"Akiah is connecting your taste buds with Black Owned Restaurants near you."

- Rev. Arnold Townsend

It all started July 25, 2007. I had this idea of creating an app that will serve my community. While leaving a DJ gig in Richmond, CA (Bay Area) I was getting a lil' hungry and that's when it hit me, a food app. I've used other apps before, but it was like looking for a needle in a haystack. It was that simple, Akiah was created.
