NOLA Blends Storefront

Located in the culinary capital of the world (New Orleans, LA which locals refer to as "NOLA"), NOLA Blends was founded in 2018 by best friends Louis Laurent and Richard Simmons. They met freshman year at Holy Cross High School and have been friends ever since.

After high school, Louis joined the United States Navy where he finished his naval career as a Third-Class Petty Officer. He was an Aviation Ordnanceman and worked on the Navy F/A-18F Super Hornet. He's also a squad member of VFA-137 NAS in Lemoore, CA.

Richard attended the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA where he studied Graphic Design. During college, Richard also attended Le Cordon Bleu Culinary School in Old Town Pasadena at night where he fell in love with the culinary arts.

Both Richard and Louis, being born and raised in New Orleans, LA, know a thing or two about great cuisine. That's why they've dedicated their lives to promoting the importance of using quality cooking oils to cook quality meals. NOLA Blends was established with the core mission of using the finest imported ingredients in the world to "Change the Way People Cook." We guarantee satisfaction. We guarantee quality. So, whether it’s our "It Don't Madda" Bread Dip, Marinade and Grillin' Sauce or our Voodoo Spicy Dill Pickle Seasoning, if you try one bottle, you'll never use another brand again. Enjoy our products and enjoy the art of cooking. We hope our products bring joy to your kitchen, your dining room, and your stomach. Our goal is bringing your family and friends closer over great meals.
