Louisiana Fish Fry continues ongoing expansion

Louisiana Fish Fry is gearing up to expand its product line again. The Baton Rouge company with a roster of batters, boils, sauces and seasonings recently filed two advance notices with state economic officials regarding planned expansions.

The company’s origins date to 1959, when Tony Pizzolato opened a small produce and seafood business called Tony’s Seafood. By the early 1980s, it was selling more than 50,000 pounds of crawfish a day and drawing lines out the door for its Cajun dishes. So the Pizzolato family launched Louisiana Fish Fry Products, now sold in all 50 states. In 2018, it was acquired by an affiliate of Austin private equity firm Peak Rock Capital, and by 2019 it had opened a new distribution center.
