Live Tonight 9/8. Find out who moves on to next week's final!
The investors meet the remaining contestants on Restaurant Row to present this week's challenge. Since families drive a lot of fast-casual business, the contenders will make one healthy, kid-friendly dish that makes sense with their concept, which they'll serve to over 200 people, mostly families. Also, they'll meet with a product development team to create a promotional toy. Sudhir immediately knows this will be an uphill task for him; kids are notoriously difficult to cook for, and he thinks American parents are cautious about exposing their children to new flavors. While the judges go over the contestants standing after last week's food truck challenge, the contestants meet with product development team Hot Buttered Elves to start brainstorming their toys.
