Local residents Cherie and her husband Todd Boudreaux will open a seasonal seafood boiling trailer at the corner of FM 1774 and Tudor Way in Magnolia in mid-February. Boudreaux's Boiling Shack offers seafood boiled in an original crawfish seasoning blend and will also serve boiled sausage, corn and potatoes.

"It seemed like the time was right now with [COVID-19] and everyone eating out getting to-go food," Cherie said. "We've always wanted to do boiled seafood because it's something we grew up doing in south Louisiana."

Hailing from the Lafayette area of Lousiana and having moved to northwest Houston 15 years ago, Todd said the business will supply a need for a nearby crawfish joint.

"It takes 20 to 25 minutes to go get crawfish—you have to go to Tomball or new Magnolia. There's definitely a demand for it, ... and we're just trying to supply that need," Todd said.

The business plans to open during crawfish season, which usually runs from February to June. The business is set to open in mid-February, however, as a result of cooler temperatures causing a shortened crawfish supply this season.


With warmer temperatures coming soon, Cherie said she looks forward to starting the venture in Magnolia.

"We are looking forward to meeting so many people in our area and just getting to know our customers ... and having fun doing what we love," Cherie said.

The trailer will be located at 37707 FM 1774, Magnolia. 281-798-0338. www.facebook.com/needcrawfish
