When our local Texas Road House announced that it was going to be initiating a bump out project, D’Argent Construction immediately began putting together a proposal for the national restaurant chain. It was an ideal venture for the Central Louisiana based company, as the building was located only a couple of minutes from D’Argent’s office.

Historical Site Approved By City Council to Develop By D’Argent Companies
D’Argent Companies had only recently put the polishing touches on their latest retail strip center when Duncan Enterprises, LLC approached them with a business opportunity. The Louisiana based multi-unit franchisee had seen the outstanding work produced by D’Argent and was eager to have them assist with his latest venture in Opelousas, LA. Duncan’s goal was to bring revenue, job opportunities and scrumptious food to the small town by building a Little Caesar’s Pizza restaurant.
Site selection was pivotal to the business’s success, due the heavily used drive thru window for hot and ready pizzas. D’Argent submitted several sites in the area of interest and decided alongside Duncan Enterprises, LLC that a corner lot would best suit their needs. The Louisiana Department of Transportation was immediately involved once a successful purchase agreement was drafted. After a few revised site plans, our access locations were permitted and the project was ready for the next steps.
Lead by their Vice President of Development, D’Argent Companies purchased a site and began consulting with the City of Opelousas. They were able to successfully navigate through real estate development challenges which included: support from the historic district, backing from the Opelousas City Council and approval regarding the arborist assessment. The most gratifying part of this process was discussing ideas for the center piece of the building with The Magnet Academy for Cultural Arts. The academy painted a large Muriel on the side of the building to accentuate the local culture that is so unique to Opelousas, Louisiana.

The lot remained uninhabited for a few years, despite the considerable marketing efforts. D’Argent did not abandon their venture; they knew that the market would eventually shift in their favor if they remained steadfast.
When D’Argent first met Raceland QSR, they knew it would progress into a long lasting business relationship. They worked effortlessly together throughout the project adhering to deadlines and specialty building specifications.
Taking Out the Old, Bringing in the New
In an effort to maximize the new tenant’s full potential, the old building was torn down and construction commenced. The D’Argent crew was able to flawlessly coordinate with Hardee’s Corporation Design Team to make certain that the final concept would provide a modern and stylish design that would appeal to their customers.
Roland Giallonardo was the lead site superintendent and worked indefatigably to ensure that all aspects of the project were completed with the highest quality product and finish. Construction was concluded on time and under budget.
