Fisherman’s Cove is building an impressive footprint on the culinary landscape in Brooklyn, and apparently, it’s about to get even more expansive. This restaurant chain just completed an extensive renovation to its flagship store at 2025 Church Avenue, which has doubled the size of the location so that diners could sit and enjoy their meal.
“I like the way they have expanded this location,” said Marcia James, a patron. “I’m sure it would be able to handle the long lines much better, especially in the evenings.”
From its clean, bright yellow interior, to its artsy and jazzy Caribbean flair menu dangling from the ceiling, and the new-age awning hanging on the outside of the building, will be added to all of the Fisherman’s Cove Jamaican Grill locations.
“We have just upgraded our name to Fisherman’s Cove Jamaican Grill and are diligently working to bring all of our locations under one look,” said Kirk Gibson, CEO of the chain. “We’ve perfected consistency with our food, and now we are looking to bring that passion and consistency to our physical appearance. Our motto is consistency, and we are looking forward to doing what we do best in an even bigger way, said Gibson.”
Ever since it opened its doors in 2000, Fisherman’s Cove has been bringing authentic Jamaican cuisine to the residents of Brooklyn. Gibson’s appetite for expansion is not an accident, from the inception of the flagship location, Gibson knew that the market for authentic Jamaican cuisine is a vast one in Brooklyn, the largest concentration of Caribbean nationals in the US, and he plotted a strategic path for the other four locations over the next 14 years in the densely populated Caribbean areas.
Fisherman’s Cove Jamaican Grill is a privately held company that will be elevating the Jamaican cuisine dining experience by franchising its brand not too far in the future.
“I know that we are only beginning to scratch the surface of this huge market in New York, and we have yet to look at Queens, Manhattan and the Bronx where it is highly likely that we’ll be branching out sometime in the future,” said Gibson.
Fisherman’s Cove Jamaican Grill success story Gibson credits to his faith and his deep passion to giving back to the community which has supported him over the years.
