Romeo pizza is a quality conscious/award company and before they give a franchise, they would make sure that the franchisor has the capacity to maintain the quality for which their products are known for all over the world. We met the requirement and it was given to us.
The same thing with Sweet Charlie’s Ice Cream. They too has a very high standard and they saw that we have the capacity to meet it. So, from early next year we hope to be giving Nigerians the best pizza and Ice from the biggest brands in the world. You don’t have to travel outside the country to have a taste of quality pizza and ice cream”.
