SCOTT, La — After three years of planning and development, The Best Stop distribution facility is scheduled to open for business.
The $6 million 15,000-square-foot facility is USDA-certified to distribute a range of wholesale products throughout all 50 U.S. States.
The wholesale facility will employ between seven and 10 employees, with plans to expand operations and create an estimated 20 new jobs for Lafayette parish.
“The City of Scott is very excited about the wholesale expansion project at The Best Stop,” said Mayor of Scott Jan-Scott Richard. “The economic engines of growth are investment and job creation. The investment [The Best Stop] has placed into our community paired with the additional jobs gives us a huge opportunity to showcase our recognition as the Boudin Capital of the World. ... We look forward to our continued partnership with Best Stop and look forward to the added growth they will bring to our city for years to come.”
