South African Home Foods is a family-owned South African Specialty Store in Gold Coast, Queensland.
We pride ourselves in offering the biggest range of South African foods, products and gifts on the Coast, providing South Africans with products that they miss and enjoy from 'home'.
The store opened in June 2017 and has been owned and run by our family, the Stoltz family, since September 2021.
Our family immigrated to Australia in January 2019. It was the right decision for us, we love living in our new beautiful country, we truly feel blessed to be here. Wez, who runs and manages our store on a daily basis, worked in a large corporate 'big 4' bank in South Africa for 17 years prior to immigrating. The move to Australia forced us to reassess our life goals and leave the grind of the fast-paced corporate world. Wez set out to follow in the rest of his family’s footsteps and become a business owner. We immigrated to Australia to provide our children with a better future, but at the same time we still love our home country and therefore there will always be a longing in our hearts for our 'home' country. We have found great comfort in running a business that allows us to interact daily with other like-minded South Africans and brings South Africans the comforts of their favourite 'home foods'.
Wez loves to hear everyone's story on how and why they made their decisions to immigrate here. He is passionate about the people he serves and gets great satisfaction out of seeing the joy on people’s faces when they discover he has some of their favourites in stock!
We want South Africans and Australians to feel welcome in our store. We want to get to know our customers and want our customers to know that they are buying from a business that cares about them.
