SCORE and Spike TV Team Up for Bar Rescue SUNDAYS 10/9c on SPIKE!

SCORE (, mentors to America’s small business, a non-profit association and premier resource for free and confidential small business advice, is pleased to announce a partnership with SPIKE TV in support of a new series aiming to give failing nightlife establishments a chance at success.

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, 4.7 million or 21% of all small businesses started in 2008 were restaurants and bars. This new television show entitled Bar Rescue, premiering Sunday, July 17th at 10/9c, features one bar per week struggling to succeed. SCORE joins in this effort to provide anyone with an interest in starting, saving or growing a restaurant or bar free and confidential business advice.

With the helpful and experienced advice from Jon Taffer, a virtual fixture in the restaurant, bar and nightclub business, these restaurants will work to turn their struggling business into a successful operation. Taffer is an internationally recognized, award-winning restaurant operator, owner and concept developer.
