The next business property added to our portfolio was 19 Madume YA Ndemufayo Street which was initially used for storage and as a venue for maintenance work. Renovations were undertakento transform it into an office and a warehouse, as it is today. LHG Head Office is the nerve centre of all the businesses which facilitates all other activities. The need arose to have a central point for all deliveries so that the Group could service all the venues independently. This was far more effective time wise, for cost effectiveness, quality control and stock control. All deliveries are accepted on behalf of the venues at Head Office where they are processed and managed. Venues place orders for stock on a daily basis with the warehouse and stock is issued and delivered by company vehicles. Food preparation and portioning also takes place here and the warehouse kitchen is the central hub from which food is prepped for special functions. The Lighthouse Group has a maintenance crew that operate from the central warehouse as well as a car wash on the premises to keep our vehicles clean and to wash out Otto bins. The warehouse stores other stock items and houses all our vehicles. We have a vast network of CCTV cameras for security, to stop petty pilfering in the venues and for the safety of our guests. Our admin department handles all the HR, finance, purchasing, training and IT for the group.
