PHOTOS – The Man Who Owns Kilimanjaro Restaurant.. That Flashy New, Huge Eatery on Kimathi Street

May 25, 2016

There’s a new restaurant in town. Kilimanjaro Jamia was officially opened yesterday in a luncheon attended by the who’s who Somali in government, media and business.
Majority Leader Aden Duale, Kamukunji MP Yusuf Hassan, Nominated MP Abdi Noor, Johnson Sakaja, Wajir Governor Ahmed Abdullahi; media personalities Nimrod Taabu, Jamila Mohammed, Trevor Ombija among many other influential guests were in attendance.
Kilimanjaro Jamia is located along Kimathi street opposite Safaricom Shop. It sits right next to Java House, making the renown restaurant chain pale in comparison by sheer size.
According to information on Twitter, it will be opened to the public today. Pictures have been making their way online, and it looks like a really classy and huge joint.
We’re glad to see Kenyans waking up and moving away from the single branch mentality. Nairobi Java House recently re-branded to Java House, to enable rapid expansion across the region. We’re also seeing lesser known brands adopt similar business strategy.
Kilimanjaro for instance just recently opened another branch along Moi Avenue (which by the way makes some great smoothies). They also have another outlet in Eastleigh.
The man who owns this fast rising hotel chain goes by the name Haji Yasin. He is not exactly a household name, but is slowly building a reputable restaurant chain. It may not be as huge a chain as KFC yet, but you can bet it offers heart friendlier options.
Here he is with Kamkunji MP Yusuf Hassan

Please, talk to your local mandazi place owner. Tell him/her to expand and perhaps we’ll create our own Colonel Sanders.
