Murray Tate, co-founder of NOLA Poboys, is a true entrepreneur who has built several successful businesses over the past three decades. After the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, he temporarily ran a landscaping business and rented a warehouse in the Central Business District in New Orleans. With few residents back in the city and even fewer places to eat, Murray started selling poboys out of the warehouse space using nothing more than a plastic card table and fryer. Despite the lack of décor, the poboys were a hit. After a glowing review in the Gambit Weekly during the first weekend of Jazz Fest, Murray’s poboy business exploded. He soon found and rented a store on famous Bourbon Street. Today, the restaurant is the top-rated poboy shop in New Orleans. Diners from across the U.S. flock to NOLA Poboys for his spicy breading, authentic gumbo and of course, delicious poboys!
