Fast Food Market Gets New Entrant


An upscale fast food and confectionery has berthed in Lekki, Lagos.

Branded Fudgies Cafe at Russand Emporium Mall, Off Chevron Drive in Lekki, the new business is set to make its mark in the confectionary market, especially in the pastries and cakes segment, where it intends to gain ground.

At the official opening of the firm’s   first outlet graced by the crème de la crème of the society, its Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Emeka Okonya said: “With very few local cafés around, we want to have a friendly and comfortable environment where friends, family and business associates can hang out and be treated to exquisite gourmet. The location has been designed to give customers a relaxing and refreshing break from the hustles of the city. We hope to build a unique Nigerian brand to compete with international players coming into the country. We offer more than just tasty food. We offer a unique experience which we’ll constantly strive to improve on to meet our customers’ needs.

“We are putting together a number of periodic activities aimed at ensuring that customers not only enjoy good food but also have fun and excitement. These include a Children’s day special and a cake tasting event amongst others. We would like people to be able to dine here daily and feel good about themselves and our offerings.”

The Café is open for business daily from 9am till 8pm on Mondays to Saturdays and will soon start its Sunday brunch offering from 12noon to 7pm.
