Floyd's Meat and Seafood got its start on Marshall Rd. in Jacksonville, in 1978. Floyd Johnson was a butcher's son, and moonlighted as a butcher while serving in the US Air Force. After he retired from the USAF in 1977, he got bored painting the house, puttering in the garden, and goofing off, and bought a small grocery store that was on Marshall Rd. He got the whole family in the act, including his late wife, Rhonda, and their children, Lorie, Lisa, and Thad.
Today, that site is now a "Chilis", and the business moved briefly to Crestview Plaza in Jacksonville, then to its current location on Kiehl Ave. in Sherwood. Lisa Marshall bought the business from Floyd, who still helps out -when he's not playing with his airplane. Thirty years is a long time to own a business, but Lisa and Floyd are still at it. They specialize in 'old-fashioned' service, with a Cajun twist. Rhonda Johnson came from Louisiana, and brought her recipes for gumbo, etouffee, and jambalaya with her. The store has become the local "Homesick Cajun Headquarters", and during crawfish season (February-June), Lisa sells them by the bagful. (She sold 34 tons of live crawfish in 2008!) They also carry a great selection of seafood, and wonderful Cajun holiday goodies like TurDucHens and wonderful hams. They do custom orders, too.
"Was that for today?"
