A new Cracker Barrel / Shell gas station is under construction at the University / I-10 interchange.  The new store replaces an abandoned Texaco that used to sit at the site right in front of the Red Roof Inn.  The new $750,000 station was permitted in March.  The Baton Rouge-based company already runs 17 Cracker Barrels and three Church’s Chicken restaurants in the Lafayette area. 

Too often I hear about people from out of town who think Lafayette doesn’t have much to offer based on some of the older development along I-10.  I think this is a great re-use of an abandoned commercial site at one of Lafayette’s front doors.
