Our Story

We are an African-owned business based in Midtown East, New York City. We are certified as a Minority-Owned Business Enterprise (MBE) by the New York City Department of Small Business Services. The company was founded on a vision to shift boundaries in African cuisine and affirm the continent's resourcefulness through its colorful and sometimes untapped spices, roots, tubers, and grains. We connect the slave routes from Africa to the Americas and the Caribbean and amplify the evolution and commonalities of African food in these three regions. Voila Afrique, therefore, offers a variety of African and Latin American street food, including vegan options. The menu features dishes such as jollof rice, coconut fried rice, ugali, banku, kenkey, plantain fufu, eba (yuca balls), white rice, pounded yam, organic vegetable medley, peanut butter stew, vegan beef suya, organic collard greens & kale, vegan egusi, halal goat meat stew, halal beef stew, and egusi. Voila Afrique also offers catering services.
Our Ambition

The capital raised in this investment offering will be used to expand Voila Afrique through a second location in either Brooklyn or the West Side of Manhattan. A second, bigger space will allow the business to expand its menu offering and accommodate more customers, introducing more people to the diverse cuisines of Africa.
