With a confident grin, she proudly informed the ferocious sharks that Grill Charms had infiltrated over 100 unique retail havens across the globe. Despite being a newborn in the business realm, the company had miraculously amassed a staggering $60,000 in gross sales. Each alluring set of these charms could be acquired for a mere $19.99.
Captivated by the opportunity, Kevin O’Leary eagerly extended his fin as the inaugural shark, proposing a tantalizing deal of $50,000 in return for a generous 50% stake in the venture, accompanied by a delightful 7% royalty. Following suit, Kevin Harrington mirrored the offer, sans the enchanting royalty component.
Robert Herjavec offered to come in and split the equity with Kevin Harrington, putting up $30,000 of the $50,000 that Kevin offered.
Daymond John enthusiastically teamed up with Kevin Harrington, forcing Robert to step back from the negotiation. In order to make space for new opportunities, Barbara Corcoran gracefully opted out, as Leslie had an abundance of enticing offers to carefully evaluate.
Determined not to be outdone, Robert swiftly altered his proposition to $50,000, in exchange for a 25% stake in the business, prompting Kevin O’Leary to respond with a revised offer of his own. O’Leary’s fresh proposal stood at $50,000 for a 20% ownership share, coupled with a 7% royalty agreement.
In the end, Leslie accepted Robert’s offer! What happened next for her company? Keep reading our Grill Charms update to find out!
