R.J. Melman, the President of Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises, joined Bob Sirott to talk about the Employee Emergency Relief Fund they set up. The Melman family has pledged $1 Million to their employees to get it started. Several of their restaurants are joining forces to create family meals, providing three meals a day for one week, all that feed a family of four for $50 from some of the “LEYE” spots like RPM Italian, Bub City, Ramen-San, il Porcellino and more.
