Bryan Parker
Distribution Center's Man of Many Hats

Bryan Parker has been with Home Furniture Plus Bedding at the Distribution Center since 2015.  He began his career as a furniture prepper but his many talents have propelled him into fulfilling many duties such as loading trucks, receiving, cleaning, and even maintaining the flower beds. Prior to joining our team, Bryan worked at the Petroleum Club in Lafayette, LA.

This “Man of Many Hats” says, “I can and have done every position needed whenever called upon except driving machinery and delivery trucks!”

Faith Dorsey, Co-Distribution Center Manager adds: “Parker wears many hats daily and his versatility speaks for itself. Whether he’s in prep; keeping our warehouse in tip-top shape, delivering furniture, or in the flower bed he takes great pride in completing all tasks efficiently. Most importantly, he does it with a smile on his face and his great sense of humor fills the room with laughter. If ever I need a task done I know exactly who to call.” 

What do you like best about your job? 

When asked what he likes most about his job Bryan said, “I like the atmosphere and the people. I don't come here just for the money. I love getting up in the morning, coming to work, and being the best I can be on a daily basis.” 

Dwayne Arceneaux, Home Furniture Company President adds: “Bryan is an MVP within our organization. Whenever and wherever there is a need, he is always the first to step up. He approaches every task with focus and enthusiasm and takes great pride in everything he does. Not only is he one of our hardest workers, but he also brings a contagious attitude and energy to the job every day. We are lucky to have him on our team and we are proud of the way he represents our company.” 

When Bryan is not at work: 

When Bryan is not working he can be found fishing or spending time with his newest 5-month-old grandchild, Rylan. Bryan also says, “I love spending time at home with my fiancé Stephanie, my mom, and my siblings as well. Work, family, my grandson, and fishing. That’s my life! I also occasionally pressure wash houses and maintain flower beds as side jobs.” 

The ONE thing most co-workers may not know:

“When I was 11 years old, I was the batboy for the Lafayette Drillers Semi-Pro baseball team. I was very good at baseball! I always made the All-Star team every season and at the age of 14, I was clocked by a professional scout throwing a fastball at 92 mph! I’ve always had a passion for playing professional baseball, specifically for the San Francisco Giants! Let’s just say that I would’ve been the next “Louisiana Lightning!” I still play recreational softball, and man, we compete! I also coached a 9-, 10-, and 11-year-old girl’s softball team for 6 years, and we won 5 championships out of those 6 years,” says Bryan.  

Advice for anyone wishing to join our Home Furniture Team:

When asked what advice he would give to anyone wishing to join the Home Furniture Team Bryan said, “Home Furniture is a good company to work for. They care about you and your family. You can make a good career here, but it’s all up to you and how bad you want it. Remember, you gotta crawl before you can walk. You gotta earn it and NEVER give up!”

Born and raised in Lafayette, LA, Bryan resides in his hometown with his fiancé, Stephanie Boudreaux.
