Standing exactly on the spot from where it derived it’s name, Busy Corner is one of Cape Town’s continually run butcher shops. The Busy Corner story begins with our father Cassiem Dhansay, a first-generation butcher man who dedicated his life to mastering the craft. Holding family, hard work and honesty above all else, these business fundamentals have not changed in more than half a century. Our business may have grown, but our father’s philosophy still runs the organisation. The proud neighbourhood butcher giving customers the opportunity to take home a slice of our most valuable asset: A celebration of fine quality meat.


Our 3 Busy Corner Butcher Shops are bustling from the moment doors open each morning. Since 1956 it is the place where regulars have come to have chat and buy meat, housemade sausages, charcuterie and that great South African staple – the weekend braai. A place where everyone truly knows everyone and every item on our butcher’s menu is carefully curated for quality and provenance. But above all else, there is dedication. Dedication to the craft of the butcher’s block.

We like to think of our Busy Corner Local stores as the big brother to our neighbourhood butcher shops. Busy Corner Local is a result of our partnership with Pick ‘n Pay stores in the Western Cape. With the addition of 4* Busy Corner Local stores, we’ve made it even easier for our customers to always have access to meat they have come to love and trust for generations. Currently available in Grassy Park, Retreat, Lotus River and Parow, watch out for more Busy Corner Local shops to open inside a Pick ‘n Pay store in your neighbourhood soon.
