MIAMI, March 16, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Buddy Valastro, the star of Discovery Familia's hit series "Cake Boss," returns to the network in BAKERY BOSS, a new series that takes him around the country to visit failing bakeries. In each of the show's 13 episodes, the famous pastry chef and proprietor of the successful Carlo's Bakery, shares his business skills and baking expertise and helps bakery owners save their family businesses. BAKERY BOSS premieres March 30 at 10PM E/P and will air every Monday.
All across the United States, bakeries are struggling to stay open despite rising costs and fierce competition. Many of these business owners have talent, drive and passion to spare, but are lacking the customers and cash they need to succeed. Fortunately, Buddy has ample experience both in the kitchen and behind the counter, and he is willing to share that expertise to help other family-run bakeries. Together, they'll evaluate every ingredient, technique and product, even the place's decor, to fix the problem and make these bakeries the best in their cities.
Season one includes such cases as "Pastry Is Art," a Miami bakery owned by Jenny, a Peruvian immigrant. Jenny opened the businesses along with her sister, but unfortunately, work and family isn't always a good match, and lately the two women have been creating more drama than desserts. In another episode, Buddy comes to the rescue of Kristi, owner of "Kristi G's Cupcakes & More" in Dallas. A former business executive, Kristi quit her job to open her own bakery, but business hasn't been going so well. To make things worse, Kristi has serious problems with her employees – her husband, mother-in-law and daughter. In these and all of the cases featured, Buddy listens to the owner's problems, observes their operations, and advises the families on the best way to create their bakery of their dreams.
