Honoring the success of these two family businesses
Lafayette, LA (KADN) — Today was a celebration of the tremendous success of two family businesses, Ace Plumbing and Breaux's Mart, with deep roots in upper Lafayette Parish. Breaux's Mart opened in 1959 and it is the store's first time to be recognized by Upper Lafayette..
"It feels awesome cause it's one thing to be acknowledged by strangers, but when people in your own community that know you on a day to day basis, it's a very warm feeling. Kind of like family, you know," says Karl Breaux, part owner of Breaux's Mart.
Karl Breaux thanks his parents for teaching the family business that it is important to be involved in the community, and to love all of the employees that work at Breaux's Mart. Breaux says the one thing that sets Breaux's Mart apart from all the rest is the idea to live the simple life, and give back to the community.
