Four years ago, with a mission to encourage a convenient lifestyle by offering the delivery of essential goods and services to doorsteps and, offering customers the friendliest experience in the process. Nkataa was launched. We stepped into an untapped market with hopes to dominate. We did something that had not been done.
We created a platform to offer unique products that are not normally found online. Who would have imagined that there would be a time where blended crayfish or pepper could be ordered just from a click on their mobile phone. Or where you could sit at home and order groceries, household items, baby products, drinks, drugs and even make up!
In the words of Ugonna Arthur Nwaeze
“The concept of Nkataa.com is unique because a lot of e-commerce companies in Nigeria focus on fashion and electronics, while Nkataa.com focuses on food. We are the ones that focus on the needs of every home and not the “wants,” allowing us to be innovative, independent and relevant on a daily basis. We are the best thing that has happened to busy mothers, fathers, bachelor’s, or just generally people that just love convenience.”
Now you’ll ask, how has that been? Easy? Rosy?
Just like a toddler learning how to walk. We took our first few shaky steps, walked few paces, fell to the ground and got up again and even more agile. We learnt how to walk, run and even jump. Indeed we grew. From a staff strength of 4 to now over 100 we pride in being Abuja’s No 1 online food, grocery and household store.
It’s been 4 amazing years and we are celebrating today not because of how far we’ve come but because of how well we have served and the overwhelming support we’ve had all through the years. No doubt, without all our supporters, friends, customers and vendors we wouldn’t have been where we are today.
In this 4 years, we have launched a walk-in supermarket, a restaurant, a logistics service and we just got nominated as one of the Top 100 SMEs in Nigeria by Connect Nigeria (connectnigeria.com). Nkataa has evolved from being just an online store to a lifestyle; from bringing the supermarket to your doorstep now we are the market.
Join us this month as we celebrate our anniversary. It’s going to be a fun-filled month. Unbeatable deals, Freebies, giveaways, vouchers, engaging content across all our social media platforms, celebrations at our Bukka and a whole lot more. This month will also host our annual football tournament, The Nkataa Cup. This promises to be an exciting day of fun, food, shopping, networking and soccer of course. Your favourite Abuja vendors will be available to serve you as well.
