The Chief Executive Officer of the famous Adinkra pastries that are hawked on many streets of Accra and Kumasi is Barimah Osei Mensah.
According to a report sighted by YEN.com.gh on Risingafrica.com, Mensah was previously a banker at the Bank of American with an MBA he obtained from the University of Texas.
It is reported that everything was going on well with his work until one day when he decided to take a bold step to quit and return to Ghana.
Mensah, after touching down in Ghana, started a first business that was into making rings for students during graduation but it failed drastically.
After that, the now renowned CEO started a restaurant that quickly gave him the idea of focusing on pastries with unique packaging.
Adinkra pie came as a result and was opened on September 11, 2011, in Kumasi before the business started to grow and extend to other parts of Ghana.
Mensah reveals that at his lowest point in the business, he had to sell out many belongings including his flat-screen TV and actually planned to fly back to America for greener pastures.
In a separate report by YEN.com.gh, Kofi Oppong Owusu and his beautiful wife Mrs Gracy Adwoa Owusu are young graduates from the University of Ghana who now run their own business called Aperto Windows.
In an exclusive interview with YEN.com.gh, Kofi, who can be reached on +233 55 811 3447, revealed that his wife was his coursemate that he properly encountered when they were both in level 300.
The two, who also attended the same church, drew close to each other over time and decided to settle down as a married couple soon after they finished university.
