Shark Tank Wake N’ Bacon Update

  • Entrepreneur: Matty Sallin
  • Business: Novelty alarm clock
  • Ask: $40,000 for 20% equity
  • Result: No deal
  • Shark: None

Matty introduces his product, the Wake n’ Bacon, on Shark Tank Season 2 Episode 2. His product basically combines an alarm clock, with the delicious smell of bacon.

While he was getting his Master’s degree at NYU, he took a course where he had to make an electronic device for the home. He decided he would remake the alarm clock, so he asked his fellow students how they preferred to wake up.

Most of those he asked said they liked to wake up to the smell and taste of bacon. So, he built the world’s first alarm clock that offers just that!

With the Wake n’ Bacon, the user places pre-cooked bacon in it before going to sleep. 1o minute before the alarm goes off, the bacon heats up, sending a delicious aroma throughout the room.

Matty states that the product went viral after he posted it on his website, and he received email after email requesting the product. 

Because of this, he needs an investment to get a functional mass-production prototype. He designed every detail, including the corkscrew design for the cable, and showed the new plans to the sharks.

He then plans to take the redesigned unit to investors, retail partners, and manufacturers. 

Kevin O’Leary and Mark Cuban find the idea hilarious, however, Kevin wonders if anyone will want a mini-oven next to their bed. Matty gives the sharks bacon samples from the Wake n’ Bacon to try to entice them into a deal.

Daymond John thinks the idea is fantastic. Kevin wants to know if Matty knows about pricing, and Matty says it will be around $13 per unit.

Robert Herjavec is interested in finding out where the money for the sales will come from. Matty states he doesn’t have a projection of how many units he will be able to sell, which leaves all the sharks unimpressed.

Kevin goes out due to safety concerns. He’s worried the alarm clock will catch on fire, and he’ll end up getting sued. 

Barbara Corcoran thinks the concept will make a great novelty gift, but that no one will actually want it cooking in their bedroom. Robert and Daymond ultimately agree, and follow out.  

Mark asks how much the minimum production cost will be, and Matty says $10,000 is the lowest he will go. Mark is interested in the product but thinks the ask is a problem.

Matty changes the ask to what Mark recommends, which is $175,000. Despite finding it appealing as a gag gift, Mark still goes out. 

In the end, Matty leaves without a deal, but what happened following Shark Tank? Keep reading our Wake n’ Bacon update to find out! 

Our Wake n’ Bacon update reveals that Matty did not manage to get the company off the ground and never came to fruition. There is no social media presence for Wake n’ Bacon, nor any mention of it on a website. 

This will be our final Wake n’ Bacon update.
