"We began looking into creole food culture and hear about Po-Boy sandwiches. They were created during a railway strike out of necessity.

"Food from Louisiana is spicy, fried and indulgent. It's all inspired by deep-South barbeque.

"And seafood, even though it's not popular in this country, is kind of perfect for delivery.

"Our first branch was in Maidstone, that's where we trial all our new ideas.

"We trialled the menu for six months. Now we're trying to open somewhere new every month.

"Right now we're delivery-only, it's much more streamline.

"We chose Norwich for the next launch because of the demographic. It's younger than any of our other locations, there are lots of students.

"And there's a real gap in the market for us and we've had really positive feedback.
