Juici Jerk is a black-owned family business founded in 2017 in a household kitchen in Tooting (South West London) by two brothers, Troy and Jarrell Johnson who hung up their gloves in the retail & hospitality industry to chase their passion for Caribbean cuisine.
Combining a British and West-Indian heritage, the duo aims to offer a Contemporary Caribbean dining experience with an urban twist.
Director of Juici Jerk, Troy Johnson said: “Eating amongst friends and family is a massive part of our tradition and food in general is what brings our whole family together.’
He added: ‘With the Covid-19 pandemic and lockdown, many families have been unable to dine together so that’s why we have launched our cook at home DIY kits – to bring traditional elements of our culture to people all round the UK, giving them a taste of our West Indian heritage and flavours they can usually only find at their favourite Caribbean restaurants.’
