Married couple and business partners Aida and Phillip entered
The sharks started being a little miffed when discussing the fertilizer, but they can see why the concept is environmentally-friendly.
Kevin Harrington asked about sales, and the sharks were shocked to learn the couple had only earned $4,000 as of the time of filming.
Kevin O’Leary questioned the valuation based on these sales. Phillip told him that they streamlined the business to have the lowest overhead possible.
Daymond John asked if they had a patent and if that was possible. Aida said they had a provisional patent on the unique liquefying process.
Robert Herjavec pointed out that it would cost a lot of money to market and educate the people. Daymond went out because of this potential cost.
Kevin O. said he would be interested in adding manure to his portfolio, but he couldn’t invest based on the sales figures, so he went out.
Kevin H. also went out because of the numbers. Barbara Corcoran said the numbers didn’t add up, and followed out.
Robert asked how much a llama cost and Aida said between $5,000 to $20,000. Robert said he would have been interested in buying one for his kids, but not investing so he too went out.
Aida and Phillip had to leave
Our Llama Brew update shows that the road wasn’t easy for Aida and Phillip. They had to relocate to Oregon, where the product turned out extremely profitable for local growers.
The company is still in business and has an estimated annual revenue of $1 million. You can check out their products on the Llama Brew website.
We are so happy to report a positive Llama Brew update so many years later.
