The company takes advantage of a recurring subscription model which costs $25.00 on a bi-weekly basis and the product is delivered to their homes.
PET-TRAINING MADE EASY: Fresh sod mat helps dogs learn faster not to urinate and poop inside.
CONVENIENT: Great potty option for indoor or older dogs; perfect for an apartment, balcony or porch.
Now that it was time to talk about the company’s sales, Andrew quickly impressed the sharks by telling them that his company had more than $1 million in lifetime gross revenue sales. All of the company’s sales had come from online platforms, which the sharks also loved to hear. One shark was not interested in investing and that was Robert Herjavec. He didn’t feel like his own dog would like the patch so he went out.
Kevin O’Leary was interested though, and he offered Andrew $150,000 in exchange for 33.3% equity. Barbara Corcoran also decided to make an offer. Here’s was $150,000 for 20% equity, contingent on getting his product into retail stores. In hopes of swaying Andrew to make a deal, Kevin lowered his equity ask down to 20%.
