Restaurant Kickstart – Is on a quest to discover, invest in and launch America’s next generation of epicurean superstars. Each week, two teams will make their case to our investors, Bastianich and Love, for a shot at launching a temporary version of their great concept for a restaurant or a specialty food shop … be it a bakery, a cotton candy bar, a sausage shop. Under the watchful eye of restaurateur and culinary consultant, Waylynn Lucas, the chosen team has two days and $7,500 to launch a pop-up restaurant, or a store, or a product presentation, come up with a branding campaign and research and write-up a business plan. Then we’ll open the doors and test the concept on the public. At the end of the process, our two investors will decide whether or not they will put their own money on the line to make someone’s dreams come true. And, if everything goes according to plan, make millions for the entrepreneurs and, even more importantly, for themselves!
