Line Cutterz Shark Tank Updates - Line Cutterz: Shark Tank Updates in 2019

Vance Zahorski was fishing with some friends out on the beach while attending a wedding in 2014. He reeled in a shark that became entangled in the fishing line.

Key West Lime Pie Company The Profit Updates - Key West Lime Pie Company: The Profit Updates in 2019

Key lime pie is a delicious, tangy treat that has a unique flavor and a bright color that alludes to its distinctive, tart taste. Locals in the Florida Keys grow up eating the iconic, namesake dessert, made from the area’s signature limes. The Key West Key Lime Pie Company was started by Jim Brush and his girlfriend, Allison Sloat with only $1,200 as a roadside pie stand. They eventually became successful enough to open a brick and mortar store and earned the title of “Best Pie” by the American Pie Council. However, although they had been able to take in over a million dollars in sales, they were unable to turn a profit. Key West Key Lime Pie Company on…

Red Dress Boutique Shark Tank Updates - Red Dress Boutique: Shark Tank Updates in 2019

Diana and Josh Harbour had a vision of running a company together. A big part of the inspiration behind the idea was the fact that when she was growing up, Diana was the daughter of business owners.

Skullduggery The Profit Updates - Skullduggery Toy Company: The Profit Updates in 2019

The Skullduggery Toy Company was founded in 1987 by Peter Koehl Sr. in Anaheim, California. The business gets its unusual name from the first products the company stocked: museum-quality fossil replicas. When Peter Sr.’s two sons, Peter Jr. and Steven, joined the company, they expanded the product line to include craft kits, games, and toy cars. However, they selected toys and games based on what they thought were fun; they didn’t do any customer research or testing. When the brothers appeared on The Profit, they were losing money and were heavily in debt. Could Marcus Lemonis help save this family business?

RokBlok Shark Tank Update - RokBlok: Shark Tank Updates in 2019

Whether you call it a record or a “vinyl,” there’s no denying that these old-fashioned audio discs have made a massive comeback in recent years. Logan Riley, a former Creative Education Lead at Apple in San Francisco, designed a unique way to play records that offers portability and eliminates the need to purchase the components traditionally needed to play records: turntable, amplifier, and a pair of speakers. These components are not only expensive, but they take up a lot of space – a precious commodity for many young people living in urban areas (which would also likely make up Riley’s target audience). The device, called RokBlok, sits on top of a vinyl record and spins around the disc while the…

Diaper Dude The Profit Updates - Diaper Dude: The Profit Updates in 2019

As a father of three, Chris Pegula was fed up with the lack of masculine diaper bags. He knew there needed to be a less feminine bag that was a gender-neutral alternative to traditional diaper bags for dads (and utilitarian moms) to take charge of public diaper changes. He created Diaper Dude, a durable masculine diaper bag that dads would be more confident and feel more stylish wearing. Celebrities such as Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt began carrying a Diaper Dude diaper bag. Talk show hosts such as Oprah Winfrey and Ellen Degeneres featured the bags on their shows, and Diaper Dude grew to enormous popularity. Chris even authored two books, “From Dude to Dad: The Diaper Dude Guide to…

Kodiak Cakes Shark Tank Updates - Kodiak Cakes: Shark Tank Updates in 2019

It may have only been a few years ago that the founders of Kodiak Cakes walked into the Shark Tank to pitch their product, but the company has been building for quite some time. The cake mix is based on a family recipe, using all whole grains, unlike many competitors on the market. The Red Wagon has become an iconic image in the Kodiak family. This is because Penny Clark, the creator of the Kodiak Cakes mix, sent her 8-year-old son out in 1982 around the neighborhood to sell some of her mix to neighbors. He loaded up his red wagon full of bags of her mix and embarked on his sales mission. When he returned with an empty wagon,…

A Stein Meat Products Brooklyn Burger The Profit Updates - A. Stein Meat Products: The Profit Updates in 2019

A. Stein Meat Products co-owners, Howard Mora and Alan Buxbaum, had grown their inherited company from $4 million to $50 million over a period of eighteen years, but they were $3.5 million in debt to the bank and suffered huge losses every year. The Brooklyn-based duo blamed their woes on the cut-throat nature of the business, complaining that they had to drastically lower their margins in order to compete for their share of the national high-end restaurant and grocery market. But a laissez-faire approach to management and gross negligence were likely bigger factors in the company’s troubles. Could Marcus Lemonis help this struggling company make a profit? Marcus Visits A.
