Brandon and Keith Marz present Marz Sprays Vitamin Oral Sprays to the Sharks in episode 405. The father and son team developed the line of Marz Sprays products for people who want to take vitamins and supplements without swallowing pills. Because the vitamins are delivered in a liquid, spray form, the body absorbs them faster. Marz Sprays sells a vitamin C spray, a sleep aid spray, an energy spray, a kids vitamin spray, and a weight loss spray. All products are patented (or patent pending) and trademarked. Brandon and Keith conducted independent clinical studies on Marz Sprays too. They claim to have pending purchase orders for over $1 million and a potential licensing deal with Nature Made.
Marz Sprays Shark Tank Recap
Mark thinks Marz Sprays is a scam, and even when Keith tells him they have the ‘first mover’ advantage, Mark goes out. Daymond thinks it will be too difficult clearing Marz Sprays for sale in foreign countries, so he’s out. Robert isn’t a supplement person, so he’s out too. Lori likes the products and offers $200k for 30%, contingent on a deal with Nature Made. Kevin offers to partner with Lori, but she doesn’t want to; Kevin the offers $200K for 25% and Lori matches the offer.
Brandon and Keith confer and counter Lori with $200K for 25% with a “redemption option.” They say they’ll accept her offer if she gives them an option to redeem half her stock at four times the purchase price. Lori agrees and she partners with Marz Sprays.
