CHICAGO BEARS RADIO -- WBBM Newsradio 780 "Traffic on the 8's"

A small chain of natural pet food stores is growing too quickly for its own good, according to Marc Lemonis, of CNBC’s The Profit. The flagship store opened in 2008, and is located at Sigwalt Street and Evergreen Avenue in Arlington Heights. In the business reality TV show The Profit, the star of the show (Lemonis) risks his own money by giving business owners a boost. In return, Lemonis gets a percentage of equity in the business.

The Profit wants to do business with good people on CNBC.

In the 2015 season premiere (aired Oct. 28) of “The Profit”, entrepreneur Marcus Lemonis takes a look at a pet food store that focuses on healthy food. Lemonis offers a $400,000 equity check for 25% of equity to Giovannis and Lisa Senafe, co-owners of Bentley’s Corner Barkery.

Lemonis also offers $1.3 million to fund the acquisition and the conversion of the location to be compliant with his successful retailing expertise.

In the reality TV show episode, Lemonis wants 40 percent ownership in the business for his investment in the business.

If the Senafe’s pay back the $1.3 million and interest, then Marcus Lemonis drops his ownership to 25 percent.

So in total, Lemonis is paying $1.7 million for 40% of the business.

Bentley’s Corner Barkery motto is to be product loyal and not brand loyal. Lemonis breaks down that thinking to be more open-minded and forgiving to pet food suppliers. Lemonis found some foods that were being overlooked by the Senafes.

Lemonis also changed warehousing operations and the IT operations. Lemonis also suddenly closed the flagship Arlington Heights store for remodeling. The new store re-opened as a brighter, graphic-enhanced store with better traffic flow toward profitable items, and improved merchandising.

The TV episode is being replayed tonight on CNBC (Comcast 63/266HD) from 9:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. CT. Viewers can also watch the show on CNBC’s website.
