Anytime I travel, I’m constantly on the look out for inspiration or ideas to replicate in Ghana. It doesn’t matter where in the world I go even if it’s within Ghana.
Last year was said to be the ‘Year of Return‘, a campaign that sought to invite the diaspora to Ghana to commemorate “400 years of the arrival of the first enslaved Africans in Jamestown, Virginia.” *.
Ghana has also been heralded as the next big tourist destination, despite its numerous untapped opportunities.
Let me get straight to the point: ” What Business Would I Start If I Had the Money? I would focus on tourism and the one place that I would like to invest in is the promotion of commercial activities at Atimpoku, a town famous for its freshly baked bread, fried shrimps, oysters, abolo, one mouth thousand (fried anchovy) fried yam and my favorite tsofi (turkey tail).
Picture a food court overlooking the Volta Lake and the famous Adomi bridge, an assorted menu of all the dishes mentioned earlier and some local drinks indigenous to the Volta and Eastern regions. Guests shouldn’t leave with only memories of the food but locally made souvenirs of very good quality and worth keeping or gifting to loved ones.
This is not a well-fleshed business idea, but anyone who has the money now is free to run with this idea and make it even better.
