The Breaux Difference
If you know how to pronounce the name, we know your business. Breaux Petroleum has served South Louisiana since 1922. Our family has been here through the good times and the bad, and will be here for years to come. We have a special connection with South Louisiana. We know the people, we know the industries, and we know what it takes to make it in this area. We treat our employees and customers like family because that’s the only way we know how.
Just like your secret family gumbo recipe, Breaux Petroleum has a secret recipe for success. It involves a few of the things that make South Louisiana such a special place:
We are here for our neighbors: After Hurricane Katrina, Breaux Petroleum was back up and running as soon as we could be. We were supplying law enforcement, emergency services and electrical contractors with fuel so they could keep us safe and perform their job the way we needed them to. We were also able to open a few convenience stores to make sure our neighbors had gas, ice and the necessary supplies we could provide.
We give back: in addition to being there when our neighbors needed us most, Breaux Petroleum also supports local charities and organizations. Many of our employees are in the local Rotary Club. Also, we annually give to the United Way, The Special Olympics, The Salvation Army and we also sponsor Central Lafourche High School's Project Graduation. You can also find our Breaux Petroleum tent at local school events, charity fishing rodeos, fundraisers and any other events that provide us the opportunity to help out our local community.
Your success is our success: When your business does well, we do well. For this reason we want you to think of Breaux Petroleum as more than just your supplier of fuel and lubricants, we want you to think of us as your partner in business. We routinely help our customers find solutions to help them save time, increase their equipment life, boost productivity and most importantly, save money!
