Smalls Sliders will break ground later this month for its newest location in Thibodaux.
The community is invited to a groundbreaking ceremony Jan. 31 beginning at 3 p.m. at the new restaurant site, 305 North Canal Blvd. The event will include cheeseburger sliders for sampling and photo opportunities with the Thibodaux ownership team: Dustin Malbrough, Josh Son, Ben Malbrough, Marty Chabert, Matthew Ory and operating partner Craig Guilbeaux.
Thibodaux joins a growing list of markets where Smalls Sliders will open restaurants this year, including Shreveport, Prairieville, New Orleans, Slidell, Metairie and Alexandria, the company said Thursday. The company's website lists two Baton Rouge locations as existing restaurants and "Coming Spring 2022" for Thibodaux.
