Betty Davis - Louisiana Restaurant Association Legend's Award

On January 27, 2012 Betty Davis became a Louisiana Restaurant Association Legend's Award recipient. The LRA recognizes the long-term dedication of employees who make up the backbone of our industry by presenting them with this award. To qualify an employee must be nominated by an LRA member, have worked at the member restaurant for at least 20 years, and personify exemplary service and dedication.

Betty Davis, more than qualifies! She has worked at the LaPlace Frostop for almost 26 years. She is a stellar example of service and dedication. Betty is not just an employee she is part of our LaPlace Frostop family!

Although Betty came to work with us in 1986, her first job in 1963 was here at the LaPlace Frostop for Wayne Kendrick. She would work here until 1966 when Wayne Kendrick moved to the Frostop on Government St. in Baton Rouge, LA. She helped him out for a few weeks in Baton Rouge! After leaving Frostop, she worked at several iconic LaPlace landmarks that are now long gone. LaPlace Coffee Shop, Tarpon Seafood & Steak House, and Airline Motors. She returned to the LaPlace Frostop on April 26, 1986 and has been with us ever since!
Betty isn't just a dedicated and hard worker she is in our opinion one of the BEST cooks in the River Parishes! Through the years Betty has been responsible for our homemade chili, bbq, and gravy. The dishes she is best known for are the Chicken & Andouille Gumbo, Red Beans & Rice, and the Catfish & Shrimp Supreme. Congratulations Betty! You have always been a legend to us - this just made it official!
