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.
