Today, Golden Krust Caribbean Bakery & Grill operates a chain of over 100 Restaurants in nine states (New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Florida, Maryland, North Carolina and Massachusetts) with several other Restaurants under construction. As it moves from being a segment industry to a major player in the quick service industry, the company´s plans is to open an additional 250 stores within the next five years in the United States, Europe, Canada and the Caribbean
