Welcome to The Beancake Company

Dreams! We all have them. We imagine our hopes for the future; where we want to take our lives; things we want to accomplish. I am a lover of foods from all cultures and I’d always believed that someday I would start and run a successful food company. For the longest time my dream remained just that — a dream — while I worked in the corporate world as a nursing home administrator.

My wife always encouraged me to pursue my aspirations; to take a chance with the belief that it is better to try and fail than to never try. Then came 9/11 and that realization that we all have one life to live, and that life is short and unpredictable. And I thought that I had better seize the day.

In June 2002, we started The Beancake Company with the goal of bringing some of the wonderful foods I grew up enjoying in western Nigeria to the American table.

Our Mission
The Beancake Company is dedicated to bringing the fantastic foods of western Africa to the American palate. Our goal is to educate the public about the tasty, satisfying, and healthy benefits of these offerings.
