And it’s not just ethnic restaurants that have sprung from the entrepreneurial imagination of Caribbean immigrants. Across the state there are also small Caribbean-owned construction and moving companies, barber and auto-repair shops and doctors and dentists with their own practices. Economist and Northeastern University professor Barry Bluestone said that is par for course.
“Our research has shown that we have quite an entrepreneurial spirit among our immigrant labor from all over the world, but particularly from the Caribbean,” he said.
