Opelousas is also the “spice capital of the world” because of the high production and sales of spices such as Targil seasoning, Tony Chachere’s products, LouAna cooking oil and Savoie’s Cajun meats and products. Also this city housed one of Yoohoo’s factories before it closed.


Opelousas is derived from the Native American tribe “Appalousa” who first arrived and occupied the area before Europeans did.

It was in 1690, that the first arrival of the European was recorded and he was a French hunter. Then in 1719, the first military arrived led by Ensign Nicolas Chauvin de la Frénière were sent just to look around the area. A year after, the French had made Opelousas the major trading post for many developing areas.

Don Alejandro O’Reilley, the governor of Louisiana released a land ordinance about people living in Opelousas Territory to get land grants. Still, foreign settlers and traders came and went in the area.
