Tell us a few words about the founders and how the idea came
Coming back from India and working as a software developer for Njorku.com and other companies, I had difficulties getting food when I really needed it.
With 43% of the total disposable income per household annually in Cameroon spent on food and beverages and Not being the only person with the need to eat while at work or without the extra time to get to a restaurant, I decided to put a team together that can be able to deliver cooked food to busy consumers on a daily bases.
Rata-grab was created in June 2016 in Buea Cameroon by Njaiyo Sakwe who is the Founder/CEO with Software development experience of more than 4 years.
