College of DuPage – Waterleaf Success and Popularity?

DuPage Co. (ECWd)

“Waterleaf Employment Referral Program”

“Expires 09/04/2015”

“Due to the success and popularity of Waterleaf restaurant, General Manager Jean Pierre Leroux is searching to fill positions at the College’s fine-dining establishment. Jean Pierre – in conjunction with Human Resources – has developed an Employee Referral Program to assist in the successful staffing of the restaurant.” 

Is there anyone that can explain how the manager of a restaurant that has lost approximately $2 Million Dollars since opening – a loss of over $500,000 per year – can make a claim they need employees because of their success and popularity?

The only word I could come up with when the information was provided was Delusional

  1. I was Mr. Leroux’ assistant at The Mayfair Regent in Chicago. He is the consummate professional and above reproach. It is common for a restaurant to not be profitable for approximately the first seven years of operation. Owning and operating a restaurant is a long-term, risky, investment. I can assure you that the operation of Waterleaf is in the best hands with Mr. Leroux.

    • So show me where in the statute for the Community college Act that its OK to loose money for seven years in hopes of it making money? Show me where its a College’s place to take such risks with taxpayer money? You fail to see the point in the article. They claim they are successful when in fact they have not been successful. In fact, their loss is even greater because they failed to include any of the overhead expenses of the facility like power, water, gas, etc.

  2. Another scam and fraud would better describe what this nitwit is about to do. Trustees should put a hold on any employment activity until a total review and audit is complete and future action determines.

  3. How about megalomaniac? After all, he is the progeny of Robert Breuder.
