CHELSEA – Following the success of its first location in Pelham, Cajun Boys & Our Po Boys has announced it will open a second restaurant in Chelsea.

Cajun Boys & Our Po Boys opened in Pelham in September 2017, offering Louisiana favorites such as red beans and rice, gumbo, crawfish, fresh beignets and more.

The owners of the Chelsea location, the Donovan family and the Marshall family, are excited to bring this restaurant to their current hometown in August.

Both families have lived in and been a part of the Chelsea community for many years.

The Donovans also own the Cajun Boys & Our Po Boys Pelham location, Donovan Builders LLC and the Johnny Rays Corporation.

The Donovans have been an active part of the Chelsea community from coaching softball to sponsoring many local sports teams and community events.

Their children, Jack Jr., Ashleigh and Carson, have attended Chelsea schools and played sports for the Chelsea Hornets.

They attend church at Liberty Baptist in Chelsea.

The Donovans have always wanted to bring the taste of their roots to Chelsea with a New Orleans style restaurant serving fresh seafood and Louisiana favorites. Husband, Jack Donovan, is from Metairie, Louisiana and wife, Michelle Donovan, is from Natchez, Mississippi.

The Marshalls have lived in Chelsea for 14 years. Husband, Scott, is originally from New Orleans, and wife, Carolyn, is from Birmingham.

Olivia, their daughter, is a member of the Chelsea High School varsity cheer squad and also cheers at Ace Cheer Company.

Scott and his wife Caroline have also been a big part of the Chelsea community along with the Donovans. They coached softball for Chelsea on their daughter’s team and enjoy attending Chelsea football games while Olivia has cheered since she was 4. Scott has been the regional operations manager for the Shoe Department for 21-plus years, and Carolyn has owned a children’s boutique.

Now venturing into the restaurant business, you will see their whole family helping in the restaurant.

At the new location, patrons will see menu items such as shrimp po boys, hot

roast beef po boys, boudin balls, oysters (fried or chargrilled) and crawfish (available in season).

Hours of operation will be Monday-Thursday, 11 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

The new Chelsea location will be located at 48 Chesser Crane Road, Suite O.
