NEW ORLEANS — A Hammond company with one New Orleans-area culinary supply store is adding a second in New Orleans itself.

New Orleans CityBusiness ( ) reports that Alack Culinary Equipment and Supplies Superstore plans to renovate a vacant and blighted former car repair shop into a retail showroom.

Parent company Alack Refrigeration of Hammond also operates Lotz Culinary Equipment in Harahan.
