Buff City Soap Opening First Louisiana Soap Makery
Handmade soap retailer continues rapid expansion by opening new location in Shreveport
October 23, 2020 // Franchising.com // Shreveport, LA. - Buff City Soap - a rapidly growing experiential soap retailer known for its handmade bath and body products, is continuing its growth across the South by opening its first Louisiana soap makery. The new makery - located at 7021 Youree Drive in Shreveport - will be owned and operated by Jeff and Stacy Lauseng, along with their daughter Katelyn, and is slated to open in early November. The Lausengs plan to open four to six additional Buff City Soap makeries in Bossier, Ruston, and Monroe over the course of the next year.
“We really fell in love with the Buff City Soap concept,” stated Jeff. “After trying the products and experiencing the soap makeries for ourselves, we knew that Buff City Soap was something we wanted to bring to Louisiana and share with the Shreveport community.”
Each Buff City Soap store offers more than 30 unique and customizable scents across dozens of handcrafted soap products; including its famous soap bars, bath bombs, foaming hand soap, and even laundry soap. The brand’s products are crafted by local artisans at the in-store Makeries, which allow guests to customize the scent and ingredients used in the process to create a unique scent profile.
“When people visit a Buff City Soap makery, they get to see how we create our products which is something completely unique to Buff City Soap,” said Katelyn. “Not only do they enjoy being able to see their products made in-person, but they also love the customization that our process offers and they enjoy being able to create their own scents.”
Founded in 2013, Buff City Soap has created a high quality alternative to commercial soap products full of harsh chemicals, detergents, animal fats, and sulfates. By giving customers the chance to see the whole making process live in each Soap Makery, Buff City Soap is disrupting the consumer goods industry by focusing on transparency of ingredients and process.
The store hours for the new soap makery will be Monday - Saturday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sunday 12 p.m. to 6 pm.
