'Supermarket Superstar' With Host Stacy Keibler to Debut July 22 on Lifetime
Celebrity Chef, Vintner and Specialty Foods Pioneer Michael Chiarello and America’s Cookie Queen Debbi Fields with Branding Expert Chris Cornyn Serve as Mentors for Aspiring Home Chefs Competing to Win Product Placement on Supermarket Shelves Nationwide
LOS ANGELES, CA – Do you have what it takes to be the next Mrs. Fields, Orville Redenbacher or Chef Boyardee? Then you may be a Supermarket Superstar, Lifetime’s all-new competition series that will give every day Americans the chance to prove they have the next great product consumers will love.
Premiering Monday, July 22, at 10 ET/PT and hosted by Stacy Keibler, Supermarket Superstar gives undiscovered food entrepreneurs their chance to shine among the big brands in the highly competitive food industry. Almost anyone can cook a great meal, but this is the first food competition show that provides a platform for individuals that can change the way millions of Americans shop and eat.
Each one-hour episode of Supermarket Superstar follows three home chefs as they pitch their product concepts to titans of the food world for the opportunity to have their creation launched nationally in a major grocery chain. Chef, vintner, TV host and specialty foods pioneer Michael Chiarello; cookie mogul Debbi Fields of Mrs. Fields Cookies; and branding expert and food product visionary Chris Cornyn serve as the series’ mentors to share their expertise with the contestants as they prepare their products for mass production. With the help of Chef Chiarello and research and development chef Andrew Hunter, the hopefuls must refine and perfect their recipes to impress targeted focus groups of real-life consumers to make it to the checkout line.
The surviving contestants must then create professional packaging to present their product to Tom Dahlen, the supermarket buyer for The Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Company (A&P), who will determine the winner of each episode. The last cook standing will be rewarded $10,000 in prize money and $100,000 worth of product development from DINE Marketing and Mattson (the largest independent food and beverage innovation company in the country) to create professional samples of their products. For the Supermarket Superstar finale, three winners from the season will be invited back to compete for the grand prize by presenting their product to A&P CEO Sam Martin, with the hope their dream will be realized when their product is launched in A&P supermarkets and their affiliated chains nationwide.
