Townhouse's Scelfo joining City Club at River Ranch
Paul Scelfo, general manager of Townhouse Restaurant and Caterer, the Oil Center facility that closed its doors yesterday, is moving over to City Club at River Ranch. A source close to the City Club says Scelfo will head the catering operation, assuming duties most recently held by Joe Broussard.
It remains unclear whether Townhouse will continue to offer catering services, though it is honoring all events already on its books. In a letter to employees, Townhouse owner Art LeBlanc noted that catering would continue for "a considerable period of time." Should Townhouse shutter its catering operation altogether, it is likely additional employees will move over to City Club with Scelfo.
Scelfo, who joins City Club later this month, could not be reached for comment this morning.
Frank’s Casing Crew, now doing business as Frank’s International, will make its final appearance on ABiz’s list of the Top 50 Privately Held Companies in Acadiana this year, and once again it will likely be at the top with more than $1 billion in annual revenues. The 75-year-old company specializing in tubular fabrication and installation services to the oil and gas industry plans to offer shares of its stock to the public for the first time.
The defeat, or rather highjacking of House Bill 420 in the final days of this year's Legislative Session, say Reps. Vincent Pierre and Terry Landry, is the result of the propaganda spread by one unidentified local media outlet and an unnamed former state Representative, but nothing to do with the original legislation's lack of checks, balances or details.
