Amy's Baking Company announces new reality seriesPosted: Updated:
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- The owners of a now infamous Scottsdale restaurant are set to make their return to reality television.
Samy and Amy Bouzaglo, owners of Amy’s Baking Company, have announced on their Facebook page that they’re hiring servers and bussers for their next reality series.
Samy and Amy gained notoriety during their appearance on Gordon Ramsay’s popular Fox program Kitchen Nightmares.
The couple shocked viewers with their treatment of employees, customers and even Ramsay.
During the episode it was revealed that Samy and Amy weren’t giving their wait staff tips, and that they had fired approximately 50 employees in just a year.
Having ultimately decided that he couldn’t help their business, Ramsay left Amy’s Baking Company without fulfilling his duties to help turn around the restaurant.
Before their episode of Kitchen Nightmares aired, Amy took to Facebook to proclaim, “We do not feel the need to make any excuses for our behavior on tonight’s show.”
Amy also made local news three years ago when she personally attacked a man on Yelp after he posted a less than positive review about Amy’s Baking Company.
Judging by the comments on the restaurant’s Facebook page, the recent run of bad publicity might make it difficult for Amy’s Baking Company to find employees for the new show.
“Are you providing combat pay?” one person asked, while another chimed in with “It’s sad when I hold Honey Boo Boo in a higher regard.”
A channel and debut date for the new reality show has not yet been announced.
