Jamawn Woods May Get Settlement From Chipotle For Soul Daddy Failure

Jamawn Woods kept quiet when Soul Daddy, the restaurant he opened after winning America's Next Great Restaurant, shuttered its three locations just a month after opening. But today, he opened up to TMZ and told them his theory of why the chain closed: it was all Chipotle's fault. He explained that Chipotle maimed Soul Daddy by giving him an incompetent management team, which helps explain its disastrous failure. Now, according to the report, Woods is in talks with Chipotle to receive a monetary settlement for its gaffes.

Chipotle has already lost $2.4 million on the Soul Daddy chain -- how much more will they be able to spend?
