Our Testimonials

Village Table – Sean Lubbe

During the past year it has been an absolute pleasure working with Mandy and her team.  I have found her to be extremely professional, on the ball, and more importantly she has provided our business with the correct marketing and advertising strategy and tools to ensure that our restaurant continues to grow from strength to strength.

Her passion for the hospitality industry is world class and I highly recommend her and you shall not be disappointed in her work ethic.

GM Village Table

Kevin Styan – Hazpak

In 2017 Hazpak took the decision to contract the services of Mandy and the Maraschino team to help with
marketing and social media advertising as the company lacked exposure. The Maraschino team then
exposed Hazpak to Google, Twitter, LinkedIn, Intagram and Facebook giving Hazpak great visibility to the
services, core functions and capabilities of the company.

We have found the dedication, commitment and work ethic to be of extreme professionalism and Mandy’s
ability to show great interest in the actual core business of our company was amazing which is a great help
when advertising the services we offer. Hazpak have found Maraschino a pleasure to deal with and can
highly recommend them to give a company that extra exposure they need out in a tough environment in
todays business World.

Based on the above we can certainly recommend Mandy and her team at Maraschino.

Director / Member

Willem van Loggerenberg

For the last year, Mandy Rootman and her exceptional marketing team has taken care of all my social marketing and advertising.

With myself being somewhat of an “old school” sceptic when it comes to anything social, I decided to bring Mandy and her team on board, and I can honestly say that I haven’t looked back since.

My brand on social media has grown substantially – as far as getting the word out to everyone within my own community, I can honestly say that in my eyes there is no better marketing team than maraschino, not only in the way that they run my social media and marketing, but also the one on one service that I receive from them on a weekly basis. Not only do they visit my sore on a weekly basis, but they are always ready to keep you up to date with ideas and the latest marketing trends and specialized client services, and this in my eyes make them a great asset and team member as part of the Refresh Restaurant Café Brand.

So if you find yourself looking for a social media / marketing team, and you happen to end up on this web page – Look no further, you found the ideal team to grow your brand.

African Edu-Eco Wizard

Mandy Rootman and Maraschino Marketing have been a primary service provider and associate of African Edu-Eco Wizard, a specialist eco-tourism development and conservation training company, for the past 8-years.

Maraschino is highly recommended and commended as an extremely professional company which goes the extra mile at all times. Their marketing and social media expertise is beyond compare.

Mandy exudes a professional attitude and friendly demeanor at all times, ensuring all needs, demands and requests are dealt with and concluded in a manner unparalleled. The friendly manner of execution of tasks at hand are simply too good to just muster words. Actions speak louder than words and I can attest to this.

In a nutshell, Maraschino under the expert guidance of Mandy and her team of professionals are highly recommended and quite frankly is a one-stop-shop for all marketing and social media requirements. It works for AEEW and will work for you.

Managing Owner

Barbara Scogings

I’ve known Mandy socially and in the workplace for many years; when a person behaves the same way in both diverse environments, you know that you’re dealing with someone authentic. She brings with her the following qualities in abundance:  she is real, practical, honest, responsible, capable, intelligent, kind, compassionate, witty, strong and resilient. She is solutions orientated and a natural problem solver. Nothing gets her down. I would always call on Mandy if wanting a job done thoroughly and efficiently.

Personal Coach

Karen Landman

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Mandy Rootman from Maraschino Lifestyle Marketing for all the amazing things she has done for my business. I bought a day spa in Ballito at the beginning of 2018, it was really overwhelming and I did not know where to start to get new clients and keep the regular clients that visited the spa before I took over.

Mandy got involved in my social media marketing as well as the planning of my relaunch and soon I was at ease, her enthusiasm soon spread to myself and my staff. Mandy is calm and confident, she portrays a lovely positive attitude and always makes her clients as well as their clients at ease.

Mandy has great ideas, works with her clients to implement these ideas and ensures that her clients are happy and receive the results that they expect.

I would recommend Mandy for any events, social media or marketing.  She is bubbly, happy and trustworthy.

Thank you Mandy, we really appreciate all the time you spend at our spa to share ideas and make our business the best in the area.
