Roly Poly, Ruston’s newest eatery, will open on Wednesday at 10 a.m. at 732 Celebrity Drive.
“This is going to be what we consider our soft opening,” Dajuana Johnson, co-owner of Roly Poly, said.
Johnson said she wanted to bring something different to this area.
“We wanted to do something in Ruston,” Johnson said. “We had been customers at the West Monroe location and we loved the food and the concept. We just felt like Ruston needed more places to eat and we wanted to bring in that concept.”
Roly Poly is a unique sandwich shop, in that they specialize in wraps.
Registration has opened for the eighth annual Business Outlook Summit, sponsored by Community Trust Bank, which will be held from 8 a.m.-noon March 8 at CenturyLink Headquarters in Monroe.
Speakers will deliver economic forecasts for the region, state and nation. Delivering the economic outlook for the nation is keynote speaker Brian Belski, chief investment strategist for Oppenheimer Asset Management Inc. in New York City.
Using mostly professional athletes as examples, students at Cedar Creek, a small group of Ruston High students and various guests, listened as Cedar Creek alumnus Rohan Rangaraj stressed the importance of hard work at the fifth annual William and Virginia Marbury Lecture series.
In addressing the audience, Rangaraj said he wanted to deliver a lecture that hopefully the students would remember.
