He explained that Prananet, the company behind the initiative, the ICT arm of the Nimco Group, would be leveraging on Nimco Group’s culture of quality service delivery to make a difference in the nation’s cake industry.
Elutade explained that the company’s staff, especially the bakers, have been duly certified, haven gone through a series of training to make them exceptional in the business. He said these bakers are in every part of the country to effectively offer value for customers, adding, “What we are simply doing with CakeStore9ja is to take off the burden of having to go from one store to the other in search of cakes from the consumers. With the new online cake store, all that is required of a customer is to place his order, and get such order delivered to him in the comfort of his home or office.”
The director also said the company had partnered with NAFDAC and other consumer protection bodies to ensure its cakes are healthy for consumption.
