Wanting to make clean hands accessible to anyone at any time, the husband and wife duo, Cindy and Gabe Trevizo, took to Kickstarter to fund their invention in 2018. Soon enough, they had a booming business in their hands. The two then headed to Shark Tank during Season 12 to try and get a shark to fund their company, Suds2Go, which sells convenient and portable handwashing products. Initially offering $200,000 for 10% equity, the two walked away with a deal from Robert Herjavecfor $200,000 in exchange for 15% equity. It’s been some time since the deal and we know that you’re itching for a Suds2Go update. Don’t worry, we’ll get right to that in less time than it would take you to wash your hands.
Shark Tank Suds2Go Portable Handwasher Update
Entrepreneur: Cindy and Gabe Trevizo
Business: Portable handwashing device
Ask: $200,000 for 10% equity
Result: $200,000 for 15% equity
Shark: Robert Herjavec
Suds2Go was born out of Cindy and Gabe’s desire to make handwashing more accessible to everyone. The patent-pending product allows users to carry foam soap and a small amount of water that they can use to wash their hands thoroughly on the go, without the need for running water. The product is reusable, refillable, and comes in a smaller and more affordable pocket-sized version that connects to disposable water bottles.
To no one’s surprise, Suds2Go has been a huge hit so far. According to Cindy and Gabe, the company has done $392,000 worth of sales in just a couple of months since they launched their website. However, this created an entirely new problem for them — distribution and logistics.
Because of its sales and huge margins, the sharks didn’t hesitate to make an offer. Even though Kevin O’Leary bowed out, he still acknowledged that this was a good product. He just could not invest in it because he already has investments in a similar company. After Mr. Wonderful went out, Daymond John swooped in to offer Cindy and Gabe $200,000 but for 22.5% equity. Robert Hejavic then quickly put his offer of $200,000 for 15% equity on the table. Because the two wanted to preserve as much equity in Suds2Go as possible, they ended up accepting Robert’s offer.
It’s only been a few months since the Trevizo’s accepted Robert’s investment offer on Shark Tank. However, in doing our research for our Suds2Go update, we’ve found that the portable handwashing company has only continued to grow. Suds2Go has become an even more sought-after product and has been featured in publications like Better Homes and Gardens.
Campers and those who frequent the outdoors just seem to love the convenience offered by Suds2Go. It’s probably only a matter of time before Robert’s investment grows exponentially.
