Jamaican Café Cuisine was birth from the idea of many years of entrepreneurship as a youngster attending Elementary school and had to assist my mom in providing the basic necessities for myself and siblings. As I journeyed through high school I became more efficient in marketing many different products and odd jobs for visiting tourists to Jamaica. I would get anything they need for marginal profits if it was not offered in the hotel. It was during this time I met two gentlemen with whom I have now shared friendships for over 24 years. One of whom has mentored me over these years.
By the time I got to 8th grade I was making enough money to take care of all my school supplies ,help around the home ,and a little bit to spare sometimes. My mother on the other hand works in the factory as a seamstress during the week and sold other items at the market on weekends. After doing so she quit the factory and became self employed as a full time seamstress, which she still does until today. During the off seasons we would visit an annual festival in the hills of St. Elizabeth, called Accompony Town. There both of us would prepare and sell food and beverages to customers over a 2 day period, which we did for over 5 consecutively years.
When life becomes tedious and that was not enough due its seasonal tenure we started cooking and serving food at a construction site for the workers. Shortly after a new and bigger construction project started we erected a permanent structure where my mom continued for an extended period of time to prepare food and beverages to hundreds of construction workers . I shared my story because my passion for being a business owner and that of a restaurant did not just appear prematurely; however, it was nurtured with years of hard work and finally became a reality. I truly embrace the slogan that" everyone is a customer and deserves the utmost attention "which is one of our hallmarks at Jamaican Café Cuisine.
Therefore ,at Jamaican Café Cuisine we pride ourselves in giving back to the community. We will continue the gift of giving because our communities are our greatest assets , and backbone of our business and its success. - Nyron Cameron - Owner
