DESCRIPTION:
(from CNBC's press release, October 2016) Billionaire Tilman Fertitta is back on the hunt for exciting new products and a purchase order from the hospitality mogul could change lives forever. CNBC's "Billion Dollar Buyer" returns for its second season with 12 new episodes beginning Tuesday, November 22 at 10PM ET, immediately following an all-new episode of "The Profit" at 9PM ET. "Billion Dollar Buyer" introduces promising companies across the country to one of America's most successful businessmen: Tilman Fertitta, Chairman, CEO, and sole shareholder of Landry's, Inc. Fertitta oversees more than 500 properties and over 50 leading restaurant, hotel, and entertainment brands, ranging from high-end properties like Mastro's and Morton's The Steakhouse, to such mainstream destinations as Rainforest Cafe, Bubba Gump Shrimp Co., Saltgrass Steak House, and five Golden Nugget Casinos. With an annual supply spend of $2 billion, his buying power is second to none. Now, he's personally scouting the country for the most innovative new products America's entrepreneurs have to offer - everything from food and drink for his restaurants and casinos, to furniture and lighting for his hotels. In each hour-long episode, Fertitta will spend time with two small businesses, sample their goods, get to know their owners, and assess their compatibility with Landry's, Inc. He'll point out flaws in their product and operations, share his expertise, and push for improvements. In the end, he'll decide whether to place a transformative purchase order with one of the companies, both, or neither.
