Our History 

Providing Insurance Expertise for more than Six Decades

In 1950, Landry Harris & Co. began as a simple, one-man insurance operation in Crowley, Louisiana. Our founder, Bennett Landry, was a postal worker walking his daily route – when he noticed that people kept asking him questions concerning where to get auto insurance. Sensing an opportunity to help people by offering auto insurance door to door, he founded his own business – The Landry Agency. The agency was successful from the start.

In 1977, Bennett was joined at the agency by his son, Mark Landry. In 1982, Frankie Harris joined the team. Mark and Frankie had been friends since their college days at LSU – and they shared a vision to turn the agency into more than an average personal lines insurance firm. Soon the business was growing like never before, and it continues to thrive to this day.

Now located in Lafayette, Louisiana, Landry Harris & Co. is an agency with a unique culture that values strong relationships, character, integrity and teamwork. We also pride ourselves on providing growth opportunities for our associates. As a result, our entire staff takes ownership in our agency and our client relationships. We are committed to working hard to achieve success for our clients and for ourselves.
