KFC asks wiGroup to roll out Free Meals to feed the brave Knysna Firefighters

On the 9th of June Knysna was seized by a relentless wild fire, which razed hundreds of homes and left thousands displaced. In true South African style, donations poured in from across the country. KFC realized that the hard working firefighters needed sustenance and immediately contacted wiGroup to initiate a gift card campaign valued at over R25 000!

Within hours our tech enabled KFC meals to be distributed to the firefighters from one store, in real-time, thanks to our gifting solution. The firefighters had a swift and seamless experience in getting their free meals using wiGroup technology.

Inspirational Stories #Remarkable People

What started off as an inspirational, internal drive for wiGroup employees is blossoming into a platform of #Remarkable feats where we invite interesting South Africans to share their personal stories of success.

As one of the final candidates for the Mars One mission to Mars in 2026, meet Dr. Adriana Marais, our first guest on the Blue Couch Sessions and the only African selected for this mission. Watch her story here.

Is Brand Loyalty Essential to your growth?

According to a recent Accenture Study, 53% of consumers remain loyal to brands that are able to connect them with reputable providers to redeem loyalty points for needful things. If your rewards program could use a shot in the arm, simply reach out and we’d be glad to give you a comprehensive demonstration of the possibilities.

That’s it for this edition of the wiGroup Newsletter. Until we meet again!
