Golden Krust founder found dead inside factory

Video Hawthorne

In 1989, Lowell and his wife Lorna, along with four of his siblings and their spouses, pooled all their resources together to open the first Golden Krust retail location.

"[It's] very, very sad because we were packing the goodie bags [for the gala] with the Golden Krust buns and newsletter when I got the call".

The company now has more than 120 outlets in nine states, and sells its beef patties in more than 20,000 supermarkets, as well as to the city school system, state penal system and USA military, according to a news release issued a year ago.

"Golden Krust was a formative part of my childhood and adolescence as we lived across the street from the one in Brooklyn", @JadoreCas tweeted.

Over the next 28 years, Golden Krust expanded to some 120 franchises across the USA, selling beef patties and jerk chicken under the motto, "We take the taste of the Caribbean to the world".

And nine points from those games will be a must, if they are to remain in the title race. All the managers want to help their players because if they play bad we'll be sacked.

Chef's Choice CEO Pat Russo, who told the Daily News he has worked with Hawthorne for the past two decades, was similarly caught off guard. They started selling those delicious beef patties at the store on E. Gun Hill Rd in NY.

The plan was to consolidate the company's legal and corporate offices in a new 100,000-square-foot building that would house a factory to turn out Golden Krust patties, breads and pastries.

In 2012, Hawthorne published his memoir titled, "The Baker's Son". He even appeared on the CBS reality show "Undercover Boss ," in which owners go to work in disguise at their own companies in order to see what life is like for their employees. He takes care of his employees. But a post on Hawthorne's Facebook page, now deleted, suggested he had been thinking about it for several days.

Rest in power Lowell Hawthorne. "I was always in search of the next honest means to make a dollar", Hawthorne wrote. Like many transplanted Caribbean nationals, I struggled to work and raise a family. "I can only thank God for everything I have achieved, and if my story can inspire others to rise up and give it a do, then I would have succeeded in doing something meaningful", he stated.
