Village of Tangipahoa Mayor Trashica Robinson along with the board of aldermen and special guests gathered July 17 to break ground on a Big Boss Travel Plaza and Bella Rose Estates, a combination convenience store and restaurant to be located off Highway 440.
“We’ve worked hard for the past two years to bring new business to the Village of Tangipahoa,” said Robin son.
“It’s been more than 20 years since a new business came to the Village. New business means more sales tax,” said Robinson. “In the process (the businesses)create some local jobs.”
She said, “This is a good location, travelers can leave the interstate get a quick breakfast, gas up, and continue to work.”
“When this project is completed it will bring economic benefit to the town, she said. ℜ
