It is no secret, Copeland’s of Lafayette has closed its doors for good, as of Wednesday, November 2nd 2016. The New Orleans based chain went through a substantial renovation no more than 2 years ago, but could not remain open.
Although Copeland’s has closed, it is not entirely gone. Management for Copeland’s has stated that a smaller footprint location will open in the near future called Copeland’s Gourmet Kitchen & Takeout.
Upon some deep research, Googling, I have found only one other location like this and it’s inside of the New Orleans airport. Now, I know what you’re thinking, it sounds like mall food, but it will be a lot more Copeland’s without the larger space, that’s all.
I think it is worth mentioning that a couple other restaurants, 2 Paul’s & Grand Coteau Bistro, have closed its doors this week. I will make a broad statement here, as it is not pointed at certain company, but sometimes it is the fault of your own, not others. Blame has never made anyone or anything greater.
