Lowell Hawthorne, CEO and founder of Golden Krust Caribbean Bakery & Grill, announced that the company would revive its Franchise Advisory Council.

“I am convinced that with a collaborative group of movers and shakers within the system, we can move the organization on to even greater heights,” Hawthorne says.

Hawthorne named long-standing franchisee, Stanley Dennis, as chairman of the Franchise Advisory Board. “Stanley Dennis is the right man to spearhead this arm of Golden Krust—a veteran GK franchisee who shares our core values, he possesses the leadership, integrity, and sincerity needed to partner with GK corporate on this initiative,” Hawthorne says.

As chairman of the Franchise Advisory Board, Dennis will direct the board’s role of providing advice and direction and acting as the business “hub” that connects the franchisees to Golden Krust Corporate.

Golden Krust is a family-operated business and is the nation’s largest Caribbean-themed franchise with 120 restaurants in nine states. Golden Krust has brought food lovers a taste of the Caribbean for over twenty years through the franchises and Jamaican patties being sold in grocery stores throughout the East Coast. This summer, Golden Krust will introduce a new line of Caribbean sauces that Hawthorne has developed.
