Shark Tank Lulu Bang Update

The enterprising sisters started their pitch to lớn the sharks on the right lưu ý by giving the sharks a taste test. Quickly after giving out the samples khổng lồ all the sharks, they couldn’t get enough of it. However, despite a successful taste test, as the Beard sisters talked more about how their business worked, the sharks quickly noticed a few areas of concern.

Kevin O’Leary, for example, pointed out that the business did not have an effective distribution technology. Although the sauce had $45,000 worth of sales và was in 170 Walmart stores, the sharks were ultimately unimpressed with the low sales numbers. Many of them agreed that it would be too difficult to sell the sauces online as well.

So, despite loving the sauce, both Kevin và Daymond John were the first to lớn go out. Robert Herjavec soon followed suit, saying that he found the packaging quite confusing. Meanwhile, Lori Greiner didn’t think that the product was chất lượng enough, so she backed out followed by Mark Cuban.

With no khuyến mãi secured, you’d think that our Lulu Bang update would be short, but you’d be wrong. Despite failing khổng lồ secure a giảm giá on Shark Tank, the Beard sisters are doing relatively well for themselves. As a matter of fact, just 72 hours after Lulu Bang appeared on Shark Tank in 2016, the company sold $60,000 worth of product & the orders have kept rolling in since.

In January 2017, the Beard sisters started a pop-up restaurant named Lulu Bang Burgers & Wangs at the Common Table in Philadelphia with signature dishes themed around the four sauces. However, as it turns out, the restaurant has since closed down.

But, Lulu Bang is still very much operational with their sauce manufacturing and select catering. Their sauces are still available in more than 100 Walmart locations, a handful of ShopRite stores, & the Lulu Bang website.
