Shark Tank FairyTail Pet Care Update

- Business: Pet care for weddings
- Ask: $75,000 for 10% equity
- Result: $75,000 for 22% equity
- Shark: Barbara Corcoran
The founders of FairyTail Pet Care, Kelly and Illana, pitch their business with the help of some adorable dogs. Their wedding service takes care of every detail for your dog on your special day, so that they can be a part of your wedding, but you won’t have to worry about their care.
They handle all of the logistics, like round-trip transportation, attire rentals, walking the dog, and everything else that you could possibly come up with. They take care of it all. The goal is to remove the stress from a bride and groom who wants to involve their pet in their ceremony.
Their services come with a 3-hour minimum requirement, which starts at $600 for 1 dog. Then, each additional hour costs $100.
FairyTail Pet Care is headquartered in Tampa, Florida, however, 1 year prior to filming, they opened their first franchise. As far as that cost goes, it costs $12,500 to open a franchise, plus Kelly and Illana recoup 9% of gross sales.
Further, to date, they have 4 locations up and running. In terms of their own sales in the past year, they had $123,000 in sales, with a 70% margin in netted profits.
Additionally, they’ve netted about $80,000 from the franchises combined, in the past year.
We’ve partnered with six companies to put together a Shark Tank Stocking Stuffer Box that’s worth $100! Here’s everything that’s in the box:
- Sheets Laundry Club Travel Packs x2
- Honey Bee Bars - 12 Pack
- Snactiv Finger Chopsticks
- FryAway Cooking Oil Solidifier
- Pizza Pack
- Nature’s Wild Berry Sampler Pack
Kevin O’Leary chimes in, wanting to know how customers find them. The ladies say they do their advertising through social media and have a huge following on TikTok.
Robert Herjavec goes out. Although he loved having his dog at his own wedding, he doesn’t think the business is investable.
Likewise, Lori Greiner says the company isn’t big enough for her to get involved in. She likes to be able to grow business in a big way, and she doesn’t see it with this, so she is also out.
Mark Cuban loves the concept, but unfortunately for the ladies, he doesn’t see the business as being scalable. Furthermore, no matter how many weddings and franchises the company gets, he still doesn’t think it will be investible, so he is out next.
At this point, Ilana quickly points out that they are a mission-driven company. As a company, they make it a point to give back to help shelter animals.
Barbara Corcoran likes what she’s heard. She offers $75,000 for 25% equity of FairyTail Pet Care.
Then, Kevin offers $75,000 for 33.3% equity.
Kelly and Ilana decide to counter Barbara, and they ask her to drop her equity down to 15%, but she says no. Not ready to give up, they counter her again at 20%.
She says no, but she will do the deal for 22% equity, and the ladies accept. With that, they leave
