ROUSES TO MOVE HEADQUARTERS TO HOUMA

Rouses Markets, a family-owned local grocer is moving its headquarters from Lafourche to Terrebonne Parish.
The quickly growing grocery chain announced earlier this month that it’s moving into the Weatherford building in Schriever – a property which sits on 32 acres of land at the intersection of La. Highway 311 and La. Highway 90 – just 40 miles west of New Orleans.
The company will move its headquarters into the building, according to CEO Donny Rouse.
It will then open a distribution center in the building – a process which, when completed, will bring more than 300 jobs into the parish, according to Rouses.
The move will take place in January 2020, commemorating the 60th-year anniversary for the local grocer, which now has 63 stores (five more under construction), 6,700 employees and locations in Mississippi and Alabama, as well as Louisiana.
“I couldn’t ask for a better start to our anniversary year than a homecoming to Terrebonne Parish, where it all started,” Rouse said.
At a short press conference earlier this month, Rouse thanked Terrebonne Parish President Gordon Dove and other area lawmakers for making the move more feasible. He also thanked Gov. John Bel Edwards for his work in the process.
Dove said Terrebonne Parish is happy to have such a quickly growing business, calling the Rouses chain “first class.”
“What a great day for Terrebonne Parish and the economy,” Dove said. •
