Fantastic news for you Broussard, because it's just been announced that a brand new, 12,389 sq. ft. Evangeline Maid Retail & Distribution Center is underway.

According to, the new building is currently under construction at the 500 block of Albertson Parkway in Broussard.

The move is somewhat of a homecoming for the company. Evangeline Maid started almost 100 years ago in Youngsville.

"According to local history, Evangeline Maid Bread was founded by the Huval family in Youngsville back in 1919 and later was relocated into Lafayette in 1926. In fact, the famous Evangeline Maid logo herself was modeled after the founders’ oldest daughter of 10, Mary Huval."
