About the Show


Vetkoek Paleis is a South African television sitcom set in the small town of Nigel, where Frik Delport starts his own take-away business after being fired due to staff layoffs.
Over time, he realises that it is not always so easy to have your own business enterprise, as we follows the trials and tribulations of starting a business from scratch.
Frikkadel Delport is the owner of Vetkoek Paleis, which he opened after losing his job.
Before he can find him, he hires two unplanned members of staff, Worsie and Boeboe, who change his own ideas about his business.
Frikkadel experiences the everyday challenges of being Boss, from giving away 22 fat cakes for free because the "health inspector" comes to visit, to the opposition wanting to steal his fat cake recipe.
When business is quiet, Frikkadel consults a consultant who is far too expensive and Boeboe comes to the rescue with a cunning but clever plan.
