Bud and Smothered Rabbit – Out to Lunch – It’s Acadiana
Here in Acadiana we take the term “Southern Hospitality” seriously. We’re proud of how we welcome people into our homes, and into our businesses.
And for some of us, hospitality is our business.
On this edition of Out to Lunch, Peter Ricchiuto introduces two people at very different ends of the hospitality industry: Herb Schilling and David Billeaud.
David is the founder and owner of one of Lafayette’s favorite institutions, T-Coon’s restaurant. David started T-Coon’s in 1993, and he’s still there every day, in the kitchen, cooking. David, thanks for taking time out of T-Coon’s to come eat at Social. Welcome to Out to Lunch.
Herb Schilling spreads around hospitality on a grand scale. Since 1950 his family company, Schilling Distributing, has been wholesaling Budweiser, Anheuser Busch products, and more recently a wide range of beverages all across Acadiana.
