Golden Krust Franchise

The Golden Krust Caribbean Bakery is known for its Caribbean style pastries and savory dishes and is an excellent franchise option for those entrepreneurs interested in opening a restaurant specializing in Caribbean cuisine.

The Golden Krust Franchise was first founded in 1989 and has been franchising since 1996.

Its homebase is in Park Avenue in the Bronx New York and the franchisor currently has 120 employees with 10 in the franchise department. The Golden Krust vision is to provide the taste of the carribean to the world and has been doing so through the service of authentic and tasty Jamaican patties. The company believes that the customers are the core to their success and they continually work on new and innovative ways to develop their service to the customers.

The franchise is now looking for franchisees, as well as outside the US such as in Eastern Europe and Canada. If you are interested in applying for a Golden Krust franchise then it is important to have the clear drive to achieve in the company and the motivation to bring it to success.
