A Chick-fil-A location is currently in the works for Patterson. Mayor Rodney Grogan made the announcement at Wednesday’s St. Mary Parish Chamber of Commerce luncheon. Grogan was one of several speakers including each of the Parish’s mayors, a representative of the Bayou Vista Recreation District and Parish President David Hanagriff.
Grogan said the contract is still pending, but Chick-fil-A would join several establishments either already opened or currently being planned for Patterson. Those include a new Pizza Hut, Boost Mobile, The Office Bar & Grill and others.
Morgan City is also home to new retail businesses including CC’s Coffee House, which opens on Thursday of this week, in addition to Orange Leaf Yogurt and a new Verizon Wireless Store. That development is located on Highway 70 near Teche Regional Medical Center.
Franklin is also seeing its share of new businesses, including a new donut shop which recently opened, and a Fred’s Super Dollar Store currently under construction.
