Jamaica Mi Hungry, a Boston-based Food Truck & Catering company needs YOUR help! We are asking our community, supporters, friends, and people who believe in the Jamaica Mi Hungry brand, to support our mission and help us to take the next leap in our growth: Moving into a Production Kitchen/Base of Operations of our own!
All contributions will go towards the preparation of our new kitchen space which includes minor interior demolition & rebuild, plumbing, equipment and finishing touches for our new home!”
Why does Jamaica Mi Hungry need a kitchen space?
Jamaica Mi Hungry started in 2012 as a private chef, and catering company based out of a small commissary kitchen in Malden, MA. Today, in 2018 we have grown and blossomed into a Food Truck, Restaurant, and Catering Company. For a little over one year we have operated out of a shared kitchen space in Boston. This opportunity has provided us with a space to grow and expand our business enabling us to create systems which have increased our efficiency.
The company has reached a bump in the road: We’ve OUTGROWN the shared kitchen! To keep up with demand, WE NEED a KITCHEN of OUR OWN that allows us unlimited access, so that we can take on all parties- large and small, all year round!
Why THIS space?
Finding a space in Boston that will allow us to have the kitchen that we need, with the equipment we need, and enough parking space to accommodate a growing food truck business is no piece of cake! We have secured a space at the intersection of Jamaica Plain and Roslindale which fit the bill all too perfectly! The location allows us enough space to host outdoor events (YAY!), park the trucks, host the equipment that we need, and it's in a quickly developing area!
The proposed kitchen has city approved design plans and meets zoning code. We will be required to do minor demolition to interior walls, rev-up the electric and plumbing systems, and purchase & install new equipment.
Why iFund Women?
The company has a mission to provide seek, inspire, and empower industry leaders of tomorrow, with a focus on young women who are getting started in the food industry. This past summer we employed a staff of 15 which was over 60% female! We believe that women are natural leaders, but often end up taking the backseat to their masculine counterparts especially in the male-dominated food industry. We are shaking things up! The ladies of Jamaica Mi Hungry DRIVE big food trucks, RUN restaurants, BOOK events, KEEP books, SPEAK UP, INSPIRE and CREATE change for the company's growth, MENTOR, TRAIN, and EMPOWER the team, are INVOLED in the community, SERVE customers, RESOLVE issues, RAISE children and RUN THE WORLD! All with a SMILE ?
