Nana Kwamena Takyi-Micah, a Ghanaian-born college student in Hiram was always fascinated by his mother’s cooking. She was particularly known throughout their neighborhood for her delicious jollof rice (a common Ghanaian dish) served with a spicy chicken sauce. After first moving to the United States for college, Nana missed all the spicy foods he used to enjoy back in his homeland including his mum’s famous recipe.
He also continuously craved for Ghanaian foods as a result of the lack of African supermarkets in the Hiram area. This birthed the idea of Micah Specialty Foods at the Entrepreneurship Immersion Week competition in Ashland University that was held in August 2011 after a successful taste test for Supreme Sauce during the event. In the past two years he has prepared numerous free samples to friends and family to try with their steak, fish, rice, potatoes and so on. He is also in the process of finalizing agreements with Dorina Inc. as the manufacturers of the product.
