SCOTT — The Best Stop Supermarket held a groundbreaking ceremony on Thursday on their new wholesale facility in Scott.
The 15,000-square-foot facility will cost $6 million and take up to 10 months to complete, according to the owners. For the past thirty years The Best Stop Supermarket has served the area and the company sees it as a way to give back to the community and share what makes Scott the boudin capital.
The facility is part of the Best Stop's expansion to start offering its boudin and other smoked meats to restaurants, bars and grocery stores in Louisiana.
"We're building this process for our community that we hope to increase our economic development here in Scott and really truly
showing the world that we are the boudin capital of the world," Financial Manger Penny Gennuso said.
The Best Stop says that it is a great opportunity to share their boudin and culture with the rest of the world.
