Aaron Liskov and Andrew Zahornacky pitch UnPack, their packing service that delivers a suitcase full of clothes to your travel destination, in Shark Tank episode 805. The service basically rents clothes in a suitcase, complete with toiletries, and delivers them to your hotel (or AirBNB). You pack socks and underwear. When your stay is over, you leave the suitcase at the hotel's front desk; you keep the toiletries. They also offer a “companion winter unPack” with a down jacket, a lighter jacket, winter hat, scarf, gloves, and an umbrella, as well as toiletries.
The pair got the idea while traveling extensively for business. By the end of their stay, they looked haggard and, since they were constantly traveling, they didn't have time to do laundry or otherwise refresh their wardrobe. The company uses top brands like Columbia, Nike, and Ministry of Supply, assuring quality garments for the traveler.
UnPack services are only available in New York City currently. They plan on expanding to Boston, Philadelphia, Miami, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. Packs start at $39.99 and go up from there depending on how long your stay is and what clothes are in the pack. After returning your suitcase, they professionally clean each garment for the next renter.
Aaron and Andrew likely need cash for expansion. Will a Shark unpack their wallet for this business and invest?
UnPack Shark Tank Recap
Aaron and Andrew will pitch the panel of five Sharks on the business and its prospects for growth. They’ll need to convince Mark Cuban, Daymond John, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Grenier, 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 they’ll need to show them THEY are capable of running the company to “Shark standards.” A full pitch re-cap on UnPack will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
