“What’s special about doing business in New Orleans is that you get a combination of highly competitive business assets and an unsurpassed quality of life. I would not exchange it for anywhere in the world.”

– Henry Coaxum Jr.

“I’ve found the day-to-day experience of doing business in New Orleans much the same as elsewhere. But in New Orleans, our cost of doing business is lower, particularly because we have some of the lowest utility rates in the nation and we’re one of America’s most affordable cities with great amenities. Add that to the skilled workforce, the best-in-class incentives and an unparalleled culture and you have one of America’s best locations to work and live.”

– Charles Rice
