Things to Consider before starting a food business in Nigeria.

A Good Space

Starting a food business in Nigeria, requires a good space. People like to eat in a very comfortable and clean place. Locating your food business around some dirty environment or in some uncompleted building will scare people off.

While serving as a Corper in Jos Plateau state Nigeria, my friend and I wanted to taste Jos food, so we walk down the street to get a good food to eat. It was on a Sunday, so many food restaurants are not opened. After a long walk, we found a place. We entered and the restaurant contains a very dirty curtain, there were only 3 chairs inside and everywhere was stuffing. We still manage to take a sit. Looking beside us, we saw a very dirty drainage with thousands of flies clubbing. We stared at ourselves and shook our head. We had to leave the place and find an alternative. If you want to start your food business in Nigeria, you have to get a good place.

Furnish the place

When you finally get a good place for your food business, you need to do some little furnishing. People will off course not be happy or even check you out if you don’t have at least some furniture. You don’t expect them to sit on the ground or some mat. So you need to get some benches or plastic chairs and tables. Not necessarily many, but at least, few will be okay.

Utensils and Accessories

Another thing you will need is accessories like plates, spoons and forks. In some area, forks are not even needed. Just go to the market, buy good plates, like unbreakable plates because that is more presentable. Many people will reject plastic plates including me. You need to take your mind off plastic plates and spoons. Get something presentable.

Cook Good food

This is an important part of your food business in Nigeria. Cook good food for your customers. If you give them something good, they will come back again and again and even bring friends and become a regular loyal customers. Whatever food you are cooking, either rice, or swallow food, make it good. Cook like you are cooking for the president. No matter how good your place is, no matter how much you spend on furniture, the role a good food will play is very important.

Be social and show Respects

Your customers are very crucial in starting your food business. Your social life is also important. Don’t frown or shout at your customers, be jovial, always be smiling and appreciate them for coming to eat at your shop. Make them happy and that alone will keep them coming again and again until they become a loyal customer.
