Grand Parade Investments Limited (GPI) is an established empowerment company, with holdings in the food and gaming sectors. The Company was founded in 1997 for the principle purpose of partnering with Sun International as its primary black economic empowerment partner in the Western Cape.

GPI listed on the main board of the JSE in 2008 and since then grew our gaming investment portfolio. More recently, GPI diversified into the food sector, through the acquisition of master franchise licences for BURGER KINGĀ®, Dunkin' Donuts, and Baskin-Robbins in South Africa.

In 1996 six people met in Cape Town to discuss the establishment of an Empowerment Group representing the diversity of marginalised communities in the Western Cape. It was at this meeting that Dr Hassen Adams, called their attention to the vista of the city beneath, punctuated by the Grand Parade and iconic facade of the Victorian-era City Hall lying beneath Table Mountain.
