THE PROFIT: NEW EPISODE: “Queork”– Airs Tuesday, December 11 at 10PM ET/PT
A New Orleans based manufacturer and retailer with a unique product experienced early success and expanded to 4 locations. But the owner’s poor communication and reckless spending is putting her business at risk. If Marcus can’t teach her how to put a cork in her mounting debt, this business may just crumble.

Ben’s Garden – Brooklyn, NY

Using his famous “3 P’s” principle – People, Process, Product – Marcus digs deep into every aspect of the business and carefully evaluates each employee. Whether the problem is poor leadership or financial mismanagement, it doesn’t take long for him to figure out what the company is doing wrong and establish a plan for success. And that plan will work… as long as everyone is on board.
When Marcus Lemonis isn’t running his multi-billion dollar company, Camping World, he goes on the hunt for struggling businesses that are desperate for cash and ripe for a deal. In each episode, Lemonis makes an offer that’s impossible to refuse; his cash for a piece of the business and a percentage of the profits. And once inside these companies, he’ll do almost anything to save the business and make himself a profit; even if it means firing the president, promoting the secretary or doing the work himself.
