Good Grief Celebrations Funeral Concierge Update | Shark Tank Season 1

When Rikki Farrar’s mom passed away, she decided to honor her with a “Celebration of Life” instead of a traditional funeral.

Shark Tank Good Grief Celebrations Update

Good Grief Celebrations Update

  • Entrepreneurs: Rikki Farrar
  • Business: Funeral concierge service
  • Ask: $50,000 for 25% equity
  • Result: No deal
  • Sharks: None

Rikki presented her funeral concierge service, Good Grief Celebrations to the sharks during Shark Tank Season 1. She explained that she offers eulogy writing, funeral service officiating, and handles the closed family gathering details.

In the year prior to filming, Rikki only had $11,000 in sales, which was concerning to several of the sharks. Robert Herjavec believed that Rikki was taking advantage of people and their families, so he didn’t want to do business with this particular entrepreneur.

Barbara Corcoran said it was all too creepy for her, so she dropped out next. Daymond John went out next, due to Rikki’s low sales. Kevin Harrington said this wasn’t the type of business he wanted to invest in, so he too went out.

Last but not least, Kevin O’Leary dropped out because the company wasn’t successful enough yet.

With no offers from the sharks, Rikki was forced to leave Shark Tank Season 1 without a deal. What happened next for her business? Keep reading our Good Grief Celebrations update to find out!

We have sad news to report in our Good Grief Celebrations update. Apparently the company was abandoned shortly after appearing on Shark Tank.

It seems likely that Rikki took some of the feedback that she received from the sharks and moved on to the next chapter of her life. This will be our final Good Grief Celebrations update.
