After decades of making some of Acadiana’s finest pralines and most delicious granola, Mary Usner of Miss Mary’s Pralines ‘N Things is ready to retire. She’s looking to sell her business, and the deal comes with everything — all her kitchen equipment (including a 30-quart copper pot and burner), preparation tables, a customer list of almost 1,000 names and addresses, a retail distribution network, a Web site and, of course, the recipes.

It’s turn-key and the perfect business opportunity for an enterprising person or couple. Miss Mary and her husband Larry have worked together on this brand for over 20 years and built a great little cottage industry with potential to grow. If you’re interested, contact her at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. . Her products are a local staple, and we need to keep the brand alive. Lache pas la pacane!
