A new season of “Buy This Restaurant” kicks off on the Food Network tonight, and it stars a couple of Austinites looking to find a brick-and-mortar space for their nascent juice business. In the episode, Joanie Friedan and her husband, Cary, turn to the guidance of restaurant broker Keith Simpson for help in finding a location for their first juice bar, Skinny Limits.

Simpson will escort the couple around Austin, investigating several locations for their business, including a bar and restaurant on popular 6th street, a former music store and an abandoned Thai restaurant.

The episode, entitled “A New Juicy Business,” airs at 8 p.m. on the Food Network.
