Clint Rennie of Pepper’s Jerk Center at 20 Duke Street in Falmouth is aware of the many plans for the parish itself, which is promised to bring tens of thousands more to the parish each year. Pepper’s wants to be the restaurant of choice for Falmouth’s future.

Day-to-day Business not Affected

Pepper’s, the original Falmouth jerked center is currently being refurbished, although still operating. Work is being done mostly outside of work hours, especially on Sundays. This is to improve the standard of the Falmouth Jamaica restaurant. The expansion work does not affect the day to day running of the business.

Old Slave Property

Pepper’s Jerked Center is set in a former slave quarters. The old property has become rundown over the last few years, but uncertainty over the lease of the business meant that Pepper’s would be taking a gamble if they made improvements. They did not know if and when they would have to vacate the property.

Long Term Lease

Falmouth born Clint Rennie was pleased to announce that Pepper’s has finally landed a long term lease on the property from the owners. He went on to boast that the property at 20 Duke Street is the largest commercial business property in Falmouth town. The way has now been cleared for Pepper’s to invest and make improvements to the prime piece of real estate.
