This month talk is all about FOOD! We are hosting the foodie Ahmed Darwish from The Foodies Inc. The Foodies inc is an agency targeted for restaurant lovers and owners alike, who either are hunting for the best bite to eat, or trying to raise awareness for their food business.
The Foodies started as a social platform for food lovers in Saudi Arabia. The idea started by Ahmed Darwish in 2012 as a Whatsapp Group called "The Foodies Talk" to gather food lovers, chefs, and restaurant owners. In March 2016 , the Whatsapp group transformed into social media existence to invade the world of social media by creating accounts on Snapchat, Instagram, and soon after : Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.
