Restaurant on Wheels Offers Affordable Prices

first_imgMr. Benjamin Darpoh, 40, of 19th Street in Monrovia has found the most effective way to bring food to his customers.“Customers call me and I supply them with food at affordable prices,” Darpoh said in an interview yesterday. Supplying food to his customers is done from a mobile restaurant.Described as ‘mobile kitchen’ the vehicle is equipped with a deep freezer, a microwave oven, an electric cooker, a mini freezer and many gadgets that make his venture workable.Darpoh, a father of two young children, said he decided to venture into this business to offer cheap but quality food service to people that do not have the time to go for lunch. “Catering runs in my family and for me it is a hobby. I love cooking, right. I learned it from my mother (Madam McLeod Darpoh, former Commerce Minister). I turned what became my hobby into a money-making venture,” he said.Darpoh said he started the business with assistance from one of his cousins. “A lot of people are not involved into this particular business and my cousin embraced the idea and today I am finally doing it,” he said.He admitted the cost to the venture is high, “and since I began two and half months ago, the profit is trickling in and I know that with time things will become better.”On the challenges he faces as the owner of a restaurant on wheels, he said the prices are not stable because of the inability of the Liberian government to regulate commodity prices. However, he is not deterred and is moving ahead.Mr. Darpoh urged Liberians to visit him on Broad Street, opposite Rivoli Cinema to taste his cuisine that is taking the city by storm.Some of the foods he offers include hot dogs, chicken burger/Hamburger, chicken sandwich, French fries, fried chicken, fried rice and chicken and chicken pie.Many of his customers are students of the nearby BW Harris High School. Sales are higher in the evening hours, he said, and he has offers for group services.“I’m working on delivery services to my customers anywhere in the city using motorbikes,” Darpoh said.For now the long white bus depicting his wares, is seen near the Rivoli Cinema with chairs set out for customers to enjoy the meals that only Ben Darpoh and his team can offer.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
