12 March 2024- In response to recent reports surrounding an incident involving artist Emtee, Kabelo, and other local artists at a store named Mike’s Heritage House, Mike's Kitchen wishes to clarify its position. The store in question is not affiliated with Mike’s Kitchen, nor is it owned or operated by the renowned restaurant chain.

"We strongly condemn any form of racism, discrimination, or prejudice at any establishment, including the recent incident reported at Mike’s Heritage House," stated a spokesperson for Mike's Kitchen. "Racism has no place in our society, and we stand firmly against it."

It has also come to light that Mike's Kitchen is currently involved in litigation with Mike’s Heritage House for various reasons, including the unauthorized use of a name, look, and feel closely resembling that of Mike’s Kitchen. While this legal matter is ongoing, Mike's Kitchen apologizes for any misunderstanding it may have caused and reaffirms its dedication to diversity and tolerance.

"While we had no control over activities at Mike’s Heritage House and do not have all the facts, we recognize the necessity of continuing to address issues of racism and prejudice," the spokesperson added.

Moving forward, Mike's Kitchen is committed to making its establishments even more welcoming and considerate to all visitors. The restaurant chain aims to learn from the experiences of others and is taking proactive initiatives to ensure that all customers feel valued and respected at Mike's Kitchen, a truly South African brand.

The incident serves as a reminder of the importance of upholding values of inclusivity, respect, and equality for all individuals, and Mike's Kitchen remains steadfast in its commitment to these principles.
