Brokrogen in fresh new premises – on the other side of the street

Brokrogen in Knislinge has moved. To the other side of the street. After a year of renovation and preparations, the pizzeria has now moved into the premises which used to house both a clothes shop and a toyshop.

Four years ago Waleed Simon Shaikh Khudur took over Brokrogen in Knislinge along with his father Khaled Khader, and with the help of other family members they ran the pizzeria successfully. But Simon wanted to expand.So he got in touch with Göingehem and asked about the premises on the other side of the street, which were standing empty.

– They were happy to help., says Simon.

But the premises were empty and unsuitable for a restaurant. A lot of work was needed to put things in order. The family got a helping hand from Ola and Anna-Karin Wiberg, who run the Ica shop in Broby. They got to know the family when several of their children worked for them.

– This summer we had three of Simon's brothers and sisters working for us. One has a permanent job, says Ola Wiberg.

Seldo Talal, Khaled Khader and Simon Shaikh Khudur run Brokrogen in Knislinge. 'You've got to work hard if you want to get anywhere ”, says Simon Shaikh Khudur.  His pizzeria is open from 11 am till 10 pm Monday  till Thursday and from 11 am till 11 pm on Friday and Saturday.

”You've got to work hard if you want to get anywhere”
Simon Khudur

Simon Shaikh Khudur once worked in the Wibergs' shop himself. He worked his shift there, and then went on to work in the restaurant.

– You've got to work hard if you want to get anywhere, says Simon Shaikh Khudur.

Today he is glad that he put in all that hard work. In future he would like to train as a chef or a bartender.

He has tried having a troubadour-evening in the restaurant. He hopes to be able to continue with this in the new, bigger premises.

– I want my guests to go out with a smile on their face, says Simon Khudur.

During the whole pandemic the business has flourished. Simon Shaikh Khudur recently turned 23.

– That day I worked until ten in the evening, and then we had a party, he laughs.
