Key program components
It presently has 20 outlets in Kampala and its surrounding suburbs and plans to double the number of outlets over the next 2-3 years. The chain's expansion to date has been mostly internally financed, but it recently received a substantial investment from The Abraaj Group to help fund its expansion. The new locations will help Vine spread across the country, to the Northern, Eastern, and Western parts of the country.
