< Back to Oral History project: Southern Boudin Trail
Comeaux’s Inc. got its start in the small kitchen at Comeaux’s Grocery, a family-owned business near the University of Louisiana-Lafayette. Eula Mae, a school cafeteria cook, and Frank Comeaux, a fireman, started the grocery store in 1967. They managed the store, selling grocery items and fresh boudin from the back, until 1980, when they passed the business on to their children. Today, their son, Ray, continues making the family boudin recipe in a USDA-approved plant that he constructed. He wholesale ships Comeaux family products, including boudin, sausages, and meat pies, to grocery stores throughout the United States.
