Are YOU a Food Entrepreneur?

Supermarket Superstars

Growing up the eldest of 5 children made me a naturally bossy person. My family likes to joke that it’s the reason I’ve almost always wanted to own my own business – except for the short time I wanted to be horse Jockey but puberty quickly ruled that out. Either way, I ended up going off to college for a degree in business. With my first job as I teenager I developed a propensity to spend my time thinking of ways to improve existing concepts and ideas.

But with entrepreneurship there are many avenues to be taken. I prefer to work with ideas and concepts where as others prefer to work with their hands. My great grandfather spent his entire life inventing things. His garden is full of contraptions that spin, shade, water and cultivate his precious plants. My cousin can create works of art so life like they take your breath away.  But it’s my grandmother specialty that I can most appreciate. She can create a delicious new recipe just by digging through her pantry. I’ve tried convincing her that she could be the next Celebrity Chef but maybe I wasn’t thinking along the right avenue.

Supermarket Superstars

The new series Supermarket Superstar on Lifetime (premiering Monday, July 22nd at 10ET/PT) gives undiscovered food entrepreneurs a chance to compete for their ideas and inventions to  become the NEXT big deal. Where do I sign her up at?! I know she has a winner in her recipe book somewhere.

Each one-hour episode of “Supermarket Superstar” follows three home chefs as they pitch their product concepts to some of the most successful names in the food world.  I’m talking about names like cookie mogul Debbi Fields of Mrs. Fields. They’re competing for the opportunity to have their creation launched nationally in a major grocery chain.The contestants are competing for a serious prize too – $10,000 in prize money and $100,000 worth of product development. Needless to say someones dreams will be coming true.

    My husband and I would like to have a small restaurant in the front and a martial arts training area in the back. That is what we are working toward.
