Foreign All sharks are still in but they're Concerned about the low sales of Kelly And Jerry's sauce company lulubang Despite being in numerous locations I Don't think this is going to work You need a lot more than 150 000 to Break into the big things

You know it looks very Asian to me right I'm and then I see barbecue sauce and Yet you told me it's good for everything Right I think you've come a really Really long way you've bagged a massive Elephant in terms of Walmart you've got A great test you know The Branding will Probably have to change a little bit But it almost feels to me like it's at The beginning Amazing job but I just don't think I'm The partner at this point for you okay Well thank you thank you very much when I look at you it reminds me of a saying Some women fear the fire some women Become it you have become it and you Have done an amazing job and you have an Amazing partner in Walmart for me when I Invest in something I like to invest in Things that are unique but there are a Million barbecue sauces out there and For that reason I'm out Because you deserve a ton of credit my Challenge is I need to see a company That's going to do 10 million dollars in Sales or 50 million dollars in sales Over the next 10 years even five years But we're definitely that company Mark I Know you want to be I know you want I Believe that we are and here's why Because we've had conversations with Walmart and with ShopRite and all of Those guys the expansion piece of it We've got that nail you know it will

Happen It's just not going to happen in the Next two or three years even if you get Out to a thousand stores selling you Know seven a week your business will Grow and it'll be a great profitable Business for you but that doesn't Necessarily mean it's an investable Business for me So for those Reasons I'm out but again Congratulations thank you you guys Deserve just a ton of credit good luck Ladies good luck guys thank you All what I do not feel like it was a Wasted effort I would do it all again we Know that it's going to be the sauce in Every single household it's not a matter Of if but when the chances of that Actually being successful even with the Walmart oh no Walmart will get behind Did you know everything when you started Your first business I'm looking at it Saying no chance it's a total commodity Kevin what you're missing what you're Missing you're not missing anything I Noticed you wouldn't put a dime into it The issue is scale it's not whether or Not they'll be profitable because they Can sell it they can hire more people to Sell it it's just how much my whole Point about these dialogues we're having With these people with all this glowing Encouragement is you're not giving the Real risk profile of what they're

Spending their time okay Kevin let's Talk about the recruit let's talk about This the truth Kevin you're an idiot let Me tell you goodness I'm here mark thank Goodness so Kevin Kevin can you think Maybe it's glowing stuff that means the Three of them spend the next two years Trying to sell a hot sauce listen to me Kevin Should really assess whether or not it's Worth the next two years to try and take Seven stories What are we supposed to do You know I like to see a little bit Because you're never gonna get anywhere How about telling them the truth It's never going to go anywhere you're Not going to get it any stores nobody Needs this product if I had listened to Any of them if I tried to find the Hardest to go into to get Market sharing I think it would be the barbecue I Remember the guy there is no such thing As an easy Businesses that are born in hell and This is one of them I would rather work 80 hours a week to make 50k and work for Myself than have a 7 500 000 job working For somebody else If you guys loved it so much how come Not a dime from any of you it's her Business But I told them the truth I didn't have To give them an excuse shame on you

So it's between one and five just tell Us what it is you want an investment you Can't not tell us Yes but I think that's a good range so It gives you a good idea no it doesn't No but why won't you give us the actual Number

Actually not sharing the exact user Number right now okay I'm out Well you gotta share that are you Kidding okay what were your sales so Last year we made eighty seven thousand Dollars but get this this year in the First five months we made 270 000 wow so It's growing very quickly forecast for This calendar year all in at this Current rate we will make a million and Next year we aim to make 10 million Dollars All right the million dollars in sales What will you make what's your profit so Right now our profit is negative because We had to spend a lot of money mostly on Salaries to pay our developers and do You guys take a salary today right now We take hundred thousand dollar salary Each year sorry you take a hundred so Three hundred thousand dollars you're Drawing out of the business right a year A year a year but that is still a Significant pay cut for all of us Whatever we're making prior We actually raised 2.8 million dollars In external funding so far wow our Notable investor actually is of one of The co-founders of match.com who Absolutely love their idea and he was Our very first investor on the million Dollars how much will you lose this year We'll lose a million dollars

You'll lose a million dollars on a Million dollars in sales yes which is Why we actually have to raise more money Because we're trying to ramp up our Growth you're projecting 10 million Dollars for the second year exactly how Much money will you make on that 10 Million we will break even on 10 million You'll break even let her go let it go And here's why we plan to bring on about 4 million users next year who's going to Generate about 2.50 each hence the 10 Million what's your customer acquisition Cost 30 cents next year we plan on Spending about three to four million Dollars on marketing spending and Acquire 4 million users so we are Assuming a slight increase in customer Acquisition costs you know you're an All Or Nothing play What do you think for all or nothing Because you're losing so much money You're not really into building a Business game you're in the raising Money and getting users game I think You've got to hit a home run not saying You're not going to but it's risky I know It is our decision to invest more now so We can accelerate growth but we can just As well just grow this business as a Fascinating dilemma because I hear where You're coming from the Baseline model Works you want to pour gasoline on that

Fire exactly it's a pretty big bet and And while I'm doing it I part with five Hundred thousand dollars and I get five Percent one of the problems for me now In Shark Tank in season six is I've come To realize I'm really valuable big time And it's made me very greedy I don't do Five percent deals that's worthless to Me I wouldn't do this I'm out If we really thought this was all or Nothing we would have raised a lot more Money from the beginning now we actually Have a choice of just growing the Business traditionally or raise more Money to make this big you've raised a Lot of money you're not making money and You're each drawing a hundred thousand Dollars it's three hundred thousand Dollars out of the business that seems Very high salary I mean most people Don't make anywhere near that and you're Just growing big concern I have also is The fact that somebody else could do This People are knocking off everybody on the Internet all the time so for that reason I'm out I think one thing for sure is you're Great at raising money thank you I also Think this is a site that's needed I Think the women I know that have been on The typical website feel like a piece of Meat and a meat locker I looked over

They don't you know it's almost Insulting yes this is a site that gives Women a little bit more control and I Like all of that but I'll tell you what I don't like the break even at 10 Million a break even and I'm only only Five percent of the stock that's spooky Doesn't seem like enough upside for the Enormous risk I'd be taking so for those Reasons I'm out Thank you Let me ask you a question if I offered You 30 million dollars for the company Would you take it [Music] All five sharks are out but Mark Cuban Has just made the largest offer in Shark Tank history let me ask you a question If I offered you 30 million dollars for The company would you take it [Music] Thank you no I would not be taking it because we see We see this business going growing as Big as Match.com and you know how much Revenue they're generating 800 million a Year they're becoming a billion dollar Revenue company and we think this model And the product has potential to be as Big as match he offered you 30 million Dollars and you didn't even Flinch she Should feel confident it's a newer Ephemeral version of Hot or Not which is Brilliant but I don't know how

Protectable that is well I give you Total credit and I think you guys have Done some brilliant things I don't think The risk reward is there for me and for Those Reasons I'm still out Good luck thank you excellent Presentation What they say like in dating never Settled while 30 million dollars may Sound like a lot of money you ain't Mr Mark Cuban because this baby is going to Explode Wait you're not subscribed to the Shark Tank Youtube channel well then for that Reason I'm out
