Kips started in 1991
KIPS WAS A LANDMARK,THE LEGACY GOES ON…..
KIPS originally came from Kool Ice Products. A name we used to operate under in 1991. KIPS began by solely operating with Ice, Ice Lollies, Choc Sticks & Choc Nuts etc. In 1991, KIPS, a small scale ice cream parlor, operated in one location. Ice cream products lead onto full meals/fast food. Kips Restaurant started by selling three chickens a day only eight tables to accommodate customers.
Since 1991, the Giga family had embarked on a journey, transforming Kool Ice Products to Kips Restaurant and made KIPS a brand, a customer based restaurant, winning over every customer’s heart with their hard work. It slowly transformed to a larger customer base, a well-known name and now a chain of restaurants. KIPS is what it is today due to the loyal customers, without them Kips Restaurant would have never survived the tragedy faced on 17th May 2011.
The father and founder of KIPS, the main man behind the brand was taken the day the original KIPS collapsed in an unfortunate incident. Not only was the original KIPS shattered; the Giga family empire was crashed as they lost one of their family. The founder of KIPS was taken down, alongside a home of 20 years. The biggest heartbreak the Giga family faced, and every day the late Mohammed Shaffiqque Giga is missed. His unique enthusiastic optimistic, creative personality is what made KIPS what it is today 2011, a year of hopes, dreams and wishes had come a crashing down. The late Mohammed Shafiqque Giga was a humble, honest, down to earth simple man, with a vision to make KIPS not just a restaurant name, but a brand in Malawi. Today his dream, vision and goal is living on and he is no longer here to witness it, may his soul forever rest in eternal peace.
Kips Restaurant, through its journey of two decades has become an unforgettable brand, and through more time to come, with the help of our loyal customers, will only get bigger and better. Although 2011 wasn’t what was expected, it has bought KIPS Restaurant a new opportunity and blessing with the birth of a new branch KIPS Restaurant located in the heart of Blantyre. We thank all our customers for their loyalty to our brand, and ensure their LOYALTY will be treated like ROYALTY.
TASTY FOOD & EXCELLENT SERVICE SINCE 1991
