Our Story

Where It All Began

The vision for Hotpot Jamaican Restaurant and Take Out started in 2017 as Head Chef and Co-Founder Carlus Osmond sat in the lunchroom at his car detailing job.

Every day for lunch, Carlus would bring leftovers from the previous night’s dinner. Each meal was a well-made, authentic Jamaican meal that left co-workers curious to try. Cow Foot Soup, Coconut Curry Shrimp with Rice and Peas? It was a far cry from his co-worker’s regular Sandwiches, Pizzas, and Burgers. As Carlus was eager to share his culture, he couldn’t think of a better way to connect than offering them some of his food made using original Jamaican recipes. After sharing his food with his co-workers, the demand for Jamaican cuisine became evident. Carlus was getting requests almost daily by his co-workers to bring in any “extra” food for them.

Overwhelmed by all the requests for Jamaican food, Carlus offered to take pre-orders through the week and prepare meals for his co-workers on Saturdays only. Little did Carlus know, the leftover lunches and extra boxes ordered for take-home led to husbands, wives, friends, and family of his co-workers all wanting a try at this delicious Jamaican food.

Hotpot Jamaican Carlus Osmond

The Saturday orders just kept growing and growing, and it became clear that there was a real demand for the taste of authentic Jamaican food. With the idea of serving the entire community and making delicious Jamaican food available for everyone, a plan for Hotpot Jamaican Restaurant was devised!
