Go to Franchise Application Form Hi Folks,

My name is Raymond Griffin, founder of the "The Lost Cajun Restaurants®” where we feature southern style home cooking, like Fried catfish, shrimp, and oysters. REAL Louisiana Gumbo, Po-Boys and our signature dessert, Beignets! We are a full service, family friendly restaurant. We provide, in our opinion, the best service in the industry and it is our goal to make all of our guests feel like they are having dinner at a friends house. From our open kitchens to our handmade wooden tables and our New Orleans atmosphere, you will think that you stepped off of the street into a New Orleans bistro!

I am from the little island town of Barataria, Louisiana, just south of New Orleans, Louisiana. I used to own and operate a successful fishing lodge there for 15 years and that's where I learned how to cook authentic Cajun food. My guests kept telling me that the food was so good that I should open a restaurant!

The original Lost Cajun® was founded in October of 2010 in Frisco, Colorado with my late wife Belinda. Then in 2012, my best friend and fishing buddy Jon Espey joined me and we opened The Lost Cajun® in Breckenridge, Colorado. Since then we have grown The Lost Cajun® brand to more than 12 stores nationwide and counting!

Our customers have been driving our growth, with people from all over the country wanting to open a Lost Cajun® restaurant in their hometown. We believe that it is our unique culture and atmosphere, friendly staff, and of course great consistent food that makes us such a popular destination. We offer a unique brand that is not just another sandwich shop, pizza store or another burger joint." It's food that you can taste" not too spicy and full of flavors that you have yet to experience!

Exclusive developmental markets now available in key cities across the United States.
