Rep. Coleman Statement on Passing of Percy “Frenchy” Creuzot, Jr. 

(Houston)//– State Representative Garnet F. Coleman (D-Houston) today released the following statement upon the passing of Percy “Frenchy” Creuzot, Jr.:

“Percy Creuzot was a business pioneer in Houston, a community leader and a community steward. Through his restaurants and generous financial support of community needs (continued by his children), Percy Creuzot touched the lives of so many people in his community,” said Representative Coleman. “We’ve lost a family friend. For anyone else who has frequented the Creuzot family restaurants, they feel the same.”

 

“Percy Creuzot demonstrated that African Americans could be successful in developing a small, customer-oriented and wholesale business venture that has been around for forty years, now going on another forty. The reason it feels like he’s family to so many is because Frenchy’s is a family business. My condolences to his wife, children, grandchildren and his entire family.”
