Pat Yates hopes the Sharks put on Happy Feet in episode 519. Happy Feet is the name of his comfy slipper company he’s been running since 1996. The oversized slippers look like giant sneakers and wearing them is like walking on a cloud. The slippers come in a huge variety of color patterns and have licensing arrangements with the NBA, NCAA, NFL, and MLB.
Yates sells Happy Feet on Amazon, his own website and through a mall cart/kiosk program business opportunity. He’s grown the business mostly through his wholesale/kiosk program and is proud of his family oriented approach with his customers. They also have a fundraising program so organizations can raise money by selling comfy slippers.
As a long-term established business, Yates is likely looking to the Sharks for a partnership for further growth or perhaps to tool up manufacturing.
Happy Feet Shark Tank Recap
Pat will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. He’ll need to convince Mark Cuban, Lori Grenier, Kevin O’Leary, Barbara Corcoran, and Robert Herjavec that the company is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but he’ll need to show them HE is capable of running the company to “Shark standards.” A full pitch re-cap on Happy Feet will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
