Dream is now reality for Mr. & Mrs. Peter and Jessie Massaquoi, residents of the USA who have acquired resources and returned home to invest in Liberia, create jobs, and empower young people by establishing the J. Mass Group of Companies.
On Tuesday July 20, 2021, one of the branches of their company, Jessie’s Bar and Restaurant officially opened in Liberia in the densely populated community of Neezoe in Paynesville.
It is classic and a place to give that special treat to someone or spend some quality time reflecting and chilling as you listen to good vibes and enjoy delicious cocktails, and yummy dishes for affordable prices.
To serve the people of Liberia promptly, the company is also engaging in delivery of delicious food and drinks.
At the official ceremony, Mrs. Jerusha Masaquo said their quest is to improve the entertainment, bar and restaurant sectors and called on others to invest in Liberia .
According to her, visiting other countries and seeing the level of development and services provided at bars and restaurants, it was prudent that they invest in Liberia, which she believed will support the economy through job creation for young people.
The facilities according to Mrs. Massaquoi will also be used for other celebrations such as weddings, birthdays, meetings, etc. “Our business place is good for wedding events, birthday celebrations, meetings and catering. We also deliver food in Paynesville and its adjacent communities,” She noted .
She continues, “We’re aware of the COVID-19 pandemic, but we think it is the right time to invest in Liberia to help support the government through the private sector. We believed that during a crisis people need food.”
The opening event was attended by well-meaning Liberians including friends; and the cutting of the ribbon to the facility was done by Atty. Uria S.Goll and Roland Martin, who in separate remarks lauded Mr. & Mrs. Massaquoi for such a huge investment.
All fingers are now pointing to the yellow giant size decorated building and flashing colors lights that are giving another classic look to the Neezoe community in Paynesville.
Feeling fulfilled that one of his company’s branches has opened in Liberia, Mr. Peter Massaquoi, who is also an insurance guru in the USA said, Liberia’s climate is rich for investment and called on Liberians to return home and invest in various sectors .
He assured customers that their certification is a top priority, and urged all to visit and experience the level of services and care they are offering.
Mr. Massaquoi who is also the CEO of the Peter Massaquoi Insurance Agency LLC in the USA also said, currently, they are providing jobs to over 30 young people in Liberia and are also providing assistance to other seeking handouts.
He also disclosed that live musical band and other recreational activities will be held at the facilities.
