About Us
 
 
 

The name JOFEL is derived from its directors' first names, JOSEPH & FELICIA. JOFEL Catering Services Limited like many institutions, started as a snack shop in 1982 at Roman Hill in Kumasi. Buoyed by the determination of two individuals to make a difference in the lives of their customers, lunch services were added so as to cater for the numerous store owners in the Roman Hill area.

Jofel relocated to the Mobil Filling Station at the Old Bekwai Roundabout for about 1 year before being asked by the management of Mobil to vacant the Restaurant site. All Kitchen equipment, crockery and furniture were moved to the Directors residence while a new site was acquired to start developing a new structure.
After about two years a make shift structure was develop just adjacent to the Ridgeway Bungalows of the Military Barracks. This structure with time became the best eating and entertainment joint in Kumasi from 1986 through 1990. In 1990, Jofel again was asked to move from that site since the land was earmarked to be a public park. The Structure which had then develop to house Garden, 2 Mini bars, a Restaurant and Band stand were razed down by bulldozers one sunny afternoon.

Not perturbed by another misfortune and with the help of trusted friends and family, Jofel relocated to Asokwa in the former Kwality Restaurant Building. A little far away from the city center but the numerous clientele never forgot Jofel’s brand of service delivery and still continued to patronize services. It should be worth noted that Jofel received its first National award as the Best Restaurant just before finally moving to its current location.

Jofel Catering Services limited was registered as  a limited liability company under the companies code (Act 179) in 1993 and issued with a certificate to commence business in the same year.  For the past 33 years, the dream of a man and wife has matured into a very thriving catering establishment.

During the course of the period, the company has also had three branches, one in Kumasi and then in Accra and until recently Anyinam in the Eastern Region of Ghana. The Anyinam branch is the only surviving branch now.
