LSBDC at SLU helps Ponchatoula get Chaleureux!
Chaleureux is a French term for cozy, warm or soft. So when you take that and place it in the hands of an entrepreneur you’re able to create a welcoming business atmosphere. That’s what Casey Robert did.
With the help of the Louisiana Small Business Development Center at Southeastern Louisiana University (LSBDC at SLU), Robert was able to open doors for her business Chaleureux, an interior design and framing store, located at 120 West Pine Street in Ponchatoula.
Robert initially came to the LSBDC at SLU for someone to review her business plans, but she walked away with more.
LSBDC at SLU Business Consultant Brandy Boudreaux was able to help guide Robert with management assistance, sales and financial projections, and marketing and sales advice; allowing Chaleureux to open its doors in October 2015 and create three jobs.
Robert said she went to the LSBDC at SLU to make sure her business plan was viable, and to make sure she was on the right track.
“I was more confident in moving forward after our meetings, and I had a better grip on our market,” Robert said, and added that the LSBDC at SLU assisted with a building lease review as well.SOURCE: https://www.lsbdc.org/success_stories.php?&view=all
