Hammond-based Dixie RV SuperStores is expanding to their third location in Breaux Bridge.
The new location will boast 14.5 acres with a 20,500-square-foot, two-story sales building and a 16,000-square-foot single-story service building with 14 service bays.
It will be located at the intersection of Interstate 10 and La. Hwy. 328, Exit 109.
The new dealership is slated to be completed in spring 2015. Spartan Building Corporation is the general contractor and M. Matt Durand LLC is the site-work subcontractor.
Founded in 1984, Dixie RV SuperStores has developed into the largest RV dealer in the state and the Florida panhandle. The store in Breaux Bridge will offer camping accessories, parts and service as well as new and pre-owned motorhomes, travel trailers, toy haulers and fifth wheels.
“We are excited about the opportunity to expand Dixie RV to Breaux Bridge,” said Greg Lala, Dixie CEO, at a Oct. 20 ground-breaking.
“We have been proud to serve the Acadiana parishes from Hammond for the past two and a half decades and now we are proud to call Acadiana home,” Lala said. “This property is easily accessible off of the highly trafficked Interstate 10, allowing us to better accommodate our customers traveling in the southern part of the State.”
“The development of the new dealership represents our company’s commitment to the community and surrounding areas of Breaux Bridge,” said Stephen Guidry, president.
“We are excited to be able to create new jobs for the region and to be better able to serve the customer base we have today,” Guidry said.
Speakers at the ground-breaking ceremony included Breaux Bridge Mayor Jack Dale Delhomme and St. Martin Parish President Guy Cormier.
