A Secondary School Leaver who rejects an opportunity to go to University has been reportedly selling fried yams for 6 years and is making huge gains from it.
According to reports, the vendor of One Styk Fries, Dominic Oduro, has been selling fried yam for the past six years after he took over the food brand from his mother after senior high school.
It was revealed that Dominic worked as a swimming coach and French teacher before taking over the business at Bawaleshie, East Legon, Accra.
He, however, overlooked the challenges, focusing on growing and rebranding the small business. He mentioned that, when he took over, they were selling without a portable shelter.
His mother, Madam Akua Asare, told SVTV Africa that before Oduro took over the trade, the family planned for their son to further his education, but he turned down the opportunity, saying he wanted to take over his mum’s business and make it better.
Oduro’s bold decision paid off. ”Some of his graduate friends come here to borrow money from him. Gradually, he’s been able to get his first car from this,” Madam Akua said.
Oduro, in his 20s, hopes to open another branch of One Styk Fries in two years. His growing business serves fried yam with gizzard, redfish, and octopus.
