Nassau, Bahamas: Two young Bahamians Erin and Eldin Ferguson, the owners of CoCo-Nuts Bahama Grill Ltd, held a press conference on Wednesday last week announcing the closure of their signature restaurant. The two young Bahamian men returned home from university to work hard and gather their fair piece of the Bahamian dream.
They opened their restaurant and served up scrumptious meals in the El Greco build just along the western strip of Bay Street. The Ferguson boys are decent, hardworking, ambitious, educated and well grounded. They like many believe in their country and wish the best for it.
They entered into a contract with Harry and Mike Pikramenos the owners of the property at El Greco. Now unlike their father Nick Pikramenos who was a DECENT and HONOURABLE Greek Bahamian, Harry and Mike are two SHYSTERS! And issued the Fergusons a contract they (Pikramenos) themselves never lived up to. And did everything to make sure the two aspiring young men would not succeed in their venture.
Mike once opened a pasta restaurant in the same building, but had to shut it down because his sticky hands kept the cash register clean. And the corrupt ways of Harry caught up with him, when his restaurant in Cable Beach ‘Johnny Canoe Cafe’ lease was suspended. And we know why that was suspended.
We at Bahamas Press know to well of these CROOKED PIKRAMENOS boys. They have brought SHAME and DISGRACE TO THEIR FATHER’S GOOD NAME in this city. These PIKRAMENOS boys are SLIMY SCUMBAGS! And here is what they did.
Back in 2001 they went to Manny, another DECENT Greek Bahamian and got a loan from their father’s friend. Manny being the GENTLEMAN HE IS could not forget how good NICK PIKRAMENOS was to him in days past. Nick employed Manny as a night auditor at the hotel. See, Manny had just lost his wife back-in-the-day and well he wanted to stay busy. So when Harry and Mike came to him for help after his successes in life Manny faithfully committed to assist. He gave them a $1.2 million loan to renovate the El Greco property, bring it back to its days of glory.
But guess what? To this very day them two SHYSTERS have not paid a dime back to their father’s friend. Now, to put this context we ask this. If Harry and Mike could not be honest and forthright with their father’s friend, a fellow Greek Bahamian, do you think Erin and Eldin would get an honest deal with them?
The Ferguson boys not only proved they paid the Pikeramenos CROOKS on-time but produced to the entire Bahamian community signed copies of the receipts of payment for one year. (CLICK TO SEE Signed Receipts of the Rent letter-of-payment)
We at Bahamas Press could not be more proud of the professionalism and forthrightness of these Ferguson boys. Their story reminds us of the THOUSANDS of YOUNG DECENT PROFESSIONALS who are now demanding CHANGE this NEW BAHAMAS. To Erin and Eldin we wish you every success for we know this is just a test! And hope you both have filed another writ in the Supreme Court to deal with that WICKED ATTEMPT BY THOSE CUNNING PIKAMENOS BOYS who sought to publicly BESMIRCH your good names.
