"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.


Our goal is to get people to Eat Different. Eat Different means patronizing Black Owned Restaurants to help circulate our dollars within our culture. Practice Ujamaa to share wealth and work to help create self-reliance.
