The History of Kenney Seafood

Kenney Seafood was incorporated in 1972 and existed for 17 years before there was ever a store to walk into.

It was the fishing operation of Robert Kenney, captain of an 80-foot steel hull shrimp boat that helped supply the market that opened in Slidell in 1989. Kenney's son-in-law Brian Cappy now runs the retail operation, which relies on supply from an array of fishers to keep the long lines of customers satisfied. The kitchen boils crawfish in 50-pound pots during the season, which means it's churning out fresh, hot batches every half-hour to hour.

"One of my go-to places for anything shellfish related. They also have incredible Po'Boys."
