BUSINESS success comes with patience and dedication.

Manuel Savic, an entrepreneur, saw the need for a quality steakhouse in KZN.

After acquiring the rights to Butcher Block, he relaunched the brand to target upmarket customers.

With Robynne Savic, Manuel set up Butcher Block in Umhlanga Rocks and later in Rosebank, as part of the Holiday Inn hotel chain, where they have been for the past seven years.

Butcher Block has since grown into a highly respected steakhouse restaurant.

Following their re-launched restaurants opening their doors in KZN and Joburg, the brand has since grown into a popular steakhouse restaurant.

The last year has been a year of development success for the company. They entered into a strategic partnership with Jay Ramnundlall, a well-known businessman in the education and property sector.

After rebuilding Butcher Block as a franchise brand, some of Butcher Block’s restaurants have become independent.

Jay, who shares the same vision as Manuel, saw growth of the Butcher Block brand as testament to the brand’s strength.

Jay said the secret to their success was their unwillingness to compromise on quality and service delivery. Butcher Block restaurants pride themselves on serving the best steaks in the country – which is why their slogan is “a cut above the rest”.

The menu is designed to suit anyone with dishes that include shellfish, fish, lamb, and their famous steaks and chops with flair, class and elegance. Sides and starches are added to create complete meals for diners at affordable prices.

Robynne said “We guarantee only the finest quality steaks, cooked to perfection, every time.”
