About TFC

The birth of De-Tastee Fried Chicken Limited is a translation of an idea conceived by an industrious woman, Mrs. Olayinka Pamela Adedayo, which to the glory of God has transformed into a big organization and a great fortune not only for the owners, but also to thousand of families across Nigeria and the larger society as a whole. In the quest to actualize the idea, she established Tastee Pot in 1989 to render outdoor catering services to distinguished and discerning clientele across Nigeria.

Tastee Pot has over the years become the outdoor caterer of first choice, serving so many reputable individuals and organizations. The desire of Mrs. Olayinka Adedayo to meet the yearnings of Nigerians, especially Lagosians for qualitative fast food service, considering her experience in Kentucky Fried Chicken, where she worked between 1978 and 1980 as a Manager, led to the diversification into fast food service with the establishment of De Tastee Fried Chicken Ltd in 1996. The coming on stream of Tastee Fried Chicken undoubtedly revolutionized the concept of fast food service in Nigeria.

The advent of the eatery with new concept of service, qualitative products, and exquisite ambience, became a reference point, but nonetheless, the company still up till today maintains an unusual standard of the concept of service. Tastee Fried Chicken which is undisputably highly reputed in Nigeria for quality fast food service has at present nine outlets, in metropolitan parts of Lagos, where an array of delicious meals and snacks are offered to delight the populace. The company has two other outlets nearing completion in Lagos. Our success over the years is attributable to our highly skilled labour, use of qualitative inputs, and combination of environmental friendly production technologies.
