Prior to Bobby's Paint and Body Shop, Bobby Seaux, owner and founder worked in the oil industry as a welder and fabricator. Lafayette in the 1980's was in the midst of an oil crisis. There were bumper stickers stating "Last one to leave Lafayette, turn off the lights". Bobby and many of his colleagues were worried for their jobs and had become unsure of the oil industry as a secure and stable place to work. He decided to go to work with his brother, Donald Seaux, buying wrecked cars, repairing them, and selling them. Fortunately, his skill set transferred very well into the collision repair industry. He started Bobby's Paint and Body Shop in 1984 with a bad economy, no guarantee of work, and a brand new shop note to pay every month. Through his work ethic and faith the business has grown beyond his expectations. He would be the first to tell you that God has blessed him with everything and that it takes determination to grow a business. He has always guaranteed his work and always will. He will also treat every customer the same as the next. Through these values he has established a culture that has loyal employees and customers. We are thankful to all of our customers in Acadiana for our growth and we look forward to helping you in the future!
