Now this is REAL Cajun food!
Things were hot and spicy at the Texas County fairgrounds with Schultz and Summers Engineering hosting a Cajun Shrimp Boil Tuesday night.  Over 75 business and community leaders from the region attended the festivities.  Velena Ingram, Executive Director of the Houston Chamber of Commerce said, “What a fun party!  SSE knows how to have a good time.  Everyone had a great time and the Cajun food was unbelievable.  I am already looking forward to next year.”

Owner Stan Schultz said, “Business is continuing to grow in our mid-Missouri offices.  We love working in rural Missouri and to have so many community leaders show up and help us celebrate another great year of business was exciting.”

The festivities started at 5:00 pm with several people already waiting for the first batch of shrimp to finish cooking.  “The Schultz and Summers folks sure know how to cook Cajun style.  They put on a great party with some outstanding food,” added T.J. Lewis, Ozark County Commissioner.

While the slow economy has negatively affected many Missouri businesses, SSE was just recognized as one of the fastest growing companies by Inc. 500|5000.  Marketing Director Rodney Jetton says they are bucking that trend, “Because our company listens to the needs and concerns of community leaders, we don’t try to tell them what to do.  Our engineers know the rules and are used to working with USDA and DNR officials.  They are experts at finding funding and designing projects that meet the community’s needs at the lowest possible price. Our projects consistently meet the short and long range government requirements while saving taxpayers money.”
