More small-style outlets are set to follow the Somerset West launch, with Stellenbosch not forgotten. “We promise we are coming back,” says Fritz, “and we will re-open in Stellies. We are very excited about the plans we have in place.”
Also in the works is the SCHOON Manufactory – a creative space consisting of an experimental kitchen and grain-focused bakery and patisserie. This will allow Fritz and Chanelle to nurture their ideas and continue growing in the commitment to producing world-class, quality food aimed at improving customer wellbeing.
In addition, SCHOON aspires to become a platform where people can create positive change in the community through quality food production, by connecting and collaborating with local producers and re-establishing sustainable agriculture practices. Fritz adds, “We love food… the farming behind it, both the old and new methods of production, and especially the eating and enjoyment of it. Food is our calling and we have dedicated our lives to it.”
