Amy's Baking Company Amends That Crazy Worker Contract

Screengrab: Kitchen Nightmares

In what's basically a glorified ICYMI recap by the Daily Mail, Samy and Amy Bouzaglo, the infamous couple behind Kitchen Nightmare Amy's Baking Company, talk about the alleged online hacking ("one of the hackers is a minor, but we know who he is"), possible deportation ("if we have to leave and go to Israel, then we have to leave"), and death threats that came after their episode aired in May. In the article, they say they've amended some of the more insane aspects in that employment contract leaked online two weeks ago. (In addition to a non-compete clause, the document had prospective employees agree to rules against "unnecessary talking," penalties for not showing up to work, and an acknowledgment that "any and all 'tips' are property of the 'house.'")

Amy Bouzaglo says they "no longer include the non-compete clause in their contract" and claims to give servers their earned tips: "Since the show, we recognize the outcry and now we're giving the servers their tips. It would still work out in their favour to be be paid hourly, but now they're guaranteed to make a minimum of $7.80 an hour." (The original inspiration for not giving servers tips: tipping systems in China and Europe.) Also, because Amy's Baking Co. has become a "summer tourist attraction," the Bouzaglo's will soon offer t-shirts for sale with slogans like "I survived Amy's Baking Company," "Here's your pizza, go f**k yourself," and "I speak Feline, MEOW!!"
