Hosted by Tyler Florence, Food Court Wars pits two teams of aspiring food entrepreneurs against one another as they battle to win their own food court restaurant, rent-free for a year. Each week it’s a different U.S. city mall. The mall wants to open a brand-new “local” eatery in the food court that offers a fresh region-specific menu. Stakes are high as teams must test their concept, market their brand, and run their outlet for a full day feeding hungry shoppers. The team whose restaurant makes the most profit wins their eatery space – a prize worth $100,000! The losing team must vacate the premises.

Host Tyler Florence heads to Traverse City, Michigan, where husband and wife, Nick and Autumn, combine their love of music with their fondness for food when they opened their rock-and-roll hot dog restaurant. With only seasonal business and a cursed location, they hope to expand their brand so Nick can quit his construction work and focus solely on their hot dog business. Best friends Matt and Matt not only share the same name, but also share a passion for beignets which they hope to transform into a broader, successful culinary concept. These two teams will face-off to prove that they have what it takes to win over the hungry residents of Traverse City, Mich.
