I’d like to open the about us page with a massive Thank You to all our precious clients that have supported us since inception back in 2013. 829 Spit Braai Deliveries & 173 on-site Spit Braais – it’s been one helluva journey so far. So thank you 🙂
To the newbies: Welcome! Today is the start of something fun. Pop across to our reviews when you get a minute. Our deliciously proven lamb spit recipe, and our absolute desire to push the boundaries of #ServiceEnjoyment have made things really busy & exciting around here. We went so far as to enrol the services of a professional logistics & supply-chain expert from Oxford in England (Tim MacIntyre) in December 2014 to help us tweak, fine-tune & improve on our processes to ensure a more efficient operation behind the scenes; the benefits which will be transferred onto you.
Where did it all start?
Few people know that Spit Braai Delivery was founded by absolute chance (some have in fact called it luck). I was asked to MC a corporate end-of-year function, and the menu: a delicious Lamb spit buffet… A true South African favourite, delivered to the function already prepared, de-boned, basted & ready to eat – served straight from perfectly heated bains-marie’s (silver chafing dishes). Self service in it’s simplest form.
The idea of “Spit Braai Delivery in Cape Town” stole my heart immediately, and being a digital marketing person, I teamed up with a chef. 48 hours later we had a basic website, an incredibly delicious secret lamb spit recipe, and a R2’000 shoe-string budget for marketing. My only hope at that point was that our product & service would be somewhat appealing to the people of Kaapstad. Apparently it is…
2014 saw a number of exciting new developments. We launched our Facebook page, and our first competition became an unexpected hit reaching 70’000 people – according to Facebook. Callum Rogers (Our Grand Master of Customer Delight) joined #TeamSBD early in 2014, and when you talk to him you’ll realise why his title has such a definitive description. We also launched our first community project called #HappyTaxi & recruited the most unbelievable team of Patriots who deliver your meals with love. Our team of chefs has also grown to 4, which has naturally improved our planning & service delivery.
Our first YouTube Advert
I wanted to launch an advert with personality, so I asked a puppet to record my script. This was the end result.
Google have also kindly placed Spit Braai Delivery at the top of Google for quite a number of searches

Excuse the mouthful. Thanks for reading 🙂
Thank you Callum. Service was excellent, food was really good. Presentation good. Will definitely use you again. Only suggestion, bigger plates. Staff was left happy and satisfied.
Great service, great food, good portion sizes and very sufficient team. Would definitely use them again.
Great experience from the moment we reached out to Callum, order arrived on time, well packaged and food nice and hot, the lamb was the talk of the party and everyone could not wait to tuck in, potato salad was exceptional, salads great, the vegetable lasagne needed a little more seasoning, and the peppermint tart was slightly runny but it was polished off by all the guests! Well done team!
Needed to arrange a Spitbraai Christmas evening. I am in Australia and Callum helped me put it all together for 30+ people at a rental in Camps Bay. He responded to all my emails promptly and the delivery was on time and the gentleman who delivered set everything up for me as well. The collection the following day was punctual and once again the gentleman was professional and nothing was too much trouble. I would highly recommend Callum and his team. The food was excellent and the service was commendable.
