‘Shark Tank’ revisited: Hungry Harvest, ezpz Sprëtz, luminAID, and Controlled Chaos (again)

Shark Tank -While “Shark Tank” was off the air this past week due to the NBA Finals, we are pleased to report that we are now back in action! There’s a repeat airing on ABC tonight, and this one originally aired early this year. Heck, we’ve even done a revisited piece on it before, but it was all the way back in March … which means that there has been enough time in between to merit another update as to how some of these businesses are faring.

This episode also includes an update on luminAID, so be sure to visit their site and see some of the stuff they’re offering in order of Father’s Day.

Sprëtz – We appreciate in particular that they seem to be doing Father’s Day specials, which is a welcome sign given that this shows a commitment to staying current and trying to continue to hustle. Still, we don’t detect too many changes from when they were first on the show, and they could benefit from a more immersive website than the one they have now. It makes it easy to buy the hand / breath freshener, but that’s about it.

Hungry Harvest – The more we look at them over time, the more we love what they are bringing to the table (literally). While not too much has changed since March, we do detect even more add-ons that you can add to their “recovered produce” business. What this company has done since the show that is so smart is partner with other socially-conscious food brands and tried to promote one other to create a better buying experience. That way, you can feel good about what you’re buying, and do much of your shopping in one place.

Controlled Chaos – This hair-care line hasn’t changed too much in terms of their web presence since the show first aired, but what we like to see many months after airing is that they are still doing well, and finding ways to reach out to either fans or potential consumers. They are leveraging social media extremely well, and there’s still that sort of drive you want to see from a company working to get to that next level. Good on them.

ezpz – Ultimately, ezpz is such a strange company to routinely highlight since more so than many others this season, it never really felt like they needed the show. They had sales going in, and they certainly didn’t need a Shark to continue selling their unique feeding mats. Maybe they could get more into getting character licenses and other things to further facilitate their mission statement of making mealtime into fun-time for young kids, but other than that it’s hard to really offer up many recommendations.
