Sam’s Delicious Treats est. 2020

The story of Samantha Nicole Davids

My name is Samantha Nicole Davids director of Sam’s Delicious Treats. Who would’ve known that there would be Sam’s Delicious Treats or I will be a director or owner of a company, sometimes I must pinch myself to see if I’m not dreaming….

Summary of how I eventually become an entrepreneur.

I was working for “ Eetmark” where I met Susan Bosman who was my manager . Eetmark was a sort of a place where you can buy take away lunches and dinners and that came to an end after 1 year and Susan came to me with a proposal that I must come and work for her where she started supplying rusk biscuit. I took her offer as I just lost my job and income and like I always believe and what is one of my philosophies “Be grateful with what you receive because the Lord has many ways to test you “. So she started to train me on how to make rusk biscuit and not for long as business was expanding we hired a place on a farm.

In 2017 I met Marie and I continue with the baking her with the rusk, muffins, rice crispies etc… I learnt a lot from Marie for the 3 years until the pandemic ruined everything where we lost our jobs

In June 2020(lockdown level 3) I received a call from Marie where she ask me if I’m interested to supply Kashifa (Hazz Stellenbosch) with sandwiches where I was caught off guard and she motivate me to do so and she want an answer the night. I approach my husband and inform him about the call from Marie where he first ask questions and want my commitment before he agrees and from there he stood by my side and believe in me. Marie offered to sell her ovens and equipment to me and from there onwards we supply Hazz Stellenbosch & Newlands. Our first mission we accomplish in July where the company was registered with the name “Sam’s Delicious Treats “.

From only sandwiches Kashifa encourage me to also do mini cakes, muffins & wraps and so we supply. At first Kashifa always told me or keep me on the toes with how the mini cakes icing looks and she wants it or the muffin must be little bit bigger than this but hey this how I learnt to keep my clients happy “a happy client is a happy supplier “because if she didn’t inform me about what she expect how would I have known. So from we start making Quiches, rice crispies, chocolate brownies and stated with Cakes

 So as up on today we expand so much that we supply for 3 more companies as well excluding Stellenbosch- & Newlands Hazz. We also have done several parties, confirmation celebrations during the year and we do not only supply or satisfied humans we also had to bake a birthday cake for a dog who celebrates her 10th birthday in October.

So Susan Bosman and Marie played a major part in my career by believing in me and I’m grateful for what they had seen in me I salute them. Thank you

häzz, coffee for heroes

häzz as a brand supports a modern, youthful and healthy culture. The slogan for häzz reads: coffee for heroes, stating an appreciation for people making an improvement to their community using local resources to make the best of their own talent.

The bottom line is that everyone can be a hero on any given day. And häzz wants to celebrate that on a daily basis.

We have official brand ambassadors – or häzz heroes – in the likes of endurance athlete Landie Greyling, triathlete Mari Rabie, personal trainer Mia Mocke and motorcycle endurance junkie Timothy Hay.

Mari, currently traveling for her triathlon races said it best: “The häzz family embodies a characteristic way of thinking, feeling and acting. Like-minded people that do not mind standing out from the crowd and doing their own thing! In a world dominated by what is regular, be like häzz – unique, independent & committed to quality.”

“I am so proud to be part of the häzz family as I am so passionate about the brand. häzz truly have the best coffee in the world! I love traveling, but whenever I travel I probably miss my häzz fix the most. Apart from the coffee – the häzz shop in Stellenbosch is like my home. I love the vibe and the people. It’s my happy place,” Mia our latest hero added.

Landie has been an häzz hero for a few years already, also said: “I really love the soft and flavourful taste of the häzz blend. The aromas early in the morning when we start brewing are priceless! To feel like a hero everyday is special just as special as being part of the häzz family – like-minded people with so much positive energy!”

We have shops in Stellenbosch and Newlands – both has vibrant communities with a great appreciation for good quality coffee.
