Ruston entrepreneurs Chris Garriga and Johnny Gaudet hit the “daily double” Tuesday night as the duo picked up a pair of awards during the Ruston-Lincoln Chamber of Commerce’s 101 annual Awards Banquet held at the Lincoln Parish Library Events Center.
Garriga and Gaudet, owners and operators of both Log Cabin Grill and Market and Ponchatoulas, were presented with the Business of the Year from the Chamber of Commerce as well as the Hospitality Award from Experience Ruston (the Ruston-Lincoln Convention and Visitors Bureau).
The Business of the Year Award went to Log Cabin Grill and Market.
Originally a log cabin home, the building was converted to a restaurant more than 30 years ago and was purchased by Garriga and Gaudet in November of 2005.
The restaurant also features a market offering ready-made to heat and eat “grab and go” meals as well as other specialties.
