Richard's Supply Inc.

Design - Sales - Service - Support

Richard's Supply, is a family owned business that specializes in galley/kitchen design, sales, and service.  Our founder, Henry Richard, started the business in 1977 with a hope and a dream to make this business a success and valuable asset to the local community.  Throughout the years, Richard's has become the preferred vendor for many restaurants, bars, casinos, drillships, oil platforms,  workboats, passenger vessels, and many other food service facilities on both land and water.  

Our knowledge and experience in kitchen/galley design, sales & installation became well respected in our region as we became know as the "Galley Pros".  In 1996 we moved from our humble beginnings at 99 Verret St. in downtown Houma, to our spacious super center located at 235 S. Hollywood Rd in Houma.  This move made us the largest kitchen equipment and supply store in southern Louisiana, and attracted both commercial and residential shoppers from surrounding towns and cities to "Shop Where the Chefs Shop".   We invite anyone and everyone to shop our spacious aisles and take advantage of our wholesale pricing that we offer to the public.  Our store boasts a large variety of kitchen equipment including refrigeration, cooking, frying, ice making, and food prep items.  We also have aisles and aisles of kitchen supplies, gadgets, tools, and disposables.  

Our primary focus has been on the marine and oilfield industry and the communities that support these hard working families.  We just celebrated 40 years of business in 2017.  With our second generation leadership at the helm, we feel our growth and ability to adapt to the modern times will continue to prove to our customers that we are a valuable asset to their operations.  With our dedication to customer satisfaction and customer success, we choose to be a partner in your operations, and not just a vendor.  We want to grow with you, our loyal customer.   Our company is the authorized distributor for all major brands of kitchen equipment and supplies.  We are also the authorized service agent for most of the brands with trained and knowledgeable technicians and well equipped vehicles form most jobs.  We also became a general supply store for most of our marine and oilfield customers due to demand of becoming a "one stop shop" for them.  We are an authorized distributor for many safety and industrial supplies in our Marine and Industrial Division.  

In 2016 Richard's acquired the oldest kitchen supply store in New Orleans, LOUBAT EQUIPMENT COMPANY.  Loubat was founded in 1875 and has been a staple in the restaurant industry of New Orleans for all of these years.  With this acquisition came a great responsibility to maintain 2 great companies outstanding reputations and hold true to their strengths.  Richard's, being known for the galley design and supply specialty and Loubat for the New Orleans restaurant design and supply specialty.  The combination of the 2 is a perfect pairing and has shown great value to the organization.  A satellite store in New Orleans is a consideration and will become a reality once we see the demand from our loyal customers in that region.  We deliver weekly to the New Orleans area and are showing growth in this market as we focus on our customers success in that area.
