Echo Valley Meats

Echo Valley Meats on Shark Tank

Gourmet Meat - Season 4 - Episode 426 - 4-5-2013

Seen on the Shark Tank  If your looking for the finest USDA Certified Meat that money can buy then look no further because it's coming to the Shark Tank Show. Dave Alwan is from Bartonville, Illinois and the owner of the well established Echo Valley Meats has a reputation second to none. Quality has always been #1 in this 16 year old business and now Dave is looking to expand in a major way. With a few brick and mortar stores successfully open and a very successful Holiday gift catalog that continues to grow in numbers, where else is left to expand on his gourmet meats?

Maybe Echo Valley Meats could expand into the lucrative catering market for weddings and parties? Actually Dave's already developed and been in this market for at least the last 6 years that's become a successful business all in itself. Could this be the reason why Alwin has chosen to bring his already successful business into the Shark Tank? A franchise play to increase his over-all sales for Echo Valley Meats?
 Dave also has several successful products being made with private labels which could be an even bigger potential market. Word has it that even The Swiss Colony uses the Echo Valley Meats products within their catalog. With so many successful profit centers already in place, this will be most interesting to learn what direction Dave has in store for the Echo Valley Meats Brand.
To further build the Echo Valley Meats awareness within the community, Alwin also offers Deer processing during the hunting season. (When does this guy ever sleep?) Folks get to learn first hand about the quality of the Echo Valley Meats Brand that leads to several customers returning long after the venison is gone.

Echo Valley Meats Before the Shark Tank

This is a tough one because of how long Echo Valley Meats been in business and how successful Dave has already created in this trusted brand. Why would Dave Alwin want to bring in a partner (let alone a Shark) and give up part ownership in the company after 16 years of complete control?  Obviously he has even bigger, more ambitious plans and needs the Sharks help to make them a reality. The Sharks like BIG DEALS and this may be a whopper of a deal that Dave has in mind.

With so many verticals within the same general meat market, look for some very impressive sales numbers to entice the Sharks into a deal and possibly make one of the most interesting set of negotiations ever seen on the Shark Tank Show. Quality USDA Certified Meat delivered to your door is something everyone would be interested in, especially if you are a hungry Shark looking to make a deal.
season 4, episode 426, 4/5/2013With the best quality of any gourmet meat on the market also comes a price tag to match it. This is not your every day cuts of meat most could afford on an every day basis. But if your looking for the Best of the Best then the Echo Valley Meat Company simply is the Best Meat Money Can Buy!

    absolutely brilliant. Amazing media coverage from the Sharks on prime time TV without giving up a single percentage point of equity

  10. Dave Alwan and Echo Valley Meats is the real deal, folks. I have lived in Dallas and St. Louis - two cities known for their respective BBQ prowess, and I can tell you that it doesn't get any better than Echo Valley. From beef brisket down to their boneless pork rib (which, by the way, I tried for the first time last weekend and I'm hooked), Dave Alwan simply smokes the competition.

    I also saw you on the "tank" and being a resident of Illinois I was excited to hear about your business! Visiting your website, I am wondering if you might offer some smaller packages for those of us with only 1 or 2 folks to feed? Food for thought to expand your business! Wishing you much success.

    I just saw the follow up on the shark tank. I was in shock watching the employees handling all that meat without gloves. I'm a professional in the medical field and gloves help prevent foodborne illnesses.
