With Miles Kubheka, it’s all about dreaming “beeg”. This savvy entrepreneur owns Vuyo’s, the only fast casual South African cuisine restaurant franchise in South Africa. Miles was inspired by a fictional character from a Hansa Pilsenser TV commercial, which told the story of Vuyo, “the beeg, beeg dreamer”. This character Vuyo, who started off selling fast food from mobile vending units, ended up becoming a world famous yacht owner. 

After watching these commercials, Miles had what you would call an “aha moment”. He realized that this had the potential to be a very successful business model, and he sought out creating Vuyo’s restaurant himself. It really is a case of life imitating art! In addition to providing the public with delicious, South African-inspired cuisine, Vuyo’s provides aspiring entrepreneurs with the opportunity to empower themselves by owning their own Vuyo’s mobile vending unit.

The Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship has guided Miles greatly – he’s focused on his strategy and has been introduced to influential business leaders and mentors. From here, the only way for Miles is up – on to beeger and better things.
