Company Behavior Summary

  • The Atlas Group faced a lot of backlash when a video surfaced on social media showing an Atlas Group restaurant denying service to a black woman and her nine-year-old son due to the boy's clothing. In a video shared on social media, Marcia Grant and her child, Dallas, were repeatedly told by a manager at Ouzo Bay Restaurant that they could not eat there because of their dress code prohibiting athletic wear. The video, which shows Grant's son wearing sneakers, gym shorts and an Air Jordan T-shirt, also recorded another child, who was white, in a similar outfit enjoying his meal at an outside table.
  • The Atlas Restaurant Group has since issued an apology and fired the two managers involved in the incident.


About The NoGo List

Which companies put profits over people? What is the latest big business scandal? Who's taking inappropriate handouts from the government?

The NOGO List was formed as a way for consumers to see what companies have been up to and make informed decisions about which companies deserve their business. We believe these actions should be public, and should not simply disappear with the next news cycle.

Our goal is to present as accurate a picture of each company as we can, so that consumers can make their own decisions. The NOGO list can be used on its own, or as a starting point for further research. Use it however you like.

Sleep better with the knowledge that you are supporting companies aligned with your values.

And, if you see that we are missing a company that belongs on this site, please submit it. We review all submissions and will include them on the site as soon as we can.
