The Galito’s story began in the Mpumulanga city of Nelspruit, when Louis Germishuys opened the first store in 1996. With a powerful combination of great tasting chicken, excellent service and pride, Galito’s was a huge success. Within a few short years Galito’s had become a Lowveld favourite. Through the valued participation of close friends, Galitos had opened a closely-knit family of 8 stores by 2002.

In 2003, Galitos decided to share its unique flavours with the rest of South Africa. It was from this point that the Galitos franchising efforts took-off in earnest. Galitos has since opened to huge acclaim in Gauteng, Pretoria, Kwa-Zulu Natal and Limpopo, with a total representation of 54 stores by the close of 2008.

In 2006, Galitos boldly spread its wings into Africa, successfully opening stores in Kenya, Ghana and Senegal. The marked success of these stores generated a large amount interest, promising great potential for growth in these regions.

However retail growth in Ghana is really mediocre. I recently looked at some figures and some of the projects in the pipeline include the retail components in One Airport square and Icon House with about 2500, 2000 sqms in them.

ahhh, Africans and their simplistic view of development. Some countries just have more malls than others. In Colombia malls are more common than in Argentina but the latter is richer and more developed. The UK has more malls than France or Germany but they are similarly developed.

I think it's because of decentralization. Ghana as a whole normally doesnt seem to put everything at one place.

Although it would serve African cities like Accra better in terms of the amount of money they need to invest on bulk infrastructure (e.g. water, electricity, sewerage, gas and telecoms infrastructure) if they would focus on building skyscrapers instead of going with an urban sprawl. That said, a Washington DC type urban plan is quite nice.

having previously lived in Accra, i would recommend that the government of Ghana should look at releasing a number of land parcels around the government square to private developers who are looking to invest in skyscraper type developments. The govt owns large parcels that have 1970s style groundscrapers that serve as the government offices in a very central and strategic location of Accra.
