    Amy's Baking Company

    Has anyone been reading about this today?

    They were on Kitchen Nightmares on Friday and the internet blew up as the owners went batshit crazy on Facebook, Reddit, and Yelp yesterday and today.

    It started with this:

    Watch Gordon Ramsay Give Up on Delusional Restaurant Owners in Kitchen Nightmares - Video Interlude - Eater National

    Summary of social media meltdown:

    How Not To React To Internet Criticism: The Epic Facebook Meltdown Of Amy?s Baking Company ? Consumerist

    Here is their Facebook page which still has all of the juicy bits as of 5:30 on 5/14/2013.

    https://www.facebook.com/amysbakingco

    There are plenty of screen grabs floating around the interwebs in case they get a clue and clean up their Facebook page. Any of our AZ OC'ers been to this place and have a juicy story?

    I watched the last 10 minutes of that episode on television. The owners were, in fact, batshizz.

    I was in there last Fall but it wasn't as EPIC as the latest, just crappy food and even crappier service both of which I can get at home so I have no motivation to return there.

    Wow, I just don't see how a small business owner can be this tone deaf towards running a restaurant and expect to stay in business. The meltdown is hilarious but sure to keep paying customers away, at least in the long run. I'd like to meet Amy and Sammy for sheer entertainment though. I don't watch Kitchen Nightmares but I'll have to keep an eye out for the rerun.

    Anybody else notice that the percentage of crazy goes up in owners of small business. The craziest bosses I've ever had were all small business. Just too nuts to get on anywhere else so the only option they got is to start a business. Oh, I've had some good bosses at small businesses too, but it's like they say: Those who can, do. Those who can't start their own business.

    One of my friends is trying to get down there this weekend since he lives in town. He's a big MMA dork that likes getting punched in the head, so it could interesting.

    I gotta say that this social media meltdown trumps the ones I've witnessed here on mtbr, though there were some priceless ones here, too.

    I watched the episode on Kitchen Nightmares last week. Ramsay had a full plate with that train wreck!

    FB posts are good. I really need to get on this Facebook thing

    104% chance she has her own reality show this time next month.

    Wow. That is one serious meltdown that most likely ruined it for their business. The Facebook page is great.

    She definitely married him for the money. After this show aired some guys did some research and found out she was actually in large debt before marrying this guy and went to lengths of changing her name/identity in hopes to evade it.

    Episode was pretty good, owners were nuts.

    Is it just me though? That Bleu Ribbon burger looked pretty good. It may have been over sauced with the aioli and the truffle oil, but Im ok when burgers juice out in my hands...mmmmm sooooooo good.

    Ha ha, I saw that episode. I thought that burger looked pretty good too, minus the drippy bun.

    What kind of a moron gets an opportunity to have Ramsay come in, train your people, upgrade your equipment, and then throws it away? The kind that own Amy's Baking Company.

    The episode started with her telling Chef how she melted down on Yelp due to a bad review.

    I guess they expected him to tell them that they are perfect and the only reason their restaurant is failing is that all those ungrateful wretches in the general public simply fail to recognize their greatness.



    This article's got some updates that're good for some lulz as well.

    Don't worry, they'll be out of business soon enough. I read an article called "the secrets the reality shows don't tell you" (or something like that), and one of them was that almost all of the restaurants featured on Kitchen Nightmares fail anyway. Of the 20-something restaurants featured in the first two seasons, only two were still open a year later. The restaurant business is hard as it is, and these restaurants are on the show because they are already in trouble. A dining room makeover and some new appliances aren't going to help if the owners are bad at business to begin with.
    Speed solves all problems, except for those things it makes worse.

    She seems to have an impulse control problem and can't stop losing it and berating people. She should probably stay off the internet.

    Amy's husband Samy is no prize either... taking the waitstaff tips. He wanted to fight the customers and Gordon, saying "I am the gangster, not you!"

    she's setting up a new fb page every day.

    https://www.facebook.com/pages/Offic...56038571106822

    This is from yesterday.

    https://www.facebook.com/pages/Amys-...923625?fref=ts

    The funny thing is in the second page, she says that Gordon physically slaps and punches them and she has a screenshot "as proof." He's just standing there talking with his hands up. hahaha.

    She's a nutter.

    Here's a few recent posts by Amy on the new FB page:

    YES we are working and open today and we have a friend helping us on the page to ban the reddits and YELPers. So keep posting, you will eventually be GONE! God is ALWAYS on our side and it shows today because business is GREAT!

    HATERS won't bring us down! We are stopping everyone from posting vicious messages here! We are only allowing POSITIVE COMMENTS so go away if you don't have anything NICE TO SAY
    Amy & Samy

    Nice to see that they will only listen to the positive feedback and with god on their side how can they lose?!

    Here is her explanation for why she is stealing her waitstaff's tips:
    "Servers in European countries are paid by the hour NOT TIPPED!!! Why is it stealing for us to take the tips for OUR HARD WORK but its perfectly okay for Europeans to do it?!"

    I wonder how much Samy paid to have Amy shipped over from mother Russia to be his wife.
    This woman is the definition of bat$&1@ crazy. That position was previously held by former Auburn football assistant coach Gus Malzahn's wife.

    That's hilarious since I saw a post of hers where she wrote that "reselling" packaged food is the American way, and that's why they lied to Ramsay about their food being fresh - he's European so he wouldn't understand.

    She not only talks out of both sides of her mouth, she talks on both sides of the Atlantic ocean.

    She's not crazy! She sez so!

    "All this hate is because I am a Woman!!! The patriarchy of male chefs hates the fact that a strong woman like myself can cook such perfect food that they have to spread lies and falsify and edit a TV show to make me look crazy! I AM NOT CRAZY! I'M A WOMAN!"

    Yes, they are together for a reason. The expression "two peas in a pod" comes to mind...







    Absolutely completely batshit crazy. Both of them.

    I'm betting she's lousy at most everything in life. Including in bed. Because everything she does is perfect. In her imagination. Woman has epic fail written all over everything she touches, with her venomous tongue. I'm betting she's massively bi polar and off her meds.

    I actually watched clip of Gordan when he was having the final conversation with the owners. I've always felt the show was heavily scripted and spliced together for the dramatic effect. The way he held up and gave a final monologue appeared to be very sincere on his part. I found that remarkable. I'm not convinced I could have reacted so calmly.

    Quit bragging her up. It's hard enough for me to resist her charms. I've already map quested the driving hours from my house to Arizona.

    Holy ish!! I hadn't heard about this until now . . . watched the YouTube clip, and the guys that got yelled at and thrown out of the restaurant are close friends of my wife and I. The guy in the red shirt and my wife were close friends in high school. Too funny . . . we knew they went to a taping of the show, but I guess they weren't allowed to say anything until the show aired.
    Alcohol may lead nowhere, but it sure is the scenic route!

    I want to work for people who steal from me. And probably scream at me whenever they make mistakes or something goes wrong. I'll apply.


    That all caps really is a nice touch.

    I love how they have an "As seen on" ad from some PBS show. Why not a Kitchen Nightmares one too? Chickens!!!

    And there was this post:

    https://www.facebook.com/amysbakingc...51538903477900

    I like the comment about having dissatisfied customers and former employees picketing their "grand re-opening".

    there's also a change.org petition requesting ABC be investigated for the tip theft by the DOL

    They are being investigated by the FBI over allegedly making death threats. This just gets better everyday.

    Man, I'm gone from the internet for a couple days and the whole world turns to $hit.

    On the other hand, this is some great entertainment. Amy was attractive until those noises started coming out of her mouth.
    Sometimes, I question the value of my content.

    ...Amy's Baking Company (ABC) in Scottsdale, AZ, has come out publicly that their policy is to confiscate every single penny earned through tipping patrons, without informing customers, and instead, only pay their servers an hourly wage....

    So I watched the episode last night from On Demand and I can honestly say that everything posted on FB and elsewhere by Samy or Amy comes as no surprise. From the very first time she opened her mouth there was this edge to her, she has this really frightening manic energy to her. She also seems paranoid because even if the waitstaff or Ramsay would ask her a simple question she would immediately fly into a rage accusing people of undermining her. She lives in massive denial and is incapable of simply listening to other people. And it's true, they take all the wait staff's tips-really jaw dropping. It sounds like they have been through 50-100 employees in the past year or so and that's no surprise. And finally they really do rip into customers. I honestly can't believe that they have been in business for the two years or whatever its been. Its a good episode and its worth watching because those outbursts are something else.

    I'm not so sure I would want to hook up with her though, for one thing there would be a constant argument about performance, position, etc.

    There's a grand reopening on Tuesday the 21st (if they can hire staff, that is). You Arizona folks should drop by, its going to be one crazy circus.

    ^ I'm no lawyer but that allegation seems to be walking right up to the line, if not crossing it. It's one thing to troll the idiots, it's another to find John Law at your door with a subpoena.

    The husband was in immigration court today, seems his extensive criminal record in Europe is getting him deported. He is banned from Germany and France, soon the U.S.

    If that owner guy balked me aggressively like he did that guy in his restaurant, i would have put about 5 on his chin before he hit the ground, im not joking either, i would have used the self defence defence.
    And that woman is a spoilt brat, she needed a female boxer to come in and punch the absolute shit out of her, if theres ever an example of two people who would have benefited from being silenced and humbled by the fist, its these two.
    Totally unbelievable.

    that guy you are referring to is a good friend of my wife and I . . . you should hear his version of the story about the parts that didn't air.

    I swear Amy is going to explode one of these days, I mean literally explode all over the place. Her crazy energy is completely off the charts. And the raging paranoia - yikes! They really do need help but since they're convinced everybody is out to get them I don't see it happening.
