Kary Lafleur, owner of Kary's Roux and Pig Stand Bar-B-Q Sauce, grew up in the restaurant business. He is the son of Archange Lafleur who ran the Pig Stand Restaurant in Ville Platte for thirty years. Therefore, entering the food manufacturing business came natural. Kary's Roux was started in 1975 in Ville Platte, La. Kary's Roux is a traditional dark Cajun roux made from flour and oil, cooked slowly until it is the perfect color. They also manufacture a dry, oil and fat free, roux. Other products available are Kary's Gumbo Mix, Kary's Bisque Mix, and Queen Bee all purpose seasoning.
