Tony’s Seafood denies reports of second location

Tony’s Seafood Market & Deli said Monday it has “no current plans” to open a new location in Baton Rouge, despite some media reports to the contrary.

“While we are honored by the outpouring of community interest in a second location, our Plank Road operations are thriving. We have invested in state-of-the-art facilities and equipment over the past five years to grow our business and maintain the level of quality Baton Rouge has come to expect from our seafood, and our family,” the popular seafood company said in a news release.

“Our focus is firmly on the roots we have planted in north Baton Rouge and our commitment to provide the Capital Region with the finest quality seafood, fish fry, mixes and condiments.”
