Lowell Howard did it. He came to the United States, and pursued the “American Dream” and made it a reality. As the CEO of Golden Krust Caribbean Bakery & Grill, Howard headed the largest Caribbean franchise chain in the US, with more than 120 stores. He didn’t stop there, he gave back to the community that brought him success. Never forgetting where he came from and who supported him, he invested in the community. For example, his Excellence Awards Galas provided scholarships for underserved high school students heading to college.
“Investing in the future, and in the next generation, is the only way to keep dreams, fulfill visions and build legacies,” said Howard. “Golden Krust is proud to continue to invest in our communities, as these communities have welcomed us so warmly and remain the linchpin of our ongoing success.”
The news of Howard’s death is a tough pill to swallow for someone who was raised on Golden Krust, can list more than ten store locations easily, brings patties to her annual holiday work parties and watches the logo pop up as a sponsor on CIN. Mr. Howard, thank you for your golden patties and being an inspiration to many.
