There's more than patty-cake going on at Patty King. The Florida company makes Jamaican-style "patties" (meat-filled pastry pies similar to English meat-pies or Spanish empanadas). Made with spices favored in the Caribbean, the patties come in five different flavors -- mild beef, spicy beef, curry chicken, mixed vegetables, and chicken with mixed vegetables. The company's customers include retail and ethnic food stores, club stores, cafeterias, delis, vending companies, and other foodservice operators. A group of Jamaican entrepreneurs founded Patty King in 1997.
