On Thursday evening, 4 April, Mugg & Bean in Secunda Mall had a reopening function to introduce the new owners and some other exciting news. The theme of the night was: Deliciously Generous Evening.
Upon arrival, guests were welcomed by the new owners, Hendrie and Michelle Swanepoel, Michelle Nell, Secunda Mall Manager and Danelle van der Watt, Marketing Manager at Secunda Mall and there was an array of interesting drinks to choose from. The guestlist was filled with the who’s who of Secunda and everyone was dressed to a tee! The Mugg & Bean was made up beautifully with tables pushed together to form an L shape and black table cloths with red toile and red roses. This beautiful setup was done by Fresh Ideas.
Once everyone was seated the welcoming and opening was done by Michelle Nell. Michelle spoke about what an honour it was to welcome Hendrie and Michelle to the mall family and revealed that the Mugg & Bean would soon have a new menu to be enjoyed by all. Hendrie and Michelle were introduced by Michelle Nell and as soon as he started talking, his warm and welcoming presence commanded the attention of the room without fail. He told his audience about his past and what led up to the decision to buy the Mugg & Bean.
Hendrie and Michelle both have a history in the hotel industry. They both studied at the International Hotel School in Johannesburg and had worked in America and the United Kingdom. After 17 years abroad and three beautiful children later, they decided to return back home, make use of all their knowledge and experiences in the customer service industry and make a difference where they can.
After all the pleasantries were out of the way, it was time to eat! A tomato and basil soup served with Ciabatta croutons as a starter made everyone crave for more. The main dish: chicken schnitzel with cheese sauce, Hasselback potatoes and roasted cocktail tomatoes and onions was stunningly presented and made everyone’s mouths water. The dessert was what everyone was waiting for… a chocolate brownie with fresh cream and brandy tuile (pronounced tweel). The brownie and cream was definitely a favourite.
The evening, meal and of course the company were greatly enjoyed by all! – Ané Prinsloo
