His product isn’t only for Muslims though. It also appeals to vegans and health-conscious snackers.

Snacklins are made with three ingredients—yuca, mushroom, and onions. They’re 80 calories a bag, a fact that instantly attracts the sharks.

Eventually, the numbers get them even more interested in the brand. Samy makes Snacklins in his own factory and has perfected his production method.

His product is already in over 850 stores nationwide. From mom and pop shops, to Whole Foods, Walmart, and 7 Eleven, he’s been able to cover a good amount of the market.

In the year prior, he did $200,000 in sales. Further, in the year of filming, his estimated revenue will be around $2 million.

Each bag retails for between $1.99-$2.29, and costs around $0.90 to manufacture. This means his margins are less than desirable.

Despite the great product, and sales, Barbara Corcoran is immediately out. The risks associated with making a food product and the astronomical costs to keep the product in stores, are too much for her.

Lori Greiner doesn’t agree with the high valuation, and thinks that Snacklins may be too risky. For these reasons, she is also out.

Guest shark Rohan Oza, doesn’t think that Samy should be doing his own manufacturing. He says it’s not viable to not outsource it, so he’s out too.

However, Mark Cuban is on board. He agrees that Samy doing his own manufacturing is the right way to go.

On the other hand, he doesn’t really think the small equity amount Samy is offering would be worth his time. After some debate, he finally offers the $250,000 that Samy asked for, but for 5% equity, plus 5% in advisory shares.
