The other day I published a blog about the new owners of D’Amici’s bakeries fucking over their employees by closing down the restaurant without any warning, cleaning out the cash registers, and actively collecting money for orders they knew they had no intention of filling. The chain store had been a north shore staple since 1993 until the original owners sold it to sold it to Sandrine Coyer in December of 2017. It took less than two years to destroy 24 years of good will D’Amici’s had built in the community.
Since then employees have complained that their checks bounced and they never received tip money, brides are left on the hook with no wedding cakes, and the completely oblivious nudnik owner isn’t doing shit to remedy these issues.
But wait, there’s a twist.
For starters D’Amici’s filed for bankruptcy in May.
Of course she didn’t bother telling her employees or customers this because she wanted them to keep working for free while she pocketed the cash for orders she had no intention of filling.
She raised a whopping $70 for her combined goal of $42,000 for the proposed vegan cake store, which probably should’ve been the first sign that no one believes in her shitty business model of taking a place people like and completely changing it.
According to the GFM it looks like their whole story is shady as fuck.
If you’re reading this, you are already a part of this project. Who we are. We are a family of four- Didier, Sandrine and our two daughters Cassandre and Salome- coming all the way from France and we just moved here in Boston. What a strange idea, right? After managing big department stores for 25 years in France, we decided to start a new life. Didier underwent training as a baking chef and all the family quickly got involved in the project. Soon enough, there was flour, sugar and eggs all over the kitchen. But we all went for it. What is better than having a homemade cake for a party, homemade bread for dinner or simply having a good pastry with a cup of good tea or coffee? Who has never heard about French food? French coffee? With our typical pastries like the “eclair” or the “st honoré” What we did We bought well known bakeries in the Boston area and here we are. We are already selling all kind of pastries, cakes, cookies and bread. We are also making cakes for all occasions such as weddings, birthdays, parties, baby showers, graduations etc.. And now The idea is now to bring our French touch to this world of delight. Let’s be proud of our culture and let’s share it with curious food lovers. We are ensuring that French food will come to your american mouths. These bakeries have been there for years and people love them. But why stop there? Why vegan and gluten free customers shouldn’t be able to taste our good pastries as well? Let’s make some French pastries for them as well. The goal was to bring French food to your mouths wasn’t it? Our true goal is to make it affordable and accessible for everyone. To do so, we want to associate our bakeries with causes that matter to us, with charitable organizations that we are already in touch with, with schools that help the ones who need it. With all the food we’ll produce, we believe waste should be donated, distributed to people who need it. We believe food brings everyone together, and with the small power we have, we want to use it right. We would also want to give the opportunity to people to learn how to bake with us. Giving cooking lessons would be another way of sharing our culture. It would be a great way to meet other people, sharing a moment of friendliness and joy. People would then be able to bring home a little part of France. Because what else is food if not sharing?
First of all, who the hell immigrates here from France? You don’t live a non-shithole country to come to America unless you done fucked up and you’re running away from something. But apparently they ran department stores in France for 25 years successfully, before throwing their hands up in the air and saying “fuck it, let’s start a new life in America.” Nothing shady about that whatsoever, and they totally don’t appear to be starting a new life after burning bridges in a foreign country. Also, use of terminology like “starting a new life,” is a great way to make people believe that you’re not running from problems you created in your old life.
So they started a GoFundMe to buy a successful Italian bakery in the states, which they planned to convert to a french bakery because they’re French and don’t realize that everyone outside of France thinks their food sucks. Now open your big fat American piehole and shove this eclair down your gullet.
Oh, and catering your place to vegans is wicked smart too. Worked out great for Hadassah Rose in Milford. She’s even promising to give classes, which is literally the exact same selling point Hadassah used to get vulnerable women to give her 20% of their paychecks. They’re also gonna donate extra food to feed the homeless, which is why the only thing she took with her when she left was the cash.
Now that this information is out there you would think that they’d deactivate the D’Amici’s Facebook page because everyone is posting links to the GFM and bankruptcy on the pot. But when you’re a Frenchie with no fucks to give you don’t really give a shit if people say mean things about you on the Internet I suppose.
