Another Shark Tank Pitch

Who Is The Founder Of Brass Roots?

Aaron Gailmor is the founder and CEO of this snacks company. Aaron started this company in 2019 when he was looking for a Natural Foods because of his father’s heart attack problem.

After studying finance and economics at the Boston College Carroll School of Management, he started the SuperEats company in 2013 in New York. However, this company closed in February 2020. He worked for 14 years in various positions at Citibank.

Brass Roots Before Shark Tank

After this snacks company was launched by Aaron in 2019, Aaron took the support of social media to promote the product.

According to bizneworleans, Aaron targeted people with peanut allergies on Facebook, giving them free packets and offering promo codes for their next orders. This is a very good strategy that will attract people towards a new product.

In January 2021, John B. Sanfilippo & Son Inc. invested $ 1 million in the Series A round in this company. As of January 2023, snack products from this brand are available at 400 Sprouts Farmers Market stores across the United States.

They have partnered with local youth organizations Roots of Music, Covenant House Nola, and Youth Run Nola.

How Was The Shark Tank Pitch Of Brass Roots?

Aaron entered Shark Tank with a music band and asked the sharks for $400k for 7% equity. He told about the Sacha Inchi Seed, and how he uses this seed to make a product.

Kevin asked the founder about the company’s sales. They did $35,000 in sales in 2019, $250,000 in 2020, $500,000 in 2021, and expect $1.5 million in 2022. but, not profitable yet.

Every month they are burning $20K to $30K in cash. They currently have $100k in cash in the bank. Their lightly salted snack cost $4.50 to make, landed $5, and sold for $17.99.

Daymond said it was expensive. So far they have raised $1.7 million and their recent valuation was $5 million. Currently “Aaron” is the 33% owner of the company.

After this Kevin O’Leary got out. Mark Cuban said that the margin in this is very less then he’s out. Daymond John said that he would become a customer of this brand but he is out.

Lori Greiner Says Most People Don’t Know About The Sacha Inchi Seed And She Doesn’t Know How To Recognize It So She’s Out. Daniel Lubetzky said he doesn’t think this business is investable at this moment so he’s out.

Finalize: Brass Roots didn’t get the deal in Shark Tank.
