In 1986, the Chungs set up Hotpie, bought some used patty-making equipment and rented a bay in an industrial area. “We started out on a shoestring,” Dennis Chung said. Building on the taste for patties among South Florida’s Jamaican community, and introducing their products to businesses where Latinos typically buy empanadas, Hotpie began growing as customers tried the patties and came back for more. Today, the company has 25 employees (35 in the winter high season) and six bays at the original site (10,000 square feet).
