Nollywood And Ghanaian Star, Van Vicker To Open Four Restaurant Branches In Ghana.
Van Vicker who launched his new restaurant, ‘Vantastic Grill’ at Spintex road, a suburb in Accra on January 10, 2022, amidst fanfare from friends, colleagues actors, and actresses, and the general public now plans to open four new branches in Ghana.
Van Vicker had originally intended to open in 2019, but the covid-19 pandemic and the lockdown prevented him from doing so.
During a recent interview, Van Vicker revealed his intentions for the business to Phyllis Ntim.
He said, “The idea was to do more deliveries than a sit-in… then I really don’t need a big space,”
Sooner rather than later, he wants to add extra space outside rather than in the upstairs area of his establishment.
“It will all really depend on how fast we grow, how much capital we raise, or even perhaps there could be people out there who want to purchase a franchise of it in their country,” he said.
Van says Liberia is one nation he will truly like to establish a branch in and that he plans to open in Ghana before leaving the country.
When asked how he came about the name, he said;

“I usually would use the word fantastic… in sometime 2012 I think, it struck me that I could replace the ‘F’ with a ‘V’ since my name already has the ‘a’ and ‘n’ in there. So, when it got to the food bits, I thought okay, how I do incorporate my name in the business because I think it’s something more of who I stand for what I stand for my personal brand how can I incorporate that with the name of the restaurant,” he added.
Even while business at the restaurant is not as strong as it could be, particularly since COVID is still a concern, he is hopeful that things will improve with time.
