Food Court Wars comes to Newark
Submitted By Laurie Gebhard
The Food Network is coming to Newark to film Food Court Wars where two teams of aspiring food entrepreneurs compete against one another as they battle to win their own food court restaurant, rent-free for a year.
Each week, Food Court Wars visits a different U.S. city mall and this time, theyÕve chosen the food court at the NewPark Mall in Newark. 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 Ð a prize worth $100,000 and the losing team must vacate the premises.
Contestants will be at the George M. Silliman Activity and Family Aquatic Center on Wednesday, February 26. Stop by between the hours of 5:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. if you would like to meet the contestants and sample their food.
Contestants will then be at the food court in the NewPark Mall shopping center at 5 p.m. on Thursday, February 27 for more food sampling and judging Email: FCWNEWARK@gmail.com to be a part of the action.
The City of Newark welcomes the Food Network!
