Our remarkable Story
Our story began in 2015 when we founded The MY PLACE GROUP and subsequently our most successful brand, The Mussel Monger & Oyster Bar. Armed with a mere R800 as start-up capital, resilience and dream, we began our journey as a team to build a company together that celebrates and empowers all who work in it. We empower our people, our oceans and nature and look for sustainable solutions to food sources purveying these remarkable jewels of the Capes Southern Ocean, live oysters & mussels.
Today The MY PLACE Group, holding company of The Mussel Monger & Oyster Bar employs 35 crew strong and counting with an additional 65 crew indirectly supported via our farms. We’re on a mission to change the way people think about employment and work with crew by making them apart of the bigger company picture and privy to our joint goals and dreams as a team.

You may notice I refer to “we” quite often. During the early stages it was just me as a shareholder, but “we” refers to the collective of the team. I believe that we all work for the company and our goal is to uplift and grow it and by doing so, “we” uplift everyone that works in the company and that everyone ultimately gets to benefit from its success though security and a passion to grow and be a part of something bigger than themselves.
