About Sweet Kiwi:
I got the idea to start Sweet Kiwi in 2010, I was very into frozen yogurt at the time. I registered to train to learn how to make frozen yogurt and other desserts. I went through training for about two years. Coming to Nigeria to start the business was pretty scary, I had not been in Nigeria for a very long time and I did not know what to expect. It was challenging at the beginning but I preserved and the product and brand began to do very well on its own. We started with event catering and built a name in that sector catering several major events. With time we were able to open our flagship store which has been very successful. Sweet Kiwi is committed to delivering a healthy dessert experience that meets international standards everytime. Future plans for Sweet Kiwi is expansion through Nigeria and Africa, we are currently working on opening several new locations across Nigeria within the next two years. We are looking to kick off a franchise program within Nigeria and then the African continent.
