Everyone seems to be opening a restaurant these days.

And many will flame out.

A new TV series is looking for people preparing to open their very first restaurant and who lack real restaurant experience.

Canadian consultant/chef David Adjey is behind The Opener, and he'll swoop in and assist beforehand.

His people are looking for openings planned within one to six months.

A few guidelines:

  • The restaurant cannot be a chain or franchise.
  • The restaurant must be full service (no delis, bakeries, takeout, etc.).
  • The restaurant must serve alcohol.
  • The restaurant must have at least 30 seats.
  • The owner wants/needs the help of a restaurant consultant
  • The owner is a great character and has other people helping him/her.
  • The owner must be willing to divulge the restaurant budget on camera.
  • The owner must be open to having a crew shoot in the restaurant for about 10 days.
