Springfield, MO— Du’Sean Howard, owner of Jamaican Patty Co in Springfield is excited about the future. The Kingston Jamaica native made his journey to our city only after he first made his way to North America via Canada. He settled there with his family for a few years before moving to Minnesota in 2009. Due to the economy at the time, he heard of the job opportunities at Prime Trucking here in Springfield and uprooted his family to move to Springfield MO. Du’Sean completed their training program and gained his commercial trucking license. From there he went on to establish an LLC and started a couple of small business ventures.
It wasn’t until he met a food scientist and was given the opportunity to lease a storefront that he began to think about starting a restaurant focused on promoting the Jamaican patty and it’s cuisine. Du’Sean knew the image that he wanted to put out there. He wanted his restaurant to be a place where people would be comfortable to eat, and hang out.
The truck came after the store restaurant and is used mostly for corporate events, weddings, and parties. Their most popular dishes include: Curry goat and chicken, Oxtails (my personal favorite), Jerk chicken, and their patties that come in 9 different flavors.
This is an MBE-Certified business and their hours of operation are: Monday thru Thursday 11:00 – 6:00 pm; Friday thru Saturday 11:00 – 7:00 pm.
The Jamaican Patty is located at 3439 S Campbell, Springfield, Missouri in the Savannah Square.
