Simply Good Salad Jars Update

  • Entrepreneur: Jared Cannon
  • Business: Salads in a jar
  • Ask: $500,000 for 7% equity
  • Result: $500,000 for 10% equity
  • Shark: Mark Cuban and Lori Greiner

Featured on Shark Tank Season 12 Episode 16, Simply Good Jars is a salad in a jar, designed for those who like to eat on the go. Founded by chef Jared Cannon, he has created a variety of flavorful, and fresh jarred salads.

Even better, if you return the jar, Simply Good Jars will donate a meal to someone in need. They also reuse the returned jars, which is great for the environment.

Prior to the COVID-19  pandemic, Jared sold his product in airports, hotels, colleges, and other places with high foot traffic via vending machines.

However, because most of these places closed during the pandemic, Jared had to get creative.

This led him to a partnership with Cloud Kitchens, where he could list his product on meal delivery sites. He has also managed to get the salads into a variety of grocery and convenience stores.

When discussing cost, Jared shared that it costs around $2.50-$3.50 to make a salad jar, and they sell between $9-$11. Additionally, he sells them wholesale for between $5-$6.

When Daymond John asked Jared about sales, he shared that he had done just shy of $300,000 in sales in 2019, and at the time of filming in 2020, he was already at $475,000 YTD.

Further, Simply Good Jars is on track to do $750,000 by the end of the year.

Daymond went on to ask how much Jared would make off those sales, and he said he would not earn a profit yet. In fact, he is actually losing around $900,000 a year.

Despite this, Jared is confident that they’ll eventually turn the corner, and will be highly profitable. He’s even raised over $2.5 million to help turn things around.

Kevin O’Leary is the first shark to show interest. He offered Jared $500,000 as a loan at 9.5% interest and 7% equity.

After the offer, Robert Herjavec drops out over concerns that the company will continue to lose money, and Daymond follows out for the same reason.

Lori Greiner is next, and she teams up with Kevin on the same deal he originally offered. Then, Mark matches Kevin and Lori’s offer but drops the interest to 3%.

While discussing all of this, Mark changes his offer to $500,000 for 10% equity, and Lori joins him in the deal, leaving Kevin in the dust. Jared agrees, and the deal is done.

Does Jared turn things around after teaming up with two sharks? Keep reading our Simply Good Jars update to find out!

In terms of a Simply Good Jars update after Shark Tank, the company is still in business and has an estimated annual revenue of over $4 million! Further, Jared has partnered with GoPuff so that the jars can be delivered locally by a driver.

In 2022, the company opened a packaging facility in Florida, to help expand production. Jared is also working on a patent to protect his unique packaging style.

In addition to Simply Good Jars’s line of salads, in early 2023, they launched a new product called All Day Parfaits. These sweet treats feature 3 flavor combos; Apple Crumble, Chocolate Peanut Butter, and Lemon Mango.
