About Area 509

Reggie has always had a passion for cooking. It started at a young age when he would be in the kitchen with his mother in Haiti. The youngest of three sons, he helped with a variety of chores, but cooking was his favorite. His passion was there!

Early in 2019, Reggie decided to turn a hobby into a business and began the process of building his own food trailer. He wanted his food trailer to feature his authentic Caribbean food while allowing him to travel to different communities and connect with people. By May 2019, he was ready to hit the road! It wasn’t long before menu items like jerk chicken and island shrimp began to capture the tastebuds of the local crowd. Caribbean Taste has since expanded to a full size food truck with a full size food trailer in the works.
