Just in time for the first few spring blossoms and of course the summer party season, a new cheeky butler service has arrived in South Africa called Butlers in the Buff. Hailing from the U.K where the business has enjoyed tremendous success, experts in etiquette Butlers in the Buff offers a premium, highly professional, bespoke service that is sophisticated, unique and of course, fun.
Butlers in the Buff are the perfect addition to any celebration and are sure to make your event one to truly remember. The Butlers provide whatever service you require during the event, whether it is to serve champagne and canapŽs, top up drinks, cook a braai, or open the door and greet guests upon arrival.
Tailoring their outfit to match the theme of the party, Butlers in the Buff can cater to a wide range of audiences. For a bachelorette celebration it might be a bow tie, collar, cuffs and a bottom-revealing apron to make the girls giggle. But for a summer themed cocktail party perhaps Butlers in boardshorts might be more suitable, or trousers for a corporate product launch.
Kobus Du Toit, 31, a former U.K Butler himself, has bought the company's first African franchise and, with the full support of the team overseas, hopes it will be just as successful here as it is in Britain, Australia and the U.S.
"After about 9 years living in England I started looking out for an opportunity to build a business back home in South Africa. It was around the same time when I started working for Butlers in the Buff and that's how I spotted my opportunity! I knew straight away that this will work well in South Africa, so I approached founder and Managing Director, Jason Didcott with my proposal."
Butlers in the Buff are currently available for bookings in South Africa's four major cities, starting from approximately R700 per hour. With bookings already on the calendar, Kobus is always on the look out to recruit the next Butler to join his team. For more information visit
