BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — VooDoo BBQ & Grill has signed a deal on Monday, Dec. 10 to open a new location in Perkins Rowe.
The Louisiana-based restaurant chain hopes to open the new location by the end of February 2013. The company will occupy the space next to the movie complex.
"We've been aggressively expanding in other states this year, but this is a great move to shore up our solid foundation in our home state," Tony Avila, VooDoo BBQ CEO, said. "Perkins Rowe is a unique development with a tremendous amount of foot and vehicular traffic and potential for even more, so we're excited about this new store."
VooDoo BBQ’s first location was opened in New Orleans on Mardi Gras Day 2002. The company now has 57 locations in six states. The Perkins Rowe location will be the third in Baton Rouge and the 12th in Louisiana.
