HOW DID THE JOURNEY STARTED INTO THIS CONCEPT THAT HAS COME TO STAY

While working the usual 8-5 office routine, I needed a plan b side hustle, I decided to pray about it, it God laid this concept in my heart. At first I was sceptical about it, but while still working, I started the business only on Saturdays at first in the Ebeano Village market then.

WHY IN A SHOPPING COMPLEX BESIDE  EBEANO INSTEAD OF THE USUAL ROAD SIDE IN A DECENT SPACE 

 Like me then, I knew there were many people who relish Akara and Pap but couldn't access it in a decent platform hence my choice for Ebeano many thanks to the Ebeano MGT who bought into the vision.
