Restaurant Startup on CNBC is looking for camera-friendly patrons to eat ands critique the contestants food.  This is a brief, casual dining experience; friends and family are welcome to join!


Here’s a brief rundown of our show:

Two culinary teams are selected to pitch their business to Joe Bastianich and Tim Love with the hopes of receiving an investment to expand their business. Typically these businesses are food trucks, pop-ups or concepts looking to establish a brick and mortar. Only one business is chosen to move forward; given $7,500 and 36 hours to prepare.  Our consultant, Antonia Lofaso, prepares the team to launch their food, service and concept to the public.  Following the launch service, Joe & Tim decide if they’re willing to put their money on the line.
