COLOARDO SPRINGS - A local chef landed a deal with one of the sharks on ABC’s Shark Tank, so we caught up with him after he returned home with the exciting news.
Tyler Peoples pitched his invention, "The Scooping Bowl", which is a five-quart mixing bowl with a built in rubber console spatula.
It's designed to scrape every last ingredient out of the bowl. This kind of equipment is a big deal for him as he is the head chef at the Springs Rescue Mission, which uses primarily donated dollars to feed the homeless.
After pitching his invention, he landed a deal with Shark Lori Greiner.
“So the ask was for $75,000 for 25 percent, and she countered $75,000 for 33 and a third, and all the entrepreneurs that work with her have a different circumstance. They're at different levels of the process,” said Peoples.
Since the episode aired, Peoples has sold his entire inventory of 1,000 bowls and has about 2,000 bowls back ordered.
He says to keep your eyes out because his bowls could soon come in different sizes and colors.
