The Governor’s Award for Entrepreneurial Excellence will be periodically awarded by the Governor to homegrown Louisiana businesses that grow and provide more opportunity, more jobs, and more commerce for the State of Louisiana.
Governor Jindal said, “I am pleased to present the first ever Governor’s Award for Entrepreneurial Excellence to Duck Commander and the entire Robertson family. The reason for this award is the tremendous impact that Duck Commander's expansion has had on our community and on all Louisianians. In Louisiana, we have had success over the last six years in bringing more jobs and more opportunity to the state. Louisiana has now set state records for the number of people working, total population, and per-capita income levels. But, even as new businesses move here from other states, the backbone of our state is businesses like Duck Commander.
The stars of the reality show 'Duck Dynasty' have been making other news as of late, with two major sponsorships in Nascar and college football.
