Chase Bank branch going from dollars to doughnuts | Business | theadvocate.com

A former Chase Bank branch on O’Neal Lane has been sold to the owner of two local doughnut shops.

Peou Toch, who owns the Town Donuts locations in Central and Zachary, bought the bank branch at 1312 O’Neal Lane for $382,000 in a deal that closed last week, according to documents filed with the East Baton Rouge Clerk of Court’s office.

The deal includes a 1,568-square foot building sitting on nearly an acre at the intersection of O’Neal and Centurion Avenue.

Never been, but I guess I'll have to try. 

Their location in Central looks like it used to be a bank branch.

I haven't tried either. Donuts are my favorite food though so the more donut shops the merrier.

I think Central has more donut shops per capita in Louisiana than any other place lol:lol:   .....Interesting spot there on O'Neal Lane!

 

Seems almost anything in BR that gets too big needs to relocate to larger places like Dallas ; Houston; Atlanta; Nashville ; Charlotte ; etc..frustrating to be stuck in a status quo mid-sized city.

Walk-On’s new Atlanta office serves as warning for Baton Rouge

https://www.businessreport.com/newsletters/jr-ball-walk-ons-new-atlanta-office-serves-as-warning-for-baton-rouge

Sure, Brandon Landry, the company’s founder and CEO, put a wonderful spin on the news. Sounding like a politician stumping for votes, the former LSU basketball walk-on turned All-America entrepreneur made it clear the company will remain based in Baton Rouge, adding, “Louisiana will always be the heartbeat and home of our brand.”

However, the most telling words he said—at least from the Baton Rouge point of view—were these: “… but our incredible growth and vision to be more than a restaurant demands that we do everything possible to field a best-in-class team across all areas of business.”

 

Translation: Baton Rouge is great if you’re looking for tap-pulling bartenders, midriff-bearing waitresses and clever marketing folks, but when it comes to high-level, brainiac executives with franchise-building credentials then Atlanta is the place you want to be.  

It’s the same nuance-filled story Todd Graves spun in 2009, with the chicken tender king saying the Raising Cane’s headquarters would remain in Baton Rouge even though most of its existing and newly hired C-suite executives would work from the company’s corporate office in Plano, just north of Dallas.

Let’s be clear, this is no criticism of Walk-On’s or Raising Cane’s. The reality of the business they’ve chosen is franchise foodie executives cluster in a handful of cities and the only way they’ll join your payroll is by bringing the job to them. 

From the broader Baton Rouge perspective, however, the Walk-On’s announcement is simply the latest example of talented, highly educated people either not moving here or—as has been the case for years—leaving the area for a hotspot destination shortly after earning their TOPS-funded degree from LSU or Southern University. 

This outmigration is a problem with far-reaching and long-term impacts on the quality of life and economy of Baton Rouge, Ball writes.

Yup. I saw that headline, I think we're past the "warning" stage though.

This is frustrating.   They aren't moving to New Orleans to get access to a better airport.   They are moving to Atlanta and Dallas specifically as a means to get out of the area to help them recruit talent.   

I can't overstate how incredibly important it is for Louisiana to shift focus towards infrastructure development and economic development.   We need another couple of recruits like DXE and IBM here.   Even if they are just service centers.    And we need to stop the decline of our cities by addressing the skyrocketing crime and refocus our efforts to develop and improve downtown an the surrounding areas as a top priority.

...Tsunami put the hip in downtown dining on the Shaw Center for the Arts rooftop deck....

 

But the 2nd (new) location is at the interesting mixed-use Highland development ...When this is all complete will need to go check it out! Interesting property location adjacent  to the Bluebonnet Swamp!

Judging by the Renderings on the website the this building could be 4 or 5 stories?

Tsunami plans second Baton Rouge location, see where it will be

https://www.theadvocate.com/baton_rouge/news/business/article_6d971aa8-8ddf-11ec-bac4-cbdd78e8a3b1.html

The upscale nature of Tsunami and its sleek design align with the goals of making @Highland a technology campus, Chadwick said. The owners of the restaurant also like the idea that the two locations are on opposite sides of the city, which allows Tsunami to serve the whole market.

@Highland had been looking for a tenant that would bring high-end restaurant service to the Highland-Bluebonnet area. “We think Tsunami does that quite well,” Chadwick said.

Tsunami also has locations in Lafayette and New Orleans.

With the Tsunami deal, all of the retail space in @Highland has been claimed. Work is set to start soon on a second building, which will feature up to 240 apartments and 25,000 square feet of commercial and office space.

PHASE TWO Announcement Coming Soon

The Shed announces BR location opening date

https://www.wafb.com/2022/05/25/shed-announces-br-location-opening-date/

The Shed Barbeque and Blues Joint is scheduled to officially open in Baton Rouge next month.

The Shed location in Ocean Springs, Mississippi is a favorite stop for many Louisianians who drive through that area.

Luke Forstmann, the owner of the new location on Burbank Drive in Baton Rouge, said their goal is to have their grand opening on June 13.

The sign for the new location was put up earlier this week, replacing the sign for “The Oasis” restaurant that recently closed. The volleyball portion of that business remains open.

Southern Living magazine named The Shed one of The South’s Best Barbeque locations earlier this year.

The Baton Rouge location is currently hiring employees. Forstmann said applications are being accepted in person at their location at 7477 Burbank Drive.

The Shed Barbeque and Blues Joint is scheduled to officially open in Baton Rouge next month.

That location isn't really a shed. 

 

They should re brand it to "The Self Storage Building" or "The Gym" - although both might allude to it being an establishment that targets the LGBT community, where "The Shed" is pretty much for everyone except vegans.
