Grubido's journey began with the creative vision of Chef Creative Kavachi, during her final year at the Hilton College of Hotel and Restaurant Management at the University of Houston. Initially conceived as a food truck project to bring West African cuisine closer to Houstonians, Chef Kavachi soon pivoted to establish a unique platform, Grubido. This platform's mission was clear: to connect more people, particularly Houstonians, with the diverse world of African food and beverage establishments. It's a story of culinary passion and a commitment to making African flavors more accessible and appreciated.
At Grubido, we are dedicated to creating a comprehensive platform that aspires to become the foremost resource for the African diaspora, including African Latina and African Caribbean communities, within the vibrant landscape of the food and beverage industry. Our mission is to offer a directory, along with robust support systems, to empower and fortify our African community, all while curating captivating content.
Grubido is fueled by a deep-seated passion for exceptional cuisine, collaborative learning, and fostering global partnerships.
