Big Chef Shake Coming To A Town Near You
I'm not sure how I missed this, but just seen on twitter that Big Chef Shake from Shark Tank Season 2 has already started a crowdfunding campaign going on at Indiegogo.com right now. Big Chef Shake aka Shawn Davis, is raising money to go on the Shrimp Burger Tour and bring the Shrimp Burgers to towns all over the country.
To get this crowdfunding campaign kicked off Shawn first needed to make a video that was looking more like a Infomercial or one of his many appearances on QVC than it did anything else. Fortunately his Daughter shows up and has a completely different and more hip way of getting the Big Chef Shake Tour kicked off in the right direction. She decides they can make a Prince of Bel Air type Rap Video made famous by Will Smith.
No matter what happens with this campaign I would imagine this video is now a "priceless" piece of Art that the Davis Family will always treasure the time spent making it together. Some things in life are much more important than all the money in the world, and I believe this is one of them.
According to the Indiegogo page, Shawn Davis is trying to raise $50,000.00 to get the Shrimp Tour kicked off as they spread the word about his Healthy Shrimp Burger around the country. What's interesting about this Crowd Funding Project that a lot of Entrepreneur's should take note is first Big Chef Shake doesn't "need" the money to make the Shrimp Burger Revolution idea a reality. The CBS Shrimp Burger Business has already made Shawn one of the most successful contestants seen on the Shark Tank and the one business Mark Cuban regrets most not investing in when He had the chance.
Perhaps the very best reason going the Crowd Funding route for many new business ideas is the fact you can gage public interest in how successful the idea is. Even if the campaign doesn't raise your projected goal, it doesn't mean it's a bad idea, it just means it needs modified until you find that winning formula.
It looks like the Big Chef Shake Tour will indeed be coming to atleast 8 lucky cities regardless of what happens with Indiegogo Campaign. The more interest shown in your part of the country, the greater the chance Big Chef Shake will be visiting to your town.
The campaign ends October 30, 2013 and the Big Chef Shake Tour gets kicked off just a few days later on November 3, 2013 in Landover, MD.
Below is the schedule Big Chef Shake is already scheduled to appear after the campaign ends. More cities will be added to the list depending on how successful the crowdfunding campaign is over all. You can get a great deal on some Shrimp Burgers and help support the Big Chef Shake Tour at the same time by showing you're support over at Indiegogo.com.
