Shark Tank Season 8 Premiere Episode 801
The Spoonful of Comfort is coming to the Shark Tank in Season 8 premiere episode 801 with a unique business sending Chicken Soup in the mail. There's a time for sending flowers, a fruit basket or a box of candy depending on the occasion. But there's nothing better than sending home-made chicken soup with a hand-written note wishing them to "Get Well Soon." The entrepreneurs behind Spoonful of Comfort is Marti Wymer, and Scott Gustafson from Salt Lake City, Utah, who'll appear together on Shark Tank Season 8 premiere episode on September 23, 2016.
Everyone knows Chicken Soup's been the #1 comfort food when you're not feeling good and used by mother's going back several generations. When Marti's Mom fell ill, She wanted to do something special other than sending flowers or a card. She instead made a big pot of chicken soup and sent it to her Mom in the mail. It was a Spoonful of Comfort worth its weight in gold ,and now it's an Official Shark Tank Product.
The Spoonful of Comfort's website makes it super easy customizing a care package shipped anywhere in the United States. Your personalized gift includes 64 ounces (half a gallon) of freshly made chicken soup or tomato basil along with the perfect sized ladle. The package also includes 1/2 dozen Bacci rolls, 1/2 dozen freshly baked cookies and a handwritten note using your words. The cost to order a Spoonful of Comfort package is only $69.99 + $14.99 (standard shipping) or $84.98 total.
Surprisingly, I never heard of Spoonful of Comfort or sending gourmet chicken soup in the mail, but apparently, it's been in business at least the past seven years. Marti talks about the challenges starting a new business on a shoe-string budget in the video below and shares what's been successful thus far. Whatever the marketing challenges she faced back in 2014 (when the video posted) will become a distant memory after the business appears on the Shark Tank Season 8 Premiere Episode next Friday night.
Watch Spoonful of Comfort on a brand new Shark Tank Episode next Friday night, September 23, 2016, and see if the Sharks invest in the Chicken Soup by mail concept. Personally, I'd choose a bowl of homemade soup instead of flowers or a box of candy everytime. The biggest challenge is convincing the Sharks it's not just the homemade soup customers are sending their loved ones for $69.99. It's an entire personalized care package to make a lasting impression. How many times has someone sent chicken soup when you were not feeling good?
