Better Business Bureau Kicks Out Four Businesses

What can you do if you’re too small to have a shot in our Worst Company In America contest, but too awful to not earn some sort of notoriety? Well, you can get your BBB membership revoked and earn a big fat F ranking. It’s no golden poo, but it’s a start.

This is from the BBB in Buffalo, NY, so all four businesses are New York Based. Two of them, AC Design & Construction and Black Tie Catering, will probably only matter to locals., also doing business as, has a couple of web presences, but they’re both down as of this post and the company may be out of business (which may explain partly why they earned the F rating to begin with). is still up and running though, so watch out. The “F” in “fireplace” stands for BBB FAIL in this case.
