Across many African cities, one of the thriving ventures is the restaurant business. However, access to cheap farm produce remains a challenge and has led to the collapse of many restaurants and hotels. This is because many of the restaurants do not have direct links with farmers in order to purchase farm produce at a relatively cheaper price.
Restaurant managers turn to rely on markets in big cities for materials which in the end, result in the high cost of food sold. In situations where the business is not able to break even or make a profit, the business turns to collapse as a result of cost overruns.
