjects, the average strength gains were increased by a whopping 290%. These results were achieved through a total of 1 session per week at seven minutes per session.

The author was amazed to learn from Kyle first-hand that the awe-inspiring and very typical results are achieved with virtually no effort on the clients’ part. Your total commitment as a client is to go to a facility once a week for seven minutes, engage in four extremely safe “trigger events” (high impact loading) dressed as you are to receive a plethora of benefits over time.

It is common for clients to see a rapid and vast improvement in speed, agility, and balance. Clients also in general report that general niggles such as shoulder, lower back and knee pain disappear. A compound effect of the combination of all the benefits mentioned is a much-improved general sense of wellbeing.

OsteoStrong does not compete with anyone in the gym or wellness industry. Instead, its highly unique value proposition compliments the offering of all businesses related to fitness and health.

This cutting-edge innovation is a franchise system, a business, yet more importantly it is exploding as a global movement of positive change. Commitments for the development of over seven hundred and fifty franchises have been signed and the franchise management team is working overtime to keep up with the amount of franchise enquiries. They do keep up though, as their commitment to positively affect as many lives as they can, is unshakeable.

As the author was about to end the interview with Kyle he recognised a certain peaceful look on this business leaders’ face that can only be derived from a sense of knowing that he is changing lives and making a difference through sincere giving. We are all heartily invited to take part in this movement of positive change that is OsteoStrong, and for the sake of our own general wellbeing we should not turn down the invitation.

What is the biggest contributor to Spur’s success?

Since the beginning, we’ve made an unwavering commitment to run restaurants that are operated by entrepreneurially-minded owners who put the customer first. Customer satisfaction is one of Spur Corporation’s most important value drivers, we partner with people who ensure we retain and grow a loyal customer base. We seek to work with franchisees who take pride in the training of their staff and prepare food with passion.

This mindset has been alive for over 50 years in our staff and franchisees.

Please share some of the challenges Spur encounters as a franchisor?

We have a sizable franchise network and a big priority is to ensure that we meet customers’ expectations in every single franchise they visit. Another challenge is finding the best franchisees to partner with, people who are aligned with our company values and customer orientation.

In terms of growth, it is sometimes challenging to find the correct locations per brand and to ensure the rental is at a level where it’s sustainable for the franchisee. The management of our marketing communication to ensure we remain relevant and distinctive in an ever changing landscape can also be a challenge.

Name a few of the qualities you look for when selecting franchisees?

Our business was built on a highly focused customer orientation and centred on a love for food. Our franchisees need to be focused on the customer: Pleasing the customer, meeting the customers’ needs and being willing to spend large amounts of time in growing a business that essentially is the hospitality industry and is really about people. Our franchisees are people who have an appreciation for, and love, food as well as serving their local community over and above their product.

Why is Spur a solid investment for entrepreneurs seeking to pursue franchising?

We’ve invested greatly in growing our brand over a long period of time. Spur was founded by our Executive Chairman Allen Ambor in the spirit of entrepreneurship. Over the past 51 years, we’ve built a track-record of comprehensive operational, finance, marketing, IT, training, procurement, distribution and development support. Our marketing approach grows sustainable brands in a considered and well researched manner.

Our customer scope is broad, so while our main brands are focused on the wider South African market, we also have niche brands. This track record reassures the franchisee and broader market about Spur Corporation’s credibility.

What kind of support can a franchisee expect when joining Spur?

Franchisees can tap into expertise that’s been built up over five decades. We provide franchisees with the most effective tools to help manage and sustain their businesses successfully. Our operational support is wide-reaching and includes access to procurement, development, logistical as well as IT support. Skills development is one of the most important ways in which Spur Corporation supports its franchisees to run successful businesses.

Marketing support enables franchisees to actively identify opportunities and get assistance in developing and implementing bespoke marketing plans for each restaurant. Most importantly, when a franchisee joins Spur Group he or she gets access to cutting-edge management know-how from an experienced team of people who are passionate about our business.

Nando’s Is Firing Up The East

Carlos Duarte has been part of the Nando’s brand since inception. When his brother Fernando co-founded the flamed grilled chicken brand in 1987, Carlos soon participated in its success and today owns four highly successful franchises in Johannesburg — three in the east and one in the south. Here’s how it all began.

Vital Stats

  • Player: Carlos Duarte
  • Franchise: Nando’s
  • Position: Franchisee
  • Visit: www.nandos.co.za

What were you doing before becoming a franchisee?

I was in the audio visual technology field, as an employee. Then I joined Nando’s as an assistant manager in the Savoy and Rosettenville corporate stores. Franchising was my first experience of entrepreneurship.

Why did you decide to become a franchisee?

When my brother, Fernando Duarte, launched Nando’s in 1987, I noticed its quick growth and wanted in on the action. Being assistant store manager prepared me for when the opportunity to run my own store came along soon after.

What prompted you to partner with Nando’s?

I joined Nando’s in 1991 as a joint venture partner. At the time, Nando’s hadn’t yet franchised its operations, and the JV partnership meant the brand owned 51% of the business, while I owned 49%. My first franchise store was in Edenglen in 2001.

Describe some of the challenges of running not one, but four franchise locations

At the Edenglen store, we initially battled with sales and getting feet into the store. To be honest, I think the area was overtraded at the time, so it wasn’t the best location. Since acquiring the store in Lambton, Germiston, another in Greenstone and a third in Comaro, I’ve learnt to be cleverer in how I do things — and how I handle some of the same challenges — and learn every day from the brand itself.

Name some of the benefits you’ve experienced as a Nando’s franchisee

Nando’s is 31 years old this year. We’re in 30-odd countries worldwide with thousands of stores across the globe. As franchisees, we leverage off the dynamism of an operational business that’s known for its marketing — customers talk about our ads and they love our food.

What kind of support do you receive from Nando’s as a multi-unit franchisee?

Besides the popular marketing campaigns that attract customers, Nando’s has an extensive training manual along with a skills development training consultant who comes to the store for two days to help staff understand and implement it. The training is really effective — it has to be as this industry involves a very high turnover of staff and new skills need to be taught often.

Why is it important for a franchisee to have a good banking partner?

As a franchisee, your bank should understand your business — from operating costs, to overdraft needs and revamping expenses — so it has cash available for loans that can be approved quickly, with minimal hassle. On the technical side, a reliable mPOS device is imperative, especially for us, because 30% of our sales volumes are from home and office deliveries. It’s a fundamental method of payment every bank should provide its customers of a similar nature.


What advice do you have for budding franchisees on seeking out a good franchise brand and banking partner for their business?

  • Do your research to ensure you’re partnering with a brand that is established, well-known and expect to pay a fair price for that franchise.
  • Be aware of how the franchise brand is perceived in the market and what location opportunities are available to you as a franchisee.
  • Choose a banking facility that always has the funds available to grow your business.
  • Ensure the bank understands the brand’s business model and where you’re falling short.
