Wakaberry, a self-service, soft-serve frozen yoghurt brand established in Durban in May 2011, will be opening a store in Cape Town on Kloof Street on the 16th of November. 

Nationally, this is their 7th store but it is their first for the Mother City. The new development is a result of enormous growth of the brand and a massive demand by franchisees and customers alike.

Funky flavours

Wakaberry creates an experience where their customers (affectionately known as Wakafans) can ‘self’ swirl their soft serve frozen yoghurt (98% fat free) and add a variety of toppings. Flavours vary from store to store but customers can expect a wide variety including classics like Strawberry, Vanilla, Mixed Berry and English Toffee and quirkier taste sensations like Condensed Milk, Cheesecake, Kiwi, Watermelon and Green Apple.


Toppings-wise, for the fit and healthy they offer fresh fruit, nuts, and cereals, and for the downright wicked there are deliciously decadent desserts such as sweets, chocolates and sauces.

Pay-per-weight system

Wakaberry was the first South African frozen yoghurt brand to offer this unique self serve concept that allows each customer to be the boss of their own creation. The affordable pricing and their pay-per-weight system means that customers can have as much or as little as they like. 

The price per 100g is R11.00 and customers weigh their dessert once they have swirled their yoghurt and added their toppings.

The name Wakaberry was born from the excitement surrounding the 2010 South African Soccer World Cup and the Shakira / Freshly Ground anthem “Waka Waka” that rocked South Africa and the rest of the world.
