Amy's Baking Company - A History of Kitchen Nightmares - The Original Story by Phoenix New Times

What began in 2010 as an angry tirade on Yelp by Amy Bouzaglo, owner of Amy's Baking Company in Scottsdale, blew up into a complete Internet meltdown. After ABC was featured on Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares, people from across the country descended on the restaurant's Yelp page to post negative reviews. Of course Reddit and Facebook got into the mix too. Check out our coverage of the complete story in the links below.
