Carl Joshua Ncube Ventures Into Retail

Comedian and hotelier Carl Joshua Ncube has set his sites onthe retail sector with a new project HOME MADE.


The idea is that Carl has been working with many home made brands for years in his Carl Can Cook TV show, some ingredients have found their way into his menu at Cotton Country Inn.

It all stemmed from a Saturday BBQ launched at the end of May. From it Carl had a plan to walk these entrepreneurs through branding and marketing advice and reselling their brands under his brand new website which is under construction.

Carl says the demand for organic food is high across the world and he will work towards making sure product moves and his available via various enterprise ideas. Some of them include having guests pre-order what they want and depart with it on check out. An hour away from Harare, Carl will use his base as a place to collect merchandise for any who want to simply get over there and pick it up.

Some of the brands he is already working with are:

  • My Name Is Cow – An idea to put together vegetables for people and recipe cards for healthy eating etc and so forth. Farm fresh produce really.
  • Shambala custom made African jewellery
  • Rutherford’s billtong
  • Kiki’s Chilli Sauce
  • Wild Child natural beauty products

All these products will be available at the next BBQ set for 27 June 2015 at Cotton Country Inn in Kadoma.
