Scrub Daddy may come as a surprise for many, given its price and utility, but those who have used it even once are not willing to part with the small little round smiley high tech sponge yet. Aaron Krause, the founder and patent holder of Scrub Daddy has a unique tale to narrate but what he has been up to lately is gearing up for his pitch battle at the Shark Tank TV Show. Aaron Krause has been a successful entrepreneur for about two decades in the automobile aftermarket industry and it has been barely a year or so he invented Scrub Daddy.
Presently, Aaron Krause has sold more than 100,000 units of Scrub Daddy and he is aiming for an investment of $100,000 in exchange of a 10% stake in his company. Given his entrepreneurial experience and the success of Scrub Daddy, the investment may seem to be unnecessary and the stakes being parted with might be undesirable but Aaron had learnt it the hard way that putting a product on the shelves is a lot more difficult than what it seems. Even after he has had enough experiences with companies like 3M and QVC, he hasn’t managed to hit the shelves at more than only 5 stores in Philadelphia. Most of his sales have been off these counters and the majority is through his website. The rest have been referrals. The Shark Tank TV Show would certainly offer Aaron the opportunity to utilize the kind of networks and connections the big investors have and to take a product like Scrub Daddy to national levels, any entrepreneur would need to press the right buttons on the phone.
Those who are not in the loop, Scrub Daddy is a sponge whose chemical composition is a trade secret, patented under the US laws. Its composition cannot be reverse engineered hence trying to do a back calculation to find out what it is would be futile. It cleans well and doesn’t smell, is robust and durable, something everyone would need at home, on the move or at office.
