Baqers revolutionizes cake gifting

Baqers revolutionizes cake gifting

It is estimated that there are over 17 million Nigerians living abroad, with that number growing each day. Many people leave their families and friends to pursue their dreams and aspirations, but they often find themselves missing out on important celebrations and milestones back home.

To bridge this gap and help Nigerians stay connected with their loved ones in Nigeria, Baqers, a startup, is poised to provide a unique cake ordering and gifting service, offering high-quality cakes crafted by a network of verified professional bakers across different cities in Nigeria.

The platform partners with Paystack; another fast growing Nigerian company, allows for safe international payments by fast routing delivery technology ensuring that every occasion is celebrated to the fullest.

Baqers, initially launched in Lagos, Nigeria, is now expanding its operations to Abuja and Port Harcourt with plans for further expansion into other key cities across Nigeria.

Nike Majekodunmi, CEO of Baqers, said that the company believes that distance should never hinder love and appreciation.

Ayo Cole, a satisfied Baqers customer living in the United States, said that birthday celebrations have always been an important part of his family tradition, but added that even though he was far away, wanted to feel connected with his family and celebrate with his grandma.

“After reading through some online reviews, I was convinced they could help me put a smile on her face by sending her a beautiful cake and reminding her that distance meant nothing when it comes to showing love and I was thrilled because they delivered as I had expected.

“What I loved most about the service was that it was quick and easy without any hassle”, Cole said.

Cole further encouraged everyone to tap into this unique experience by ordering a cake from Baqers for their loved one.

“After all, nothing says I love you like a delicious cake shared with family and friends”, he said.
