Local businessman and African-American community stalwart, Kurte Pellerin, cuts through the red tape and ribbon to his new business - The Regency Reception Hall in New Orleans East.
New Orleans, La - As developers, retailers and city officials continue to drudge through the logistics necessary to advance the agenda for growth in New Orleans East, a community vital to the city’s recovery as a whole, one gentleman is putting his investment dollars where his heart is. Kurte Pellerin, accompanied by State Representative Cedric Richmond and a crowd of festive and enthusiastic local residents, ceremoniously cut the ribbon to his second New Orleans based business on Saturday, September 19th.
During Saturday’s ceremony, Representative Richmond spoke fondly of his memories of BBH Leather, one of Pellerins earliest entrepreneurial endeavors. “I recall as a young boy being proud and inspired by Kurte’s business ownership every time I walked pass BBH and Ebony Square, and I continue to be impressed today by his courage, dedication and hard work.” Presenting him with the City Council Proclamation, on behalf of Councilwoman Hedge-Morrell, Richmond lauded Pellerin’s efforts and encouraged the citizens of New Orleans to continue to support his businesses, asserting that “Kurte’s reinvestment into this community is a commendable first step, but citizen support will be what drives the success of businesses in the area."
The Regency Reception Hall, operating under the auspices of KMP, llc is a heroic example of one man’s commitment to the restoration, rebuilding and recovery of "America’s City". And though care may have once forgotten our fine city, it is heartening to know that gentlemen like Mr. Pellerin have not.
