ABOUT USBreaking most of the rules is a recipe which has seen few flops for the brothers Andre and Chris Castelein. “We started the business in 1991, we had done no market survey, there was no profit projections, we had no advertising budget and our father told us the shop was in the wrong place”.What the brothers did have was an understanding of the business, both having worked in the fast food industry for some time, and a eye for opportunity.The name “CASSIE’S” comes from the common nick-name for the six brothersin the family.On November 21 1991 the first store opened for business at 52 Sutton road, Sidwell with nothing more than a banner draped outside. “We didn’t do flyers or advertising because we did not have the money. We just opened the doors”. Day one saw a turnover of R220.We now provide pies, hamburgers, meals, sandwiches and platters with stores in PE and Despatch.
