About the Entrepreneur: Amanda Jojo

Born and raised in Johannesburg, Amanda Jojo founded The Trea Garden, an upscale cafe providing high quality coffee and accompaniments in a relaxing atmosphere. Amanda started the cafe with a view to combine her passion for food and beverage with entrepreneurship to help contribute to creating employment opportunities in South Africa— a country grappling with unsustainable levels of youth unemployment.
