So…….if you’re not doing anything tomorrow and wanna go watch a train wreck happen live in Scottsdale, AZ, Amy’s Baking Company from recent Kitchen Nightmares with Gordon Ramsey fame is set to re-open after a disastrous couple of weeks. No idea what I am talking about? Well then wow, have I got something you need to watch…
After this episode aired, Amy and Samy took to Amy’s Baking Company’s Facebook page to defend themselves…
And the above is just a TASTE of the lunacy they were posting on Facebook before they went with the old, “we’ve been hacked” excuse.
Here is the press release they gave for tomorrow night’s grand re-opening…
Other Side of Amy’s Baking Company Controversy in Scottsdale To Soon Be Told
SCOTTSDALE, AZ. MAY 15, 2013 — Amy’s Baking Company will host a Grand Re-Opening on Tuesday night, May 21, following unflattering portrayals on national television.
Customers will be able to decide who is correct: a famous celebrity chef or the marketplace that has supported the small, locally-owned business for six years.
When re-opened, a portion of proceeds will benefit a charity organized to bring awareness to cyber bullying.
Seating is limited. Reservations may be made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Diners will also have the opportunity to meet, and judge for themselves the character of owners Amy and Samy Bouzaglo, who have devoted their lives to and earn their living from their small restaurant. The Bouzaglos have been married for 10 years, after Sammy emigrated from Israel.
The owners will likely be holding a press conference before the Grand Re-Opening and answer falsehoods depicted on a reality television show, including assertions that the restaurant confiscates tips from servers.
In fact, wait staff is paid $8-$14 per hour, two and half to nearly five times the standard hourly wage for servers.
Questions will also be answered about what happened to their Facebook page.
Amy’s Baking Company was recently featured on the hit PBS show “Check Please” and has received A+ reports from CBS 5 for kitchen preparedness.
“We are very upset by what has taken place, apologize about the acrimony that has ensued but now must fight back to save our business. We hope and believe much good can result from what has transpired. We ask the public to keep an open mind as we begin to tell our side of the story,” Samy Bouzaglo said.
So yeah. Needless to say, tomorrows grand re-opening might come with more fireworks than AmericaFest at the Rose Bowl. If you’re not doing anything and wanna go watch this train wreck live and in person tomorrow, here’s where Amy’s Baking Company is in Arizona….and if you do go, please dear god call 866-931-JACK and tell us about it..
