Spurred by a trip to New York with his wife, Ryan Thibodeaux decided to master the art of the bagel.
After having success at the Hub City Farmers Market for over a year now, Ryan Thibodeaux has opened Thibodoughs on the corner of Eraste Landry and Ambassador Caffery.
Spurred by a trip to New York with his wife, Thibodeaux, already an active baker at home, decided to master the art of the bagel. The dough is a thick and complicated one and Thibodoughs rolls each bagel by hand, eschewing a bagel cutter for the tender, traditional touch. Thibodoughs mixes its own cream cheese, which includes plain, blueberry, strawberry and vegetable.
While they have only been open a few weeks Thibodeaux is seeing signs of a lot of traffic coming his way. The shop is located near Ambassador Caffery and I-10 so Acadiana commuters have an easy place to stop for breakfast and some coffee.
Thibodoughs also has other breads like muffins and cinnamon loaves. Kolaches made from Cajun sausage are available as well.
Frank’s Casing Crew, now doing business as Frank’s International, will make its final appearance on ABiz’s list of the Top 50 Privately Held Companies in Acadiana this year, and once again, it will likely be at the top with more than $1 billion in annual revenues. The 75-year-old company specializing in tubular fabrication and installation services to the oil and gas industry plans to go public this year.
The defeat, or rather highjacking of House Bill 420 in the final days of this year's Legislative Session, say Reps. Vincent Pierre and Terry Landry, is the result of the propaganda spread by one unidentified local media outlet and an unnamed former state Representative, but nothing to do with the original legislation's lack of checks, balances or details.
