BATON ROUGE, LA. - Piccadilly Holdings' Baton Rouge-area locations have begun reopening to the public after devastating floods in south Louisiana. In-store service had been suspended so Piccadilly could provide meals at evacuation shelters.
On Aug. 19, Piccadilly locations at Essen Lane, Florida Boulevard and Airline Highway in Gonzales will reopen to everyone. Other locations will follow as shelter operations wind down. Customers are asked to check Piccadilly’s Facebook page, www.facebook.com/eatpiccadilly, where store reopenings will be updated.
At the peak of recovery efforts, Piccadilly served as many as 15,000 daily meals at the Baton Rouge River Center, Celtic Media Centre, the Dr. Martin L. King Jr. Community Center and the LSU Field House. The company is helping facilitate food service while also helping Piccadilly employees displaced by the flood.
Service to evacuation shelters will continue as long as the need exists. Piccadilly has worked in conjunction with the American Red Cross, Louisiana state government, East Baton Rouge emergency services and the National Guard.
