Ramzi Yamusah, a young entrepreneur from Ghana, is determined to become the “king of African hospitality.” Yamusah, who graduated from Northeastern University in 2014, founded Lifestyle Experiences Holdings, which currently owns three restaurants in Accra, Ghana. However, he aspires to expand beyond restaurants and to promote unforgettable experiences for visitors to Africa and beyond. Yamusah believes that hospitality is all about community, which he describes as the foundation of African culture. He credits his father for instilling a strong work ethic and his mother for emphasizing the importance of maintaining high integrity in business.
Raised in Ghanaian entrepreneur and Germany, Yamusah chose to attend Northeastern because of its location in Boston and co-op program, which provided him with practical experience in addition to his academic studies. He majored in biology and minored in business, completing his co-op at The Wyss Institute at Harvard University. After graduating, Yamusah founded a tech startup that offered on-demand valet parking in Boston before returning to school to study business finance from Brunel University in London. He then returned to Ghana as a general manager at an oil and gas services company and his family’s hotel and real estate business, Yamusah Group.
In 2017, Yamusah launched his first restaurant, Vine, which serves Afro-Mediterranean food. Despite having no experience in the restaurant industry, he persevered through the challenges and has since opened two more restaurants. He hopes to continue expanding his business and promoting African hospitality worldwide.
