Chill Soda Shark Tank Update (Season 1)

The company Chill Soda, whose founder and CEO is Dan Mackey, appeared on Shark Tank Season 1 Episode 9 and asked the Sharks for $50,000 for 10% equity. Mackey found Healthy Juices and Sports Drinks that were low in calories and did not use any toxic ingredients, but he found no such beverages.

He saw a gap in the market and started Chill Soda Company to fill it. He wanted to expand his beverages business nationwide so he decided to take help from sharks. After the completion of negotiations regarding equity, Barbara Corcoran invested $50,000 in this company for 20% equity.

Unfortunately, this business could not be sustained for long, and by 2020 the company went out of business.
