First Look: The owner of a packaged southern food business has bitten off more than she can chew

This owner gets defensive when she’s given constructive feedback

In 2012, Erica Barrett launched Southern Culture Artisan Foods, a package food business that focuses on southern cuisine and flavorful mixes. It started as a side hustle, but as the word spread about her delicious recipes, the business grew, and so did the debt.

About "The Profit"

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 one-hour episode of The Profit, 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.
