All of the company’s sales come directly from Whole Foods where they have their products in about 30 different locations. Mikaila and Theo were hoping to expand to more locations with a potential offer to enter Whole Foods in the Southwestern region of the United States. Each unit is costs $1.50 to manufacture, and retails for around $3.00.While the margins were decent, there was definitely some room for improvement. With larger purchase orders during the manufacturing process, the company believes they can get the costs of production down to below a dollar.
Kevin O’Leary was the first shark to drop out without making an offer. Robert Herjavec also dropped out, because he believed the industry was way too competitive. Mark Cuban dropped out because he didn’t believe that the company would be a profitable return on their investment. Lori Greiner went out next because she couldn’t drink the lemonade due to an allergy.
Daymond John was the last chance for Bee Sweet Lemonade to secure a deal and he decided to offer $60,000 for 25% equity.
