A long time ago when Phil’s father was a young boy in Church Point, Louisiana, he was very creative with his toys. His favorite toys were things he made with his mother’s empty wooden spools. In Cajun French the word for these wooden spools is ‘Fezzo’. Everywhere he went he always had these spool toys with him, One day, the local postmaster began calling him Fezzo – a name he carried with him all his life.
In July 1979, Phil’s family opened a grocery store in Rayne, Louisiana and called it Fezzo’s Supermarket. In July 1999, twenty years to the month later, Phil and Pat opened their first restaurant in Crowley. When it came time to decide on the name, it was clear. In honor of Phil’s dad, they named it Fezzo’s Seafood, Steakhouse, and Oyster Bar.
