Quevos chips appeared on Shark Tank Season 12 Episode 11 and was pitched by 22-year-old founders Nick and Zack. The chips were designed to be a healthier option than regular potato chips, and are made from egg whites.Amazon product
They are high in protein and low in carbs, and in turn, are more filling than most other chips on the market.
Initially funded through a KickStarter in 2018, things have gone well for Nick and Zack and they managed to earn $260,000 in sales in 2019.
Further, at the time of the Quevos
In addition to this great success, Nick and Zack have been able to lower manufacturing costs enough to have solid margins per bag.
It currently costs $0.83 to make a bag, leaving them with a $2.49 profit margin per bag. They also shared that they are currently making the bags themselves due to high quotes from co-packers.
All of this was enough to interest Kevin O’Leary and guest shark and KIND Bar founder, Daniel Lubetzky.
Kevin offered $200,000 for 2.5% equity along with a $0.10 royalty until $400,000 is paid back.
Daniel took a different approach and offered $200,000 for 10% equity and $200,000 as a line of credit.
Lori Greiner shared that she is already a customer and thinks Daniel gave them a great offer, so she dropped out.
Mark Cuban liked the idea but shared that he just wasn’t sold and decided to drop out.
After thinking it through and some failed counters, Nick and Zack decided to accept Daniel’s deal!
Do the guys manage to grow their success now that they have a shark on their side? Keep reading our Quevos update to find out!
