From the center of Eunice, Riceland Crawfish sends its crawfish and alligator products across the United States.
The Riceland Crawfish label literally puts Eunice on the map through Walmart and other retailers. Food service distributor Sysco handles Riceland’s products.
Dexter Guillory, owner and manager, said Riceland Crawfish has sales of about $17 million a year and in season, hires about 150 people, mostly temporary workers, he said at a recent Eunice Rotary Club meeting.
