Couple moves from doughnuts to beignets in Burlington

A couple with a successful track record owning restaurant franchises will be selling beignets instead of doughnuts at a chain new to the Triad. Peter and Bliss Turner of Chapel Hill will open The Lost Cajun in Burlington at 105 Huffman Mill Road – a former Mattress Firm space with 2,500 square feet of restaurant space and a patio. The Lost Cajun, based in Covington, Louisiana, has 23 restaurants operating in six states, with seven additional restaurants in development and planned to open this year.
