American Factory Direct Furniture is a third generation family owned and operated business. Owners Bob and Billie Comeaux have kept the original business philosophy that Bob's father started in 1937, but with an added twist. Bob's father was known in New Orleans as "The Discount King". When Billie joined the business, it brought the designer look. Their concept is simple: "A designer look at factory direct pricing with local service."
How did this legacy begin? If it's true that opposites attract, it's also true that they make great business partners. Such was the case with Bob and Billie. In 1974 they were married, and with that, a marriage of price and design was born. "We went to the Highpoint, North Carolina furniture market for our honeymoon and it's been furniture ever since", laughs Billie. Bob has always been about price... Billie is all about design... the combination of the two was the key to their early success.
Bob and Billie both consider themselves blessed with individual talents, but do not take credit for their success in business. "Looking back, we see how God has had his hand in our business and our family", states Billie. After the original store closed in the early 1990s, what originally seemed like a major setback, turned into a great blessing.
In 1996, Bob and Billie opened American Factory Direct Furniture's Mandeville location. In the spring of 2008, they opened their state of the art Distribution Center. Since then, they have opened locations in Long Beach, Mississippi and Baton Rouge, Louisiana. This has added to their buying power, enabling even better prices for their customers. Fortunately, each have been blessed with individual talents, making American Factory Direct Furniture very competitive. Bob is a great merchandiser, while Billie has the talent to make the showroom look like a designer's showcase. The next generation is positioning the company for further growth. Bob and Billie's son David is a wonderful Chief of Inventory Manager, while their daughter Grace has a knack for efficiency and bottom line results.
"The growth of the company has gone far beyond our expectations", states Billie. "I believe that God has given us a purpose in this business, and it's through his Grace that our family has had the opportunity to positively affect so many lives. We have a wonderful team of associates who are our extended family and we pride ourselves on the level of service that we are able to offer, including our discount pricing."
