DESCRIPTION:
(from CNBC's press release, October 2014) CNBC announced today that season two of the popular primetime series "Restaurant Startup" will premiere on Tuesday, January 13 at 10PM ET/PT. Produced by Shine America, the ten original one-hour episodes will feature restaurateurs, Joe Bastianich and Tim Love, who vie to invest their own money in restaurant concepts they believe could make them millions. Joining them this season is chef, restaurateur and TV personality, Antonia Lofaso, who will help guide the hungry entrepreneurs as they are put to the ultimate test: opening a restaurant! Each week on "Restaurant Startup," two teams, selected from hundreds of applicants, are invited to pitch their food ideas to the investors, Bastianich and Love. But, only one will receive the opportunity of a lifetime. The chosen team is given the keys to a working restaurant on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles. They get 36 hours and $7,500 to put their dream to the test and create a business plan; come up with a branding campaign; and finally, launch their pop-up restaurant. Under the watchful eye of Bastianich and Love's culinary consultant Antonia Lofaso, the aspiring food moguls open their doors, serve their food and test their concept on the public.
