Naples couple opens food truck after quitting jobs during height of COVID
FORT MYERS, Fla.– JD and Jennifer Damas weren’t sure if they made the right decision when they made a bold move last spring.
Both decided to quit their jobs and pursue something new.
JD had previously worked as a head chef at a Fort Myers Beach restaurant while Jennifer was a registered nurse.
Together, they started a food truck called the “Food Rock” on the road toward JD’s ultimate dream of opening his own restaurant.
“Yes there’s fear,” JD admitted. “But I’m not going to let fear crush my dream.”
The Food Rock travels across Southwest Florida and caters private events. The couple has already secured a location for their soon-to-be-opened restaurant.
JD and Jennifer are the parents of five children and live in Naples.
A native of Haiti, JD worked his way through the culinary ranks from starting as a cook at a Long John Silvers.
“We’re building something together,” Jennifer said. “And that’s what makes it special.”
