New seafood market opens in Des Allemands

Des Allemands now has another seafood market option, as Ray Schlaudecker recently announced that he will open a Ray’s Seafood in Des Allemands.

The market is set to open Feb. 9.

“I’m extremely excited to offer some fresh and boiled seafood to the residents of St. Charles Parish,” Schlaudecker said. “We saw that there was a need for a seafood market in that area that does both live and boiled seafood. The feedback so far has been so wonderful.”

Schlaudecker said the market, which will be located at 17235 US 90 in front of Frank’s Supermarket, will offer boiled and live crawfish, shrimp, boiled sides and other common seafood market products.

“We’re going to start off this year pretty basic,” Schlaudecker said. “Next year I’ll expand it to a full-blown market and offer soups, potato salad, stuffed crabs and things like that.”

Schlaudecker said he is modeling the new St. Charles Parish business after other successful places he owns.

“I own Captain Sid’s Seafood in Bucktown … it’s been in my family since 1979,” he said. “I opened up Ray’s Seafood in Houma and now we’re expanding into Des Allemands … this one is a partnership with Troy Matherne – he’s a St. Charles Parish resident.”

Schlaudecker said he has already hired four local residents for the Des Allemands location, and as the offerings of the market grow so will the employee base.
