Our favourite thing to do together is eating! So creating a business around food, was the ultimate adventure. YamUp initially began as a personal shopper and food delivery service. Once we got a mentor on board, did our market research and studied current mobile app trends, we decided to build an app that will provide a comprehensive service and more.
Taking what is a tradition in most African and Caribbean homes in this direction was clearly the next step and a push past our direct competitors. It also provided the simplicity experienced by users of the Big 6 technological platforms. Once we got the right formula for our audience's needs, we built the app to match.
