NIGERIA – Eat ‘n’ Go Africa franchise, owners of Domino’s Pizza and Coldstone Creamery Nigeria, had a befitting end-of-year for owners and staff of as they gathered to celebrate a successful 2017 at a party tagged ‘Fire and Ice 2.0’ in Lagos.

The occasion was supported by iconic brands such as EMEL Group, Cosmos, Access Bank, JMG, Coca-Cola, Stanbic IBTC, Arla Foods, CHI & Cormart, Metro Health, Ark Insurance Brokers, Food & Agro Allied group, AXA Mansard, and ColdCare Nigeria Limited.

It also served as a platform for Eat ‘n’ Go to celebrate excellence among its staff.

Diligent members of staff were rewarded for their outstanding performances in the year, while long service awards were also given to some staff.

Managing Director, ‘Eat n Go’, Antonie Zammarieh, stated that the growth of the company in its five years of existence was down to the diligence of staff in the provision of high-level service to customers.

“Eat ‘n’ Go has grown much faster than anybody would have expected. With a combined 53 stores and by 2018, a total of 83 stores, we are the fastest growing quick service restaurant (QSR) business in Nigeria!

This was achieved while the country faced an 18-month recession.

This tremendous accomplishment would not have been achieved without the dedication and hard work of every single one of you.

Shareholders, directors, management, staff and every single person present at this event, we are all here to celebrate that success; your success.

But we need not forget: success is not an entitlement, but something you need to earn, every day,” said Zammarieh.

He further called on staff to keep up the tempo and be sensitive to pressures customers may put on them.

“Without customers, we do not exist.

Simple! We have to do everything we can to individually and collectively exceed their expectations.

Let’s be sensitive to the pressures our customers may put upon us.

We are in the service industry for a reason: to be the best in what we do.

We need to have the capability of delivering the best product the best service.

We want to make an impact that would make all our competition shiver by just mentioning our name,” he added.

A few weeks ago, the company launched another household name, PinkBerry.

Nigerian hip-hop acts Mayorkun and Reminisce were on hand to thrill guests.
