LAFAYETTE, La. (KLFY) – A new food truck has been popping up around town lately. Beignet Box was started by Lafayette native, Elizabeth Morris alongside her two best friends, actress/singer, Christina Milian, and Takia Evans, wife of New Orleans Saints Hall of Famer, Jahri Evans.
The three decided to create the truck based on their love for the sweet treat. The friends started the idea out in Los Angeles, CA before bringing the Louisiana delicacy back home.
Morris, Evans, and Milian say, they received a lot of support from many celebrities, including Will Smith, Kim Kardashian, and many more.
It started as a pop-up in Atlanta, on the set of Bad Boys 3. Actor, Will Smith enjoyed it so much he suggested they open a business. After receiving that kind of support, Morris says that’s when they decided get a truck.
Soon after they embarked on a multi-city tour, including cities like San Antonio, TX, and right here in Lafayette, LA. Based on the feedback from Lafayette, Morris decided to start a truck in her hometown.
Beignet Box goes out three days a week here in Acadiana. To keep track of where they’ll be parked, follow their social media pages. You can also learn more about the truck at shopbeignetbox.com.
