Durbanites have been made proud by a new brand of flamed grilled chicken business birthed from their own soil - Nomusa's Flamed Grilled Chicken. The soon-to-be franchise was founded by Mr Thembinkosi Mzwai Ndwandwe, who was born and bred in Inanda township in KwaZulu-Natal.
The businessman said his mother, who was a teacher by profession, would cook chicken feet and heads for him to sell at school. In an interview with ZA South Africa, he said:

"I have been involved in different businesses but in opening this restaurant, I wanted something that would be a game-changer."
It was from selling these that Ndwandwe had a desire to own a restaurant. In honouring his late mother, who passed before he launched the business, he named the restaurant after her.
According to ESA, the business already has 45 staff members based in the surrounding areas of Inanda, KwaMashu and Ntuzuma. It hasn't been long since the business opened, but it's already won the hearts of many South Africans as social media was flooded with reactions congratulating the entrepreneur.
"I am humbled, very excited, and feel like crying because of all the love I am receiving. I wish God can help me build franchises where black people will benefit too," said the entrepreneur
