In late 1981 Charis Onabowale the Group Managing Director turned what was a gift into the billion naira company that now bears the registered name Mama Cass Restaurant Limited. The gift was a small shop at Alade market in Allen where she sold pastries in a small storage box to workers and other shop owners while she was still employed.
She noticed how the white collared workers would stop at the buka women along the road sides, sling their ties over their shoulder and enjoy some home cooked traditional food. This is how the Mama Cass as you know started, she realised that there was a need for home cooked food in a cleaner environment, which had to be served fast and fresh.
In November 1983 she got her first restaurant space on Allen which even included dancing in those days, that first outlet carried for the first time "Mama Cass Cafeteria".
Today, there are Mama Cass Restaurant outlets strategically placed throughout Lagos, Ogun, Edo, Abuja and the United Kingdom, Serving quality food as we did when it was cooked in our home kitchen.
In addition, the group has expanded into industrial canteen management, private function catering and the high volume bread industry.
