With more than 16 years experience in the restaurant industry, Maro Zaroudoukas triumphantly owned two Ninos stores spanning a period of 10 years. Following that and her own personal need for expansion, expression and growth, Maro, the dynamic individual that she is, forged ahead with the opening of her very own restaurant, Zaras.
First opening in Umhlanga Rocks in 2006, a second Zaras swiftly followed in Durban North in 2007. Although both were geared for victory, her presence was missed and thus diluted through the ownership of two stores. Recognising that the cornerstone of the success of her restaurant is her very effervescent and charismatic personality, she prudently sold up and relocated the flagship store to the rapidly developing Dolphin Coast in 2010 where she personally establishes and maintains good rapport with all her guests.
A determined and vivacious peoples person, she launched Zaras at the Ballito Lifestyle Centre with huge success. A perfectionist and captain of this tight ship, she is well respected and adored by her team for her no-nonsense approach to maintaining only the highest standards and keeping her guests coming back for more scrumptious food, excellent service and vibrant atmosphere.
Maro is committed to providing her guests with quality food and service in a fresh and uncomplicated environment. She scores well where service excellence and hospitality is concerned and offers nothing by half measure.
