Exploring Life & Business with Andrews Samuka of Coyote Mexican Cuisine

Today we’d like to introduce you to Andrews Samuka.

Hi Andrews, can you start by introducing yourself? We’d love to learn more about how you got to where you are today?
It all started in West Africa on March 23rd, 1984, in Liberia 🇱🇷. I was blessed to come to America in 1993 with 2 older sisters after surviving the beginning of my country’s 16yrs brutal and Barbaric civil war. I landed in New York, Staten Island. My mother did everything possible to get us out of the civil war. I later moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota, in 1998. I later worked and got into the entertainment business and started my first business “PIFF ENTERTAINMENT LLC; then, I started bringing in major celebrities and became the biggest African promoter in Minnesota by 2008. I opened my second business, “Exclusive Events Center. “Then I worked my way up and opened my third business, “City AFRIQUE African cuisine restaurant, “in 2010. I worked my way up and opened my fourth business, “Total Relaxation Therapeutic Massage spa, “in 2012; in 2017, I moved to Arizona after several visits and fell in love with everything about ARIZONA. I started looking for a restaurant space but wasn’t successful; then, I focused on building my network for several yrs till 2019. I started looking for a venue again till I found my NEW RESTAURANT SPACE, “COYOTE MEXICAN FUSION CUISINE, “and blessed to be able to serve this fantastic community with our Authentic Mexican meals.

We all face challenges, but looking back, would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
It wasn’t a smooth road, especially dealing with so many “NO’s, “I still pushed forward and believed.
