Wachana na @luomerican!
huyo ni jamaa anado well majuu, congrats to him. He has 4 kids, ranging from 13yrs to a 1yr old at 52yrs. one thing that happens, when you get to majuu, your social life gets disorganized, and depending with how big your dreams are, it may take a minute before getting a family.
unapata boys uliwacha primary schools, getting married, na wewe bado uko light years before getting there. but all is good.

US is the land of milk and honey.
A single restaurant location can make you like like a king. Leafy suburb, big house, big cars..

But I see how. He says he serves over 1,000 people per day. At an average of $15, that's Ksh1.5 million revenue per day.
Methinks Ranalo in Nairobi does similar kind of revenues vile hufungua kuanzia 11 mpaka past midnight..and given one can't spend less than 600 shillings hapo.

I doubt they make all that. That's over 500 million a year.
But even if they did, it's one of maybe less than 10 restaurants in the whole of Kenya that can make that.

That Swahili village is a specialized niche restaurant, not even targeting the natives of that area.

That's very good money! He should invest in kenya too
May'be he does. The Kenyans that own Thatched House huko East Lando rake it biiiiig and have invested heavily in Kenya.Where ese can I get ngima, mukimo, roasted ribs, tusker the big one and malt lager,Stew njeri hihihihi but a very nice one, fried tilapia, find homies from back home? You don't even need to know anyone, home away from home, speak loudly in lugha ya mama Okuyo and Swahili and no funny looks from panters....then party mpaka 3am closing time....I don't have to mention that Thatched is heaven for Naijo men who turn up at 2 am to pick up our sloshed pretty slayqueens.
We thank you Komasha na Njau...

There are many restaurants that make such a huge amount of money here ..What makes America special is how a restaurant in the Equivalent of Kitui or Karatina or Busia can have such revenues
