Bikini-clad baristas will no longer be serving up coffee in Torrance.
Bikini Espresso, a four-month old drive-through coffee shop with a sexy and scantily clad staff, is already wrapping things up.
Gillett's marketing efforts included replacing his sign with a mural of a woman bathing in a coffee cup, and placing a jumpy castle outside the shop for customers -- both flagged by the city for lack of proper permits.
Torrance's Mayor Frank Scotto responsed to the accusations by calling them "ludicrous." He added, "As anybody that's in any city, there's certain rules that they have to abide by."
Gillett claims he was "losing money every day [Bikini Espresso] was open," and ultimately posted a sign saying he's "relocating to a bikini-friendly town."
