The distinctive taste of Creole-seasoned cuisine first grabbed Houstonians by the taste buds in 1969 with the opening the original Frenchy’s Po-Boy on Scott Street. Still popular, this hometown favorite celebrated 40 years of providing quality meals and Houston-community care with festivities at two locations in July.
GlennLock Foods, Ltd. (a subsidiary of 3131 Properties, Ltd.), the Frenchy’s exclusive licensee and owner of seven Frenchy’s restaurants, hosted a future-of-the-brand celebration at the Frenchy’s Main Street Grille, 8110 Kirby Drive in Houston.
Family friendly fun was celebrated with live music by the “Young Fellas” brass second line jazz band, Houston Texans and Houston Dynamo cheerleaders, face painting, games, prizes and plenty of Frenchy’s cuisine. The July 3rd party continued with a legacy celebration at the original Frenchy’s, 6102 Scott Street also in Houston.
Frenchy’s founders, Percy “Frenchy” and Sallie Creuzot, are extremely humbled by how Houston has embraced Frenchy’s over the past 40 years. “We are thankful to the Houston community,” said Mrs. Creuzot. “We have been able to maintain our family business and make good friends along the way.” Frenchy’s is an icon in the city for many loyal customers and an undiscovered gem for others yet to experience the flavorful cuisine and new fast-casual restaurants.
GlennLock Foods appreciates being selected by the Creuzots to take the Frenchy’s brand to the next level “We don’t take the Creuzots trust in us lightly,” said GlennLock Foods COO Reginald Coachman. “We are honored to have their [the Creuzots] trust to grow the brand and introduce new concepts like our fast-casual restaurant models that include sit-down restaurants with the standard Frenchy’s menu, a grill menu, bar, large flat screen televisions, and a drive-thru, all-in-one,” he said.
From its humble beginnings as a po-boy sandwich stand, Frenchy’s has grown to become the hometown favorite for millions of customers over the years, with a full Creole-style menu of sides to accompany the famous, Creole seasoned Frenchy’s chicken. Frenchy’s is a strong supporter of the Houston community, annually underwriting many of the city’s nonprofit organizations and programs.
Founded in 1969 by the Creuzot family, Frenchy’s uses the original Creuzot recipes and is one of the most popular Creole cuisine restaurants in Houston and surrounding areas.
The famous, juicy, Creole seasoned chicken accompanied by several Creole sides have Houstonians saying, “Gotta have my Frenchy’s!” GlennLock Foods operates seven Frenchy’s units in Houston and the surrounding areas. The original Scott Street location and the Frenchy’s located inside H-E-B grocery store in Houston continue to be owned and operated by the Creuzot family.
