Meet Thandi

It is with great pleasure to introduce Thandi Dombo to the Shift brand. Her new store, based in the magnificent Waterhouse Building in the heart of Century City's business district is a testament to her unique style.


Thandi, after graduating High School, went to study at The International Hotel School. She started working for the Carnival Cruise Line in Florida, USA. She then went on to become the Restaurant Manager of Champagne French Bakery in California. Her final stint overseas was as Executive Housekeeper for a company based in Hawaii.


After returning from overseas, Thandi set out to become an entrepreneur in her own right. She founded event companies, MAD Functions and Purple Orchid in addition to the luxurious L'Opulance Restaurant in Sandton.


Now based in Cape Town, her new Shift Espresso Bar will be a haven for those seeking amazing coffee, excellent service and a stylish break from the office.
