Shark Tank Himalayan Dog Chew Update
- Entrepreneurs: Suman Shrestha, Sujan Shrestha, and Nishes Shrestha
- Business: Dog chew treat using Himalayan ingredients
- Ask: $750,000 for 5% equity
- Result: No deal
- Sharks: None
Suman, Sujan and Nishes brought their all natural dog treats to the tank and passed out samples. Authentic cheese eaten by the people of the Himalayans, yak and cow milk, lime juice and salt, are the only ingredients in their Himalayan Dog Chew. Some of the sharks even gave them a taste when the brothers assured them they were safe for humans.
ANCIENT HIMALAYAN RECIPE from the mountains of Nepal - Each Himalayan dog chew is expertly hand crafted by artisans using ancient techniques passed down through families for hundreds of years. JUST CHEESE - Milk sourced from the best yaks and Cows. Ingredients are natural with no binding agents, preservatives or additives. The curing process removes lactose and yak chews are Gluten free and Grain Free.
The brothers shared that they had brought in $5.6 million in gross revenue sales during the most recent calendar year, which impressed the sharks. Mark Cuban believed that the company didn’t need any of the sharks, so he dropped out. Lori Greiner also dropped out because she didn’t get the product or their sales.
Kevin O’Leary decided to make an offer of $750,000 as a loan in exchange for 5% equity. The loan terms included a 10% interest rate over the course of 36 months. Robert Herjavec was also interested in making an offer but ultimately decided to partner up with Kevin to make a two-shark offer to Himalayan Dog Chew. The brothers momentarily stepped out of the tank to discuss the offer, and when they returned, Lori had decided to join the deal. The new offer from Kevin, Robert and Lori was $750,000 for 15% equity, with the same loan terms as before.
This offer was rejected by the brothers as they didn’t want to take on any debt. They countered the sharks at $750,000 for 10% equity. This was rejected, so they countered again with 1.5 million for 20%. Lori and Kevin didn’t like the counter, so they dropped out. Robert offered a deal with just him, at $750,000 for 15% and again, the brothers rejected the offer, so Robert dropped out.
With no deal, the brothers were forced to leave the tank empty handed. So, what became of their company? Keep reading our Himalayan Dog Chew update to find out!
