Statewide businesses offering English and French speaking employees is hard to find, especially if you don't know where to look, but one group is looking to change that.

The state-run program The Council for the Development of French in Louisiana or CODOFIL, an organization that strives to preserve Louisiana's rich, French culture, is making it a little easier for consumers to locate French friendly establishments with labels.

According to Erin Stickney with CODOFIL, any business organization that promotes French in Louisiana that makes a solid effort to offer services in French will get the Franco Responsible logo. It's a logo that would be put in their window or door designating them French responsible so everyone knows that it's ok to speak French in that business.

For more information on what establishments are labeled French friendly, you can go to CODOFIL's website at www.codofil.org
