Brian Altriche is the founder of RocoMamas.
Eighteen months ago there were only three branches in Johannesburg; today there are 40 across South Africa.
RocoMamas claims its “smash burger” is the country’s most Instagrammed one.
The term “smash burger” refers to the process of smashing a ball of ground beef on a hot grill to seal in the juices.
Altriche recently sold his niche dining concept to Spur Corporation.
