Fournos Bakery is South Africa’s most loved local bakery, according to the Santam ‘Most Loved Local’ survey, a five-step research project that set out to celebrate South African businesses that are ‘getting it right’. This accolade adds to Fournos’ already substantial collection of accolades, including being voted the Best Bakery and Deli by the Best of Joburg Readers’ Choice Awards for 21 years running.

‘Fournos is an institution that’s synonymous with food-laden satisfaction, prepared fresh and enjoyed daily’, the report found, with patrons snapping up its freshly baked goods, health foods and smoothies, gelato, and other tasty treats from its 22 outlets in Johannesburg and Pretoria.

“I’m both excited and humbled that Fournos has been voted South Africa’s Most Loved Local Bakery,” says Michael Kalogirou, director of the Fournos Group (Pty) Ltd. “This award is particularly meaningful because it’s our customers that have voted for us, and it’s a great validation of the efforts that all our stores put into being each community’s favourite bakery and casual dining experience.”

With its ‘most loved’ reputation built on its fresh daily bakes of breads, croissants and confectionary since 1989, Fournos’ restaurants are also a very popular choice for breakfast and lunch dining. It’s extensive menu offers something for everyone – from meat-lovers to vegans – and its buffets are particularly popular among patrons who love the fun of building their own meal.

Its expansion into catering for homes and businesses has made Fournos the first choice of businesses and party planners who know they can trust its prompt delivery and fresh food, while its catering services are the best-kept secret among hosts and hostesses across both cities that choose Fournos’ food to impress their guests.  

The Santam ‘Most Loved Local’ survey, was conducted in collaboration with leading mark researcher, World Wide Worx. The survey metrics included organic search, trend analysis, keyword volume analysis, social listening and traditional research among 2,489 respondents across South Africa.
