Finance people tend to only see a bottom line so I wonder if the Neo brothers are in this for the long haul or they're readying an exit
Not our words but those from our friends at EatDrinkLagos – but we are growing quickly not because we are “Finance Boys” looking for an exit. The truth is that and for our growing customer base, we are very keen on spreading Neo love to as many as possible.
We are also coffee addicts, so for selfish reasons, it improves our quality of life to have so many locations around us. Speaking of Big Boys with money, there have been rumours that Starbucks is coming to town. Truth be told since ever since we first heard of this we have been kneeling down and praying that it is true – not because we think they will buy us (lai lai!!) but because nothing would be better for promoting coffee culture in Nigeria. So anyone who knows a good babalawo or effective shrine, give us a shout and we can use alternative channels to invite Starbucks.
Till they come sha, we’ll do our best to expand to a location near you – If you do know of any ideal locations – help us out and send us an email. Mainland Lagos we haven’t forgotten you and we are currently negotiating on locations in Yaba, Surulere & Ikeja.
