In 1923, J. P. Rouse opened City Produce Center in Thibodaux, Louisiana. The produce company distributed food from local farmers in Lafourche and Terrebone Parishes and the French Market in New Orleans to retailers across the United States. In 1960, J. P.'s son, Anthony, partnered with his cousin, Ciro DiMarco, to open a 7,000-square-foot grocery in Houma, Louisiana. Throughout the '70s, the grocery expanded, opening more stores in Houma as well as in Thibodaux and Raceland. In the '80s, the company expanded to Morgan City, Cut Off, and Lockport in South Louisiana. With the opening of the store in Metairie in 1995, Rouses became the largest independent grocer in Louisiana. In 2003, Rouses opened a larger store, a 54,000-foot showroom, in Covington. More stores for St. Tammany Parish followed with an opening in Mandeville in 2005 and one in Slidell in 2006. Rouses doubled in size when, in 2007, after the devastation caused by hurricanes Rita and Katrina, it acquired A&P's Southern Division which consisted of 17 Sav-A-Center stores including stores in New Orleans and Mississippi. In 2013, Rouses expanded into Alabama with the acquisition of six Belle foods stores in the Mobile area. In 2016, Rouses acquired nine LeBlanc's Food Stores in the Baton Rouge area. The Rouses chain of grocery stores now provides jobs for more than 5,000 people across Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama.
Rouses follows J. P.'s tradition of buying fresh local produce and wild caught shrimp. They have their own smoke houses, sausage kitchens, and seafood boiling rooms right in their stores to keep everything as fresh as possible. For another tradition, J. P.'s son Anthony began developing recipes for andouille, boudin, and Cajun dishes in a shed behind his house when he opened the first grocery. Rouses continues to prepare foods for carry out catering, but in addition, if you need inspiration for a Cajun dish or wonderful Southern cooking, visit the recipe section of Rouses website. You will find a long list of ideas to try. You can also attend cooking classes and demonstrations at your local Rouses that are conducted by Rouses own Chef Nino or by Rouses local vendors or guest chefs. For a quick demonstration, watch this Rouses YouTube video entitled Hatch Chile Burgers for jazzy instructions that takes less than a minute to show you how to make them.
As involved as Rouses is with supporting local charities, farmers, fishers, and food-related businesses, they are also involved in supporting local culture and events. They are the official grocer of the New Orleans Pelicans, and they sponsor the Bayou Chapter of the LRA Culinary showcase, Wharf Uncorked, Best of the Bayou, the WWII Museum AirPower Expo, CCA Louisiana, Ragin’ Cajun Athletics, and the Colonel Athletic Association.
