Amy's Baking Company From Kitchen Nightmares To Close

Amy's Baking Company in Scottsdale, Arizona which was featured on season 6 of Kitchen Nightmares will soon close if the sale of their restaurant goes through.  They are in negotiations to sell their property and the prospective buyers are from France.  The deal is expected to be finalized next month if the new owners get their visa and immigration approvals.

The Phoenix Business Journal first reported the news and said that if the sale goes through Amy and Samy Bouzaglo will still continue to make desserts.  They plan on selling custom-made desserts and pastries to restaurants, caterers, and other businesses.  Amy also plans to make online instructional cooking videos and have an online cooking school featuring desserts that she makes.

Amy's Baking Company is the most popular episode of Kitchen Nightmares ever due to Gordon Ramsay walking out during their episode and the story going viral after the episode aired.  After the episode aired, fans of the show were outspoken against the restaurant and Amy's Baking Company responded to many of those fans and verbally attacked and insulted them.  Amy's Baking Company claims their restaurant's Facebook Page was hacked and they didn't post any of those insults.

When/If the sale goes through and the restaurant closes, the Kitchen Nightmares Updates Page will be updated to show Amy's Baking Company as closed.

UPDATE - On 9/1/2015, Amy's Baking Company officially closed.

Chiarella's Ristorante From Kitchen Nightmares Has Closed

Chiarella's Ristorante in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania which was featured on season 5 of Kitchen Nightmares has closed. Their last day of business was June 30, 2015 and they said they closed due to the landlord pushing them out after their lease ended.  Owner Dina Chiarella was quoted in a article as saying, "We're not closing because we want to close."  Dina also seems to be replying to people's negative comments about the restaurant on another local article  

It isn't know if Chiarella's will try to open elsewhere, but the restaurant hasn't posted anything about the closure on their Facebook page.
