Despite the moderate success of last week’s “Grand Re-Opening,” Amy’s Baking Company has managed to scare off another batch of “haters.”
This past Friday, a reporter from the Phoenix Business Journal visited the restaurant with a few friends, only to be kicked out by infamous co-owner Samy Bouzaglo. Yikes, is this #9 on ways to ruin your restaurant?
Reporter Hayley Ringle reports that she and her friends “went in with an open mind,” hoping to get a firsthand account of Amy’s Baking Company and its dubious owners. However, after finding fruit flies in not one, but three different cocktails, she and her friends were kicked out of the restaurant by Samy after complaining about their drinks. On the bright side, at least he offered to pay for all of their untouched cocktails before showing them the door.

In the end, she and her party ended up at nearby Pita Jungle — a “super busy and very friendly” alternative to those still hungry after being unceremoniously kicked out of Amy’s Baking Company.
