The idea for Paul Kihiko’s fast-food restaurant brand Wing It, which specialises in chicken wings, was born over a lunch with friends. “When the waiter came to the table with the menu, it had all the usual items: burgers, chicken, everything. But everybody somehow decided to take chicken wings – the whole table. So I thought, why not start something because it’s a business I have seen working very well in Europe and the US. It’s a huge industry.” Today, Wing It has two restaurants in the Galleria and The Hub shopping malls in Kenya’s capital Nairobi. The company offers chicken wings in 15 flavours, which Kihiko himself created through experimenting with different recipes.
