FOODICTION located in Windhoek recently opened its doors on a daily basis. It offers something different in the form of real good home-cooked meals.
Foodiction is a take-away establishment that offers fast food like fries, hotdogs, etc., and home-cooked meals for any occasion. They also offer catering and buffets for parties, conferences and gatherings.
“Served with a modern twist, our refreshing presentation brings a hint of fun to any buffet table. Our vast variety means your guests are in for a delightful feast. We are all about flavours and with us you will have something to talk about after every meal,” owner Selma Neshiko Kimorah, a former artist, entertainment journalist and Air Namibia staff member said.
She opened the business on a daily basis after losing her full-time job.
“My food business has been around for over two years now, but before it was just a weekend thing. Often I would also sell at expos. My business became a daily thing after Air Namibia got liquidated. I then decided to offer good food on a daily basis,” she said.
She said she was inspired to expand her company because she wanted to put her talents to good use and because she wanted to do something for herself.
“I am one of those people who don't like feeling sorry for myself. I never allow unfortunate situations to take over my life. So I'll rather take advantage of things that I am passionate about to do something for myself. Honestly the business took me out of a situation and added excitement to my life,” she said.
Kimorah said since she was a little girl she has always been cooking and trying out something new to surprise her loved ones.
“Growing up I used to love trying out different recipes. I would also mix different spices to create a different and even better taste. It was exciting to me because every time I try something new it gets better.
“Later I assisted a friend who did catering and this is actually how my interest for the industry grew. When you have interest in something you can achieve more than you think,” she said.
Kimorah urges people who have also lost jobs during the pandemic to keep their heads up and use every opportunity to create something else for themselves.
“Nobody is going to do it for you. Do not allow stress to take over your life. Take charge of yourself and start little. Write down things you are passionate about and try to create something around that. It will be hard at first, but just keep pushing,” she said.
