In 1933, former student Dione Lucas helped to open a school under the Le Cordon Bleu name in London, England. In the United States, 16 schools used to operate under the “Le Cordon Bleu North America” name through a licensing agreement with Career Education Corporation (CEC), a for-profit education company based in Chicago, Illinois. In 2009, the license was estimated to be worth $135 million.  In 2014, Le Cordon Bleu North America generated $178.6 million in revenue and $70.6 million of operating losses. However, in light of the gainful employment rules implemented by the US Department of Education in 2015, CEC, which owned and operated the US schools, made the decision to sell the 16 campuses. When they failed to find a buyer they announced on 16 December 2015 that they will close all 16 Cordon Bleu campuses in the United States teaching out the program through September 2017. Their last new students were accepted in January 2016. In June 2016, The Securities and Exchange Commission requested documents and information regarding Career Education’s fourth quarter 2014 classification of its Le Cordon Bleu campuses. Le Cordon Bleu has continued to maintain a presence in the United States through their New York office, Le Cordon Bleu Inc., which places U.S. students in one of the school’s global locations.
