Tawanda Mutyebere is an award winning Zimbabwean entrepreneur, musician and founder of Packers International which owns the fast-food operation Slice Group.

Mutyebere also founded Con-Tools which specialises in the supply of tar products and road construction.

His company Packers International opened its first project on May 1, 2010, along the Harare- Masvingo highway at the 192km peg in Mvuma.

The company opened its second and third food outlets in March and September 2011 respectively in Harare. Packers international has outlets in Harare, Bulawayo, Gweru and Masvingo.

Packers international emerged at a time when innscor was the single dominating enterprise in the food court industry with its Chicken, Pizza, Creamy and Backers inn.

Tawanda managed to introduce notable competition which put direct heat on Innscor to provide better service and more promotions if they were to stay in the game.

He was inspired by his father who owned a carpentry shop that employed 6 people and was a mine worker at the same time.

His first company was Con Tools in 2004 which supplied Bitumen, Modified Tar and cold mix and has been servicing the Government and public sectors since then..

Mutyebere believes in the adage that “good fortune happens when opportunity meets preparation”.
