Muskego native Jesa Henneberry is among the chefs competing on Food Network’s new “Big Restaurant Bet” for a $ 250,000 investment in a first restaurant.

Hosted by Geoffrey Zakarian, “Big Restaurant Bet” brought competitors together in Florida for this new series of six one-hour episodes, which premiered April 5 on Food Network with streaming weekly on Discovery +. The competitors take on a series of challenges, trying to secure the $ 250,000 contract with Zakarian’s company to open their own restaurant.

Henneberry graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology and spent a decade working in the fashion industry. That eventually amped up her interest in fitness and health, and she attended the Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts in New York City. She became a private chef and restaurant consultant, with a particular focus on sports nutrition, including vegan, paleo and allergen-free menus.
