Coco Jack on Shark Tank
|Coco Jack Coconut Entrepreneur Dave Goodman|
appearing on the Shark Tank March 6, 2015
Saying Goodman had an obsession developing the perfect coconut opener might be the biggest understatement in Shark Tank History. Dave posted a few earlier prototypes on You-Tube demonstrating several ways to get inside a coconut, and by the looks of it, kept his Blacksmith extremely busy during the process. I chose the video below when Goodman had his first success opening up a coconut with a straight lid he'd always envisioned. OK, Maybe the Coco Jacks design still needed a little work at that time, but one thing is for sure; the now patented coconut opener is much, much easier to use than anything else on the market.
Once Dave perfected the Coco Jack Coconut Opener he did like most wise inventor's do these days; He started a crowd funding campaign on Indiegogo to prove the concept October 18, 2013. The campaign ended December 11, 2013 raising over $5,000.00 and enough to bring his invention to market. Goodman didn't stop at perfecting the easiest way to open a coconut with the Coco Jack, He's also invented other handy tools including the Coco Scoop, Coco Noodler, Coconut Sipper and a Coconut Brush.
Now in all fairness, if you watch the video above of what looks like lots of work cracking open a coconut, you need to watch this eight second video of the finished product. Yes, no doubt about it, this young lady makes the Coco Jack Coconut tool look a lot less intimidating and much easier to use.
The Coco Jack Reviews before Shark Tank UpdateIt looks like the Coco Jack was briefly on Amazon, but currently unavailable at this time. The last 5 Star review was only a few months ago in December, which is a little concerning for a new Shark Tank product this close to a brand new episode. Most Shark Tank products have plenty of inventory sent for Amazon Prime Members and for the reviews that follow, but for some reason, this isn't the case for the Coco Jacks products. I wonder how many orders this will cost the company this weekend alone after this Special "Made In America" Episode airs this Friday night. The good news is, all the Coco Jack Coconut products are currently for sale directly from the main website.
It might have taken Goodman over 100 prototypes to invent the ultimate coconut opener, but in the end, that's exactly what he's done. Can you imagine opening up coconuts any other way after learning about this new invention? It's hard to imagine the process getting any easier than this.
Good Luck Dave on this Special Episode featuring "Made In America" products with an invention for Young Thai Coconuts grown in Thailand. The only thing Coco Jack's doesn't sell related to coconuts is the Young Thai Coconuts themselves. Hm, now there's an idea turning one-time purchases into long-term loyal customers.
