Growing steadily in Kampala
Ten years later, as the General Manager of Hot Loaf Bakery in Kampala, Gustro was still on Mr. Lusiba’s mind. He ordered his first consignment of books from Oxford University Press, 20 boxes of New Oxford English Course (NOEC, now obsolete).
With Gustro as his private business & working after hours, Mr. Lusiba hired 3 employees to promote the sale of OUP publications within Kampala.
In June 1992, he left Hot Loaf Bakery and started full time as the Managing Director of Gustro Limited. Mr. Lusiba acquired storage facilities on Jinja Road, and later managed to sublet a shop in Madhvani Building.
In 1993, Gustro Limited was appointed an official distributor of Oxford University Press publications in Kampala, in addition to their head office at Kisozi Complex, Nakasero.
In 2003 OUP closed and Gustro Limited became the sole authorized distributor of Oxford publications in Uganda.
As time went on, Gustro grew from strength to strength as Mr. Lusiba built relationships with other publishers and book sellers in the country.
