Jovon English, along with her partners Marques Brooks and Naimah Harris, decided to put brownies and cookies together one day. Brookies were born, and so was their business, Milk + Brookies. These mashup treats offer many combinations and are so popular that the trio can’t keep up with orders, which are made in their own home kitchen. What will the sharks think of this sweet treat when it comes to the S
Shark Tank Milk + Brookies Update
- Entrepreneurs: Jovon English, Marques Brooks and Naimah Harris
- Business: Brownie-cookie hybrid treats in cupcake cups
- Ask: $100,000 for 20% equity
- Result: No deal
- Shark: None
After Jovon, Marques and Naimah delivered a short, sweet pitch for Milk + Brookies, they passed out samples of their most popular Brookie combinations. The sharks loved them, though they are a bit rich for Kevin O’Leary. The trio explained that they sold Brookies online, at fairs, and at special pop-up events. However, none of them were doing this full-time.
They had $14,000 in sales when they filmed the show. A six-pack sold for $14 – $17 depending on the variety, but cost less than a dollar to make. They needed the money to scale the business and start producing to fill all of their orders.
Kevin said they needed to charge more, and Mark Cuban agreed. He said they should charge $30 a dozen or $9.95 each. Mark didn’t think they were a business – instead, they seemed like a bake sale. He went out. Kevin followed immediately.
Robert Herjavec loved the Brookies, but it was too early for him to invest. He went out. Barbara Corcoran loved their personalities and the product but also thought they were too early. Lori Greiner agreed, too.
Unfortunately, Milk + Brookies walked away without a deal. Let’s find out how things went after the show, in our Milk + Brookies update.
Good news! Our Milk + Brookies update revealed that the company is still in business. Annual revenue is about $3 million, and you can find these iconic fusion treats in deli chains in New Orleans and New York.
You can also order them from the Milk + Brookies website, which offers 6 varieties, including oatmeal raisin, peanut butter, turtle, snickerdoodle, and sugar, alongside the OG flavor.
