Pot & Paddle Jambalaya Kitchen is a“fast casual” Cajun restaurant chain offering freshly prepared, authentic Cajun cuisine with dine in, carry out and catering services. Founded by Chuck Lavigne in 2014, Pot & Paddle continues to expand with plans to open new locations across South Louisiana and beyond.

As a former restaurant owner, Chuck has been serving Louisiana locals and visitors freshly prepared, authentic Cajun dishes for nearly a decade. He purchased his first Cajun restaurant in 2006. With minimal capital, a dream and lots of hard work, Chuck managed to triple his sales and grow his business into one of the top revenue producing jambalaya restaurants in the greater Baton Rouge area with a loyal customer following.

In December 2013, Chuck’s restaurant was destroyed by a fire. Undeterred and optimistic, Chuck decided to turn his misfortune into an opportunity by using his proven methods of success to expand his business. Today Chuck is doing just that! He currently co-owns and operates two new Pot & Paddle Jambalaya Kitchen locations.
