Today, U.S. Senator David Vitter (R-La.), Chairman of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship (SBC), announced Bart’s Office Moving, Inc. of New Orleans, La. as Small Business of the Week, and will be submitting it into the official Congressional Record.

“After their father experienced a medical condition that left him unable to continue operating his successful office furniture repair shop, Bart Thibodeaux’s wife Kathleen and their four daughters took the reins, continuing their family’s namesake business and meeting with great growth and success,” said Vitter. “Congratulations to the Thibodeaux family and Bart’s Office Moving for being selected Small Business of the Week. Thank you for your commitment to your family and for being an exemplary role model to women entrepreneurs and small business owners everywhere. I look forward to your continued growth and success.”

In 1978, Bart and Kathleen Thibodeaux opened Bart’s Office Furniture Repairs in New Orleans, La. A few years later, Bart developed a chronic illness, hindering him from working. Bart Thibodeaux’s wife Kathleen and their four daughters – Courtney, Ashley, Kasie, and Alexie – joined in running the family business, expanding the venture into Bart’s Office Moving, Inc. and operating with the same level of customer service and care the group has become known for.

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