Today, U.S. Sen. David Vitter (R-La.), Chairman of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship (SBC), announced Toce Energy, LLC of Lafayette, La. as the Small Business of the Week, and will be submitting it into the official Congressional Record.

“Louisianians understand the vital role our state’s energy sector plays in the financial security of families and local economies across the state,” said Vitter. “Deep in the heart of Cajun country, Mr. Toce and his team at Toce Energy have built a solid operation that not only provides exploration, exploitation, and acquisition of oil and gas properties services in South Louisiana, but more importantly has resulted in great employment opportunities for folks across the region. Congratulations to Toce Energy for being selected as Small Business of the Week. Thank you for your commitment to the energy sector, and I look forward to your continued growth and success.”

Founded in 1997 by Victor and Paul Toce, Toce Energy offers services in accusations of oil and gas properties in eighteen parishes across South Louisiana. With properties in eighteen parishes, Toce Energy contracts over 500 vendors to support their operations, creating scores of good paying jobs and driving economic growth and opportunity in the local economies in which they operate.

As SBC Chairman, Vitter continues the tradition of honoring America’s small businesses and entrepreneurs.
