Restaurateurs and jerk chicken vendors in Montego Bay, St James are expressing optimism that the Government’s after curfew quick-service delivery system will result in an uptick in business.
The E-commerce National Delivery System (ENDS) pilot project, will was rolled out in Portmore, St Catherine last weekend, is to make its way to Montego Bay and Kingston this weekend as the Government expands the initiative.
Dwayne Senior, a jerk chicken vendor who plies his trade along Montego Bay’s Jimmy Cliff Boulevard, formerly known as the Hip Strip, told The Gleaner that ENDS will give small business operators like himself a chance to branch out their services.
“This programme has a good look, and we have to give thanks for it because we small men can get a piece of the pie. I feel good about it and everybody likes it and hopes for it because we had previously heard about it in Portmore so I am definitely looking forward to starting it,” said Senior.
