Wondry Update | Shark Tank Season 14

Wondry appeared on Shark Tank during Season 14, seeking an investment of $185,000 for 8% equity. The sharks were interested in learning more about their cocktail wines, so they let the couple present their business idea and talk about the financial history of their business. Not to worry though, we still plan on giving you the full Wondry update as soon as we recap these important facts.

Shark Tank Wondry Update

Wondry Update

  • Entrepreneurs: Chaz Gates and Whitney Gates
  • Business: Cocktail Wines
  • Ask: $185,000 for 8% equity
  • Result:  $225,000 for 15% equity
  • Sharks: Mark Cuban

With a variety of different cocktail wines already developed and selling on the market, the sharks wanted to hear about financial details relating to Wondry’s business. 

Kevin O’Leary considers himself an expert in wine, but he wanted to know what price point Wondry was selling their beverages at. They responded by telling him that they are currently selling wine at $18.99 through retail and direct-to-consumer methods. 

A single bottle costs just under $4 per bottle, while retail stores buy the bottles from Wondry at just under $14 per bottle. These margins were reasonable, but not exceptional.

The sharks were fairly pleased with what they were hearing, especially since the business had only been operating for just under twelve months. The company expects to net a profit of $60,000 on more than $250,000 in sales from the past year. That puts the company’s net profit margin at approximately 25% overall.

Mark Cuban decided to make an offer of $225,000 in exchange for 15% equity. Chaz and Whitney Gates quickly accepted his offer and became his partner. Now that we know about the preliminary deal between Mark Cuban and Wondry, let’s jump ahead to look to the future.

Our Wondry update is still fresh, but we do know for sure that the company has received a major boost in sales since appearing on the show. Further, the deal with Mark Cuban will certainly benefit the company as it grows.

The company’s high-quality cocktail wines are continuously being sold on its website. We can’t wait to share our next Wondry update.
