COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — “The Profit” is back for season 5!

Visiting their main office, Lemonis is immediately concerned over the months-long backlog the company is experiencing. But he loves the craftsmanship and quality of the tiny homes.

He notices that the “nuances” are severely slowing down their production.
