Fresh Exclusive Club, a new night club, has opened in Maun, the heart of Botswana’s tourism. The club, which opened its doors to revellers during this past Independence holidays, has since become a hit with the people of Maun.
Fresh Exclusive club is the brainchild of 24-year-old, Reneilwe Manex Wright, a renowned Maun businessman. In an interview with The Telegraph, the high flying businessman said he opened the club after he realised that Maun had grown and people needed a place of entertainment. He cited the opening of the new mine in Toteng,in the outskirts of Maun, as one of the reasons that motivated the opening of the club so as to provide a place where people can go and unwind after a hectic day at work.
He said he also wanted to diversify his business empire, which includes, among others, property development and butcheries.
Wright said his target market is the working class and the corporate, which best describes why his club has been divided into three sections. There is the VIP section, where people can book and have private parties.
There is also the lounge section, where people can seat and discuss business deals in comfort and then there is the open section with the dance floor for those patrons who come to the club merely to jive.
The magnificent club boasts of state of the art lighting and a touch of ceramic tiling. The club is also fully air-conditioned and revellers can dance the night away without sweating. Wright has said, as a way of giving back to the community, his club has employed thirteen youths who are all from the Borolong Ward where the club is located. The club has a resident DJ and an elderly person in the management bringing the total staff compliment to fifteen.
The well-built young businessman said he has no problem with the current hours of operation for clubs. He said what was important is for people to understand that there is nothing wrong with coming to the club early instead of the current situation where people tend to think clubs exist as an extension to bars and, therefore, its only after bars close that people go to the clubs.
Wright said he intends to open other clubs in Francistown and Gaborone by next year in April. He paid tribute to his late father and mother who he said mentored him to become a successful businessman from the tender age of eighteen. He remains grateful to God for giving him the strength to carry on, despite the challenges that often come with running businesses. He also encouraged other youth to emulate him and venture into business, especially the entertainment industry.
“Young people should not be afraid to take risks if they want to make it in the business world,” said Wright.
