This is a project that has been close to our hearts for a few years now” said Audu Maikori the CEO of Chocolate City Group.
Speaking about the business, Paul Okeugo, Group COO of Chocolate City and CEO of CCX said “Our foray into the food and beverage industry is long overdue and has always been part of Chocolate City Group’s overall expansion plans to become a 360-degree media and entertainment business.
