Golden Krust Caribbean Bakery and Grill a privately family owned corporation located in Bronx, New York. They are the manufacturer and distributor of Caribbean food products. Golden Krust is the brain-child of Ephraim and Mavis Hawthorne. The bakery initially started in a rural city of St. Andrew, Jamaica called Border in 1949 .They had no idea that their dream would blossom into a global business with over 120 stores in nine (9) states. In 1989, Lowell along with his wife Lorna, four of his siblings and their spouses pooled all their resources to open the first Golden Krust retail location in Bronx, New York. The five siblings and their spouses then elected Lowell Hawthorne to be their President and CEO. The tight-knit Hawthorne family has built this company over the past twenty four (24) years through hard work, preservation and dedication to success. By 1996 they owned 17 restaurants throughout New York City. The business became so successful that the Hawthorne’s were encouraged to create franchises and they seized the opportunity. In that same year, Golden Krust became the first Caribbean-owned business in the US to be granted a franchised license. Today, Golden Krust Caribbean Bakery & Grill operates a chain of over 100 Restaurants in nine states. There are plans to open an additional 250 stores over the next five years in the U.S., Europe, Canada, and the Caribbean. Even though Golden Krust Caribbean Bakery & Grill faces competition from companies such as Caribbean Food Delights, Royal Caribbean Bakery, and Tower Isles, GKB is still the leading company with majority market stake in America.
