Harry brews up a storm on Mzansi streets 

Harry Mohlala left his office job in 2023 to create “Coffee on Grayston” and started selling coffee on the street in Sandton, Johannesburg. 

At first, it was tough, and even his family and friends thought he was making a big mistake. But Harry believed in his dream.

“My family and friends said I was crazy to give up a branch manager job to sell coffee on the side of the road, but I believed that it was something I just had to try,” Harry said, News24 reported. 

He began by selling coffee and tea for R15 a cup. Business was slow at first, but instead of backing down, he added hot chocolate, cappuccino, and scones to his menu. 

This helped a lot, and soon he was making enough money to support himself. Harry’s stand became popular, and he even hired someone to help him because he was doing so much business.

“I don’t regret my decision,” he said.

“I want to tell the kids that anything is possible if you put your mind and heart to it, and if you are willing to do the job. All you need to do is start.”

Harry wants his story to show that if you believe in your dream and work hard, you can achieve it. 

He wants to inspire kids from his hometown of Alexandra to follow their dreams, just like he did. 

Harry hopes to open more coffee shops in the future and create jobs for more people.
