McNola Trading

Not just any Distributor of Dry Goods, Packaging and Cleaning Solutions for Restaurants, Hotels and Allied Trades!

McNola Trading was born of two minds who (combined) bring 50 years’ experience in gastronomy and service excellence to the table. Marcello Nola and Adam McKenzie have both, not only served their due time in the restaurant industry, but evolved and adapted, matching the constant change and growth in this environment of perpetual re-invention and exciting new horizons. Having taken the traditional route by working every aspect of this game, the understanding of the needs and cost effectiveness for restaurant and hotel kitchens in modern times, arms them with boundless resource to address any challenge in its field. Passion is key to success more often than not, marry it with sound knowledge of the intricacies in commerce and logistics, add good understanding of the local geography and you have a recipe for success. This passion resonates through the entire company, thus every member of the staff is infected with enthusiasm and extremely motivated to please and achieve more.

Small wonder McNola Trading has grown from humble beginnings into a force to be reckoned with in just ten years. Deliveries reach as far as Mafikeng, Sun City and Rustenburg, Potchefstroom and Klerksdorp, other than the entire central Gauteng latitude.

McNola Trading prides itself in setting and maintaining the highest levels of service-excellence, product quality and reliable, swift deliveries. The vast product range of all major brands in demand for the catering industry is complimented by various exclusive commodities, required in hotel kitchens or specialised gourmet restaurants, whether it be dry goods, packaging or cleaning chemicals. This distributor will deliver on time and is happy and able to give expert counsel on ordering, product application and relevant pricing.
