Mr Ayodele Ifaturoti, a business mogul with many years of experience in the oil and gas industry and a tremendous project management record found himself late for an event one evening where he was honoured to be one of the guest speakers on “Youth development”. The reason he was late was he just returned from a site inspection for a new building project which had already commenced and his car was filled with site dust and needed washing. He also needed to stop at his barbers to get a decent hair cut so he could look nice for the event, not to talk about him not eating. Little as these actions seemed, they enabled to make him late for the event.
Being upset about the situation he found himself in, as he explained to his friends who knew him as a “master of time”, a new idea struck his mind. Not one that instantly produces “seven figures”, but one that would over time add value to the communities and help solve a long lasting problem of time management among residents. This idea became his next project and as discouraging as it seemed, he stayed focus to the course, because he knew that this was the kind of project every community needs at a time like this.
Reminded of how difficult it is to start a company from scratch and get to a successful point like they had done with previous companies, he never derailed from the plan. He rather put a wonderful team together and after series of brain storming sessions “Oscars” was born.
Oscars was designed to be a community service centre that focuses on how to serve those that reside around it to the best of its capacity while making sure they don’t lose a second on the clock in carrying out their regular daily activities. This is the idea that we hope would re-define the way things are done in our lives.
Oscars is the first of its kind and we hope that in years from now that we would be able to share this beautiful innovation with other neighbouring communities and then with other states in the country. I expect Oscars to become a national carwash brand, a household eatery and a general hair solution all at the same time. Start-ups around the Lekki axis, have begun to offer Oscars car wash to its employees as a reimbursable benefit. In the long-run, we believe Oscars would become “the Microsoft of services.” But for now, the company remains tightly focused on customer’s satisfaction.
