A fresh and grand opening of the newly bread bakery called 404 Restaurant & Bakery was on Tuesday in Ga-Nkwana
The owner of 404 Restaurant & Bakery, Diketso Lesufi who is a self-taught baker and an entrepreneur is thrilled to finally open his dream business. He stated that he also has cars that are in the transportation business.
Diketso aged 24 said he used to sell fruits and vegetables before launching the bakery idea.
“I believe so much in myself, I think that is one major reason I do not give up. I had many failed business ideas, but I keep going,” He said.
According to Diketso, education is not the only way to success, he highlighted that none of the things he succeeded in was influenced by education but passion and prayer.
“School did not work out for me and I do not see myself less motivated because I do not meet requirements of certain things, I would like to be part of. I come up with ideas and start working hard. We are a generation without any financial support that is why I encourage people to always hustle in any way they can,” said Diketso.
This focused young man said he started the bakery business because he had noticed people of his area do not have a place to purchase fresh bread. Diketso said he wants people to eat freshly baked bread every day and he promises good service.
“From now on, people from surrounding areas of Ga-Nkwana will enjoy their bread. Now they have a choice in choosing fresh bread, unlike the old days. Our bread is not only fresh but affordable, people can find us next to Shoprite Usave in Ga-Nkwana we are open from 07:00 am – 6:00 pm” He said.
Diketso is one of the people we need to give a round of applause to as his businesses employs the youth.
