The Oasis Water concept sprung to life in 2003 with one store. The concept of bottling clean, safe drinking water at an affordable price was integrated with the additional benefit of refilling large containers. Friendly service completed the offering.
By the end of the next year another two stores had been added, reaffirming the fact that the Oasis concept was underpinned by sound business principles and offered a proven product. With these fundamentals in place it was decided that the best way to grow the business, the brand and entrepreneurial spirit within Oasis was through franchising.
2009 - Oasis becomes a full member of the Franchise Association of South Africa (FASA).
Full membership at PET Plastic Recycling South Africa (PETCO) is also obtained. As the first South African bottled water company to carry the PETCO logo on our bottles, we support initiatives for ongoing recycling in South Africa.
