It all started with a patty. When Ephraim and Mavis Hawthorne would prepare their family's recipe for the traditional Jamaican meal in their St. Andrew's bakery, their son Lowell would follow along. He would watch studiously as his parents filled golden pastry pockets with steamy mouthfuls of jerk chicken, spicy beef, curried shrimp, soy, or veggies, memorizing the feel and consistency of the patties and the mouthwatering smell gradually filling the warm kitchen. Lowell and his siblings crafted a well-rounded menu from their family’s still-secret recipes and took it to the Bronx, where they opened the first Golden Krust restaurant in 1989. Since then, the popular Caribbean chain has spread over nine states, and Lowell's business savvy has earned him recognition, including an Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year award and a thumbs-ups from every Fortune magazine in his doctor’s office. The Hawthorne siblings have shared their success with both the American and Caribbean communities, creating a foundation in honor of their parents that grants college scholarships and sponsors educational programs.
