Ian Bailey, born and raised in Portmore, Jamaica, has been living in Houston, Texas for several years. After realizing the need for truly authentic Jamaican and Caribbean styled food options, Ian launched his dream: a mobile food truck that delivers the flavor and One Love spirit of the Caribbean in an affordable way.
Ian’s experiences and skills in the restaurant business came from seeing his mother single-handedly run a Bar/Restaurant for over 30 years. As a young man he was required to learn the ins and outs of the business so he could one day take over. The main eye opener came when Ian visited his father who ran a Jerk Stand in the Bronx, NY. Ian’s first reaction was enthusiasm when he saw the amount of people that showed up just to taste the Jerk chicken and to enjoy the reggae music. Fast forward to today, the concept that good food and reggae brings people together is what Jamaica Fusion I-land Grill is all about.
