The Lost Cajun Bringing Authentic Cajun Flavor to Westminster
July 24, 2018 // Franchising.com // COVINGTON, La. - The Lost Cajun is set for further expansion in Colorado. Founded by Louisiana-native Raymond “Griff” Griffin in Frisco, Colorado, the family-friendly restaurant focused on authentic Cajun food and southern hospitality you can feel, is slated to open its eighth Colorado restaurant in Westminster in September.
The new restaurant - located at 3013 West 104 Ave. unit 100 - will be owned and operated by Long Yu and George Pan, who signed a development agreement for a total of two restaurants throughout North Denver.
“We’re ecstatic about bringing some down-home flavor and warm Cajun hospitality to Westminster,” said Yu. “After dining at The Lost Cajun’s Frisco location, we couldn’t stop thinking about the delicius Cajun cooking and southern hospitality we experienced. The brand’s one-of-a-kind concept and remarkable atmosphere has already resulted in so much recognition throughout Colorado. We’re confident that the Westminster community will welcome our location with open arms.”
Long and George have been friends for over 20 years and both share the same passion for food and travel. During one of their trips to the South, they fell in love with Cajun food and struggled to find it elsewhere. Last year one of their friends told them that there was an authentic Cajun place near the mountains surrounding Frisco, so on different occasions, they both went up the mountain to try it and fell in love with the Lost Cajun concept.
The Lost Cajun’s menu offers diners a sampling of traditional Cajun fare, including a variety of gumbos - seafood, chicken and sausage, and vegetarian. Red beans and rice, fried seafood, crawfish etouffee and lobster bisque also top the menu, as does another Cajun staple, jambalaya. And what Cajun restaurant would be complete without beignets for dessert?
The Lost Cajun further distinguishes itself with a fantastic down-home atmosphere - a true hole-in-the-wall with wooden tables, unique decorations and an expertly crafted playlist of Zydeco music. The open kitchen concept harks back to the wooden counters in Louisiana’s gumbo houses; patrons can watch their food being cooked and hear the courtesy and respect commonly associated with Cajun culture.
“As we continue to expand our presence in Denver and other parts of Colorado, it’s crucial to find the right franchise partners who are deeply passionate about the brand and are excited to promote Cajun culture,” said Raymond Griffin, Founder and CEO of The Lost Cajun. “We couldn’t be more excited about this partnership. Long and George are hardworking individuals with whom we share the same values. They will play an instrumental role in further establishing our brand in our home market.”
