He moved from his first residence to live with a pastor he named Daniel Darkwa and started selling Ga kenkey but the business was not profitable.
Richard was advised by a friend to move to Pretoria to sell his food, which was his breaking point.
With the money he made, he rented a place and started his restaurant business.
The young man said he has employed six people and has purchased five cars for himself.

YEN.com.gh earlier reported that a Ghanaian man, Kojo Antwi Boasiako, has granted an interview with Zion Felix TV where he opened up about his journey towards becoming a personnel manager of a company in France with over 500 employees.
In the interview, Kojo recounted that he left Ghana in 2003 at the age of 21 after his uncle invited him for a stay in France.
Things took a different turn upon arrival in France as life became very difficult, Daniel revealed.
As far as he was concerned, he was to continue schooling but that was not the case.
"For eight good years, I cried daily especially when I thought of all the things I could have achieved if I had stayed in Ghana", Antwi Boasiako said.
