Be the Boss Canada comes to the Langley area, with the localized episode of the television show airing tonight.
The Corus Entertainmentâ€™s show pits two employees from The Bone & Biscuit Co. against each other to win a huge promotion â€“ all they have to do is complete a series of challenges.
One of those competitors is Jen Pinch from the Cloverdale store, and sheâ€™s going head to head with Ashley Beaumont, from The Bone & Biscuit store in Kamloops.
From making tasty dog-friendly muffins to educating complete strangers about the benefits of natural food for pets, Pinch and Beaumont are vying for a life-changing job opportunity â€“ theyâ€™ll get to be a boss at their own store.
â€œYouâ€™re not just trying to do something better than your competitor, but youâ€™re also performing in front of an audience in many cases,â€ Pinch said before the episode aired.
â€œDuring one demonstration, I ended up covering from head-to-toe in slime with 50 people watching. All I could say is â€˜so much for those new shoesâ€™.â€
Be the Boss Canada â€“ now in its second season â€“ is produced from the award-winning production team behind Undercover Boss Canada.
As way of backgroud, The Bone & Biscuit Co. is known for its focus on high-end, holistic, and organic pet foods.
Company CEO Lee Drescher is proud of the two employees who stepped up for this on-air challenge.
â€œNot only did they have to complete difficult challenges, but they also had the added element of working with four-legged friends who sometimes donâ€™t cooperate,â€ Drescher said.
â€œAt the end of the day it isnâ€™t about who wins or not, but about how devoted they are to our company and our mission. Itâ€™s really inspiring to watch,â€ said the CEO.
To find out how Pinch does in the competition, people can watch the results tonight. Her episode airs at 8 p.m. Thursday, April 10 on W Network.
