Alexander Eburne was tired of making huge messes during kitchen prep, so he set out to keep cooking organized with his product, Prepdeck. This organization kit has places for ingredients, an integrated cutting board, and dozens of snap-on tools for an all-in-one experience.

After the pitch, the sharks stay relatively quiet about the product but are enthusiastic about Alexander’s sales.

At the time of Alexander’s appearance on Shark Tank, Prepdeck already had a few million dollars in sales. By the end of the filming year, he projected $10 million in sales.

When they ask how he plans to use the money, Alexander gives a neat, business-savvy answer that the sharks love.

However, Barbara Corcoran is the first to go out regardless. She’s particular about her cooking surfaces, and plastic just doesn’t cut it.

Kevin O’Leary, on the other hand, offers a $750,000 loan with 9.5% interest over 36 months for a 5% equity stake. He promises to brand the company with a Chef Wonderful endorsement, as the product fits right in his wheelhouse.

Kevin has already invested in some other cooking accessories from Shark Tank like Turbo Trusser and Banana Loca, and thinks Prepdeck would be a good fit.

To clear the deck, guest shark Daniel Lubetzky bows out. Mark Cuban follows Daniel, going out as well.

Both say that they just don’t understand the market well enough. Mark, however, does appreciate that Prepdeck includes a little shot glass.

Next, Lori Greiner leaves the deal as well. She simply can’t get excited about the low equity, especially considering the high asking cost.

This leaves Kevin and his offer at the table. Alexander counters for 9% interest and interest-only payments, as it’s a tight turnaround to recoup the funds.

He also tries to decrease the equity ask to 3%. However, Kevin wasn’t interested in taking it.

They haggle a bit but ultimately don’t reach an agreement, as Alex just can’t justify the risk. While Kevin says he respects Alex’s decision, Prepdeck walks away without a deal.

So, what happened to the company after their Shark Tank appearance? Find out in our Prepdeck update.

Since appearing on Shark Tank, Prepdeck has released a few more products that are available on its Amazon storefront. The company now offers a soup cube device, cooking utensils, and non-stick cooking sheet organizers.

Also, the more streamlined Prepdeck Gen 2 was recently released, as well. With so many new products, Prepdeck is well on the way to becoming a kitchen lifestyle brand.

According to Food Republic, Prepdeck achieved 500% growth in three years and has gone on to reach more than $18.5 million in lifetime sales.

Even though Alex found incredible success launching Prepdeck, it’s not the only project he’s focused on. According to LinkedIn, Alex is also the founder and CEO of TLNT, a business focusing on helping companies find top international talent.

You can purchase a prep board on the official Prepdeck website. We’re looking forward to seeing what the next Prepdeck update reveals.
