We had the good fortune of connecting with Theodora Osei-Fordwuo and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Theodora, we’d love for you to start things off by telling us something about your industry that we and others not in the industry might be unaware of?
Our food is healthy, authentic, unique and flavorful. It’s not strange, spicy, it’s all vegetables and spices, gluten-free, sugar free, dairy free etc.

What should our readers know about your business?
African Grill and Bar is a family owned restaurant, we as a family established it in 2004, by then we used to call it Afrikiko, then 2010 we decided to rename it By it’s current name. It a restaurant that serve food across Africa. Although we from Ghana, we didn’t want to call it Ghanaian restaurant, because we believe in unity. United we stand, together we fall, starting this business wasn’t easy, but because of our strong faith and hard working, we have been able to acquire our own property after 16 years of sacrifice and hard labor. Some of the lessons I have lent running this business is, boldness, humility, quality not quantity, being upfront with who ever you deal with, focus on doing the right things, and always have it at the back of your mind, you can’t make everyone happy no matter how had you tried, but so far as you ready to do your part, let the rest go. At the end of the day your mind set should be doing your best and the rest add up. Above all trust in your faith, which is my God.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
African Grill and Bar, the mountains, Redrocks, Gardens of the gods etc
