We are committed to a permanent presence in the New Orleans region for many reasons. One important reason is because this is where the majority of our citizens live. 52% of Louisiana’s citizens are “here” – living in one of the parishes within or touched by a circle with a radius of 75 miles from the intersection of I-12 and Hwy 434.

According to the US Census Bureau, Louisiana’s population is 4,601,893. Tally the populations of the parishes touched by the 75 mile circle, and they total 2,382,316. 52% of Louisiana’s citizens live nearby.
