Dallas, Texas — June 21, 2019 — For many New Orleans, LA Texas transplants the inability to get products that are familiar to home is a pain, especially having to travel “home” to get what they need.
That is why Krissy Johnson-Myles decided to take a leap of faith to open the New Texas Orleans Cajun Market & Kitchen where she is bringing ‘Nawlins to North Texas. Her New Orleans themed grocery store encompasses exactly what former New Orleans residents and lovers of everything Cajun want. From the cart return affectionately known as ‘Making Groceries’, which will feature little known facts about the Crescent City to the End Zone where New Orleans Saints themed items will be sold. You will also get a feel of New Orleans as you walk through the store. There will also be traditional aspects of the grocery store such as fresh produce, a fresh meat and seafood counter, dairy, frozen foods, and shelved goods. But the best part is the Hot Kitchen where patrons can get hot meals for their day. Classic New Orleans cuisine will be served like po’ boys, gumbo, and world famous beignets.
“New Texas Orleans is a way to bring New Orleans to those who stayed in North Texas to rebuild their lives after being displaced from Hurricane Katrina,” says owner and founder Krissy Johnson-Myles.
The mission of New Texas Orleans is to give displaced and transplanted residents from New Orleans and local Cajun food lovers a little piece of New Orleans that they are missing. Johnson-Myles also added a platform for local Black products to be introduced and sold to the public. The Cajun Market is scheduled for opening late June. The grand opening will feature a Second Line Band, Steppers, and activities for everyone hosted by the Krewe of Orleans. New Texas Orleans is also sponsoring free Crawfish for two hours and the Hot Kitchen will be open for business.
