Interview By Amina Isah

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

I am Osas Omorodion, CEO of SassieChops. Everyone calls me Phranka. I am the first of three girls, a graduate of Economics from the University of Abuja.

What motivated you towards this business?

SassieChops is just one of the many things I feel passionate about. As an Economist, I’m all about wealth creation and it doesn’t hurt that I love to work my way in the kitchen.

What are the challenges you face in this line of business?

There are lots of competition in the small-chops industry. You have to constantly stay creative and come up with signature dishes that appeal to your customers while still maintaining decent pricing considering the state of things in the economy.

For how long have you been into this business?

Only a few years.

In five years to come where do you see yourself?

In major cities around the country, with a larger work force. And tons and tons of signature recipes to the Sassie chops arsenal. I’m not only concerned with growing the business and garnering recognition; it is very important to me that Sassie chops becomes an outlet to touching lives. I see us creating a food outlets that feeds the poor, visits the sick, and more.

I’m hoping that in five years, we at Sassie chops would create a health outlet for people struggling with issues such as diabetes, hypertension, weight loss, and more.

 What is your advice to the youths and upcoming entrepreneurs?

Never give up on your dreams, don’t be afraid to dream big. Be open to failure, it’s a learning tool. Understand that you can’t do it alone. You need all the help you can get so surround yourself with a team best suited to you. Be open to criticism but don’t take it personally, you can’t always please everybody.

If people want to get in touch with you, how will they be able to reach you?
