Shark Tank Earth-Log Update
- Entrepreneurs: Tom Sanetti
- Business: Fire log products
- Ask: $160,000 for 20% equity
- Result: $160,000 for 35% equity
- Sharks: Lori Greiner
Tom brought entered the tank, explaining why his fire logs were the best fire products on the market. His company Earth-Log, offers 3 kinds of logs; Original, Citronella and Instant Bon Fire. Tom was seeking help from the sharks to improve marketing and distribution.
Kevin O’Leary was immediately interested and even claimed to be Earth-Log’s ‘ideal’ customer, despite not even hearing of the brand before. Tom explained how his marketing woes in the past may be contributing to some of the lack of knowledge about his company. In the 4 years prior to filming, Tom had only generated $200,000 in sales, with $50,000 of that coming in the previous year.
Mark Cuban said he’d be a customer but the company was in too early of a stage to invest, so he went out. Guest shark Nick Woodman agreed with Mark and also decided to drop out. Daymond John and Kevin ultimately decided to drop out as well for similar reasons.
Last shark up was Lori Greiner and she loved everything about Tom’s company. She made an offer of $160,000 in exchange for 35% equity. Tom quickly accepted the deal. What became of his company after appearing on the show? Keep reading our Earth-Log update to find out!
