Coming Together with Willie's Duck Diner

Willie's Duck Diner is now open to the public.

Thursday September 7th, fans of Duck Dynasty and southern food are invited to come out and celebrate the RE-Grand Opening of Willie's Duck Diner. There will be a ribbon cutting at 2:00 p.m. to kick off the fun and meals to come from the restaurant. 

Willie Robertson and Marco Moran are excited to go into this new business together. Both graduates of the University of Louisiana Monroe in 1996, Willie and Marco had never meet until they began to talk about becoming business partners. Despite the negativity between race and politics that is often seen in the news, Willie and Marco want to show that when you focus on what is alike and not different, you will be able to see all the great things you have in common. Though the two partners belong to different races and political parties, they connect with their common faith, love of family, and honoring what is right. 

Thursday September 7th, begins the celebration, and Saturday September 9th, continues the celebration with a Kids' Fun Day from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
