    Sustainable Detroit

    YumVillage is a hybrid food business combining the ghost-kitchen delivery and retail product model with quick-casual dining. Food items sold for delivery, takeout and dine-in are inspired by traditional West African and Caribbean dishes, with a bit of American flare. You’ll find garlic greens, maffe fries, jerk chicken, suya shrimp and grits, ‘peppa soup’ ribs and our crowd favorite, jollof rice. Retail products include dry rubs, traditional spices, sauces, marinades, coffee and loose tea. Customers have the option of dine-in, take-out or delivery, and can also purchase retail products in-person or through delivery. Long-term, YumVillage plans to obtain a liquor license and add beer and wine to the product selection.
