About Nimota

Nimota Salami is an Atlanta chef and entrepreneur.

Before she immigrated from Nigeria, she studied catering and hotel management at Kwara State Polytechnic and worked professionally as a hotel caterer and manager. When she moved to Chicago, she gave up her job to pursue nursing as a means to support herself financially.


She never gave up the hope that she would eventually work in the food industry again. Eventually, from the inspiration of a friend, she started testing out her own West African sauces. From there, Royal Nigerian Foods was born in 2022 in Atlanta, Georgia.
