'Be the Boss' Lets Employees Compete for a Franchise

A&E has a new reality show called "Be the Boss" from the producers of CBS' "Undercover Boss" that pits participants against each other to own a role at a franchise. Participating companies include Jazzercise, Complete Nutrition, Auntie Anne's, The Melting Pot and Molly Maid.

The show features two lower-level franchise employees per episode. They believe they're competing for a promotion and complete challenges centered on various aspects of franchise management. The winner becomes a franchise owner, while the runner-up gets the aforementioned promotion. In that sense, there are no "losers" like on other competition-style reality shows.

Molly Maid, which has 250 franchisees, will appear on the December 23 episode. CEO Meg Roberts revealed to Entrepreneur that their winner's grand prize is worth nearly $100,000. "The contestant receiving the promotion will remain in her job while also traveling a few times a year as a Molly Maid field-training executive, and her salary will be three times larger," wrote Dinah Wisenberg Brin in her Entrepreneur write-up of the show.

Do you plan on tuning in to "Be the Boss" when it premieres on Sunday?
