Our founder Baba Afolabi coined the term Chop Plentii. Chop Plentii is a pidgin terminology. Pidgin English is commonly used in West African cities as a common form of communication amongst people who came from different tribes with different languages within a country.
In pidgin English, “chop” means “eat” and “plentii” is our creative way of spelling plenty, the state of having enough of the things that make life good and easy. Therefore Chop Plentii means, “eat enough African food to have a good and easy life!” You want Chop?
As an African living in the diaspora, it is hard to eat our traditional food on a consistent basis or share it with our friends. As a result of the difficulty, we settle for the alternative. Be it fast food, Chinese food, Pizza or eating out at an Italian Restaurant.
African food is under-represented in the marketplace. Our goal is to make eating authentic African food an option for all by making it convenient to eat at home with friends and family.
