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.

They discovered this the hard way. During their fifth month of operations, the Nairobi-based founders travelled to Kampala to try and expand the business to Uganda. However, their timing couldn’t have been worse. “Volumes spiked that weekend. I don’t know how these things happen. Volumes spiked. Things were being mixed up. People were actually missing their laundry. Stuff was not delivered. There was no water. Everything that can go wrong, went wrong. Everything just fell apart,” says Otieno
