A new partnership is bringing The Best Stop to Rouses.

A handful of Cajun-Certified products from The Best Stop in Scott are now available for purchase at Rouses Markets. Once one of the best-kept secrets in Cajun Country will now be expanding to all 65 Rouses locations throughout Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama.

This is the first major partnership with a grocery retailer since The Best Stop opened its wholesale facility back in late 2020.

The Best Stop

The Best Stop CFO Penny Gennuso says it's surreal to see The Best Stop on the shelves at Rouses, a place she's shopped for years.

From one Louisiana family-owned business to another, partnering with Rouses was an easy decision.

Rouses will carry some of the most popular Cajun-Certified products from The Best Stop including the company’s Cajun and Cajun Garlic Seasonings; Original, Mild and Smoked Boudins; Boudin Party Links; Smoked Pork Sausage; Smoked Andouille; and Smoked Pork Tasso.

You may have already noticed their products showing up in Rouses over the last few weeks, but know they are here to stay and available at every Rouses Market along the gulf coast in their fresh meat section.

The Best Stop co-founder Robert Cormier says this partnership is just the latest move toward achieving the goal they set when opening the store.

When we first opened The Best Stop, our goal was to make great Cajun food and a brand our families would be proud of. Well, I think we’ve done that and more. I’ve always believed that food brings people together—that’s just something ingrained in us Cajuns—and now we have the opportunity to invite even more people to try our products. We’re so grateful for each and every one of our customers. Whether they’re here or 2,000 miles away, at the end of the day, they’re all a part of our family.

Look for The Best Stop during your next trip to Rouses and keep an eye out for their next move as the company has plans to continue expanding their distribution partners in the near future.
