Newcastle was first introduced to a fresh-faced, newly-matriculated Johan Pieters through his info guide in 1995. Under the banner of Johan Pieters Promotions, the first guide featured 10 local businesses on a small pamphlet. still preserved in a file, Johan fondly remembered those who helped lay the foundation for their 20 year empire. “The first businesses featured were The Style Inn, Madame Et Monsieur, Scott Street Pharmacy, BJ Driving School, Propman, Newcastle Motor Mecca, Ralphies’ Glass, Natal Framers, Snowhaven Tuisnywerheid and Waltons. They took a chance on me, despite my having no previous experience.” Slow, steady progress was the way forward for Johan.
