While drinking canned beverages, Patrick Parizo and Armand Ferranti craved the taste of a draft beer. Whether they are fishing, camping, or hanging out with friends, Patrick and Armand decided to design a product that would allow them to turn any can of beer into a draft-style beer. Draft Top is a patented bar tool that is designed to remove the top of a canned beverage and turn it into a cup. Removing the top from the inner rim of the can, there are no sharp edges or safety hazards, just a delicious beverage every time.

Seeking $300,000 in exchange for 10% equity in Draft Top, Patrick and Armand are hoping to partner with a Shark that can mentor them and help to make wise business decisions. Because they are growing so quickly, they also need financial assistance to help keep up with inventory. Selling $1.6 million of Draft Tops in 8 months, the product sales are outpacing production. The Sharks were concerned with the valuation until they heard the sales of the product coupled with excellent margins.

Although the Sharks are concerned because they have difficulting using the product, they are intrigued by the amount of sales Draft Top has seen in such a short time. Armand and Patrick assure the Sharks that they are utilizing social media to help instruct consumers on how to properly use the product. As a result, Daymond John decides to extend an offer to Draft Top. Daymond will invest $300,000 in exchange for 20% equity in the company. The friends quickly accept Daymond’s offer. Ironically, as soon as the pair left the tank, the Sharks were able to figure out how to use the product appropriately.

After watching how the Sharks struggled to use the product, are you surprised that Draft Top established a partnership deal in the Shark Tank? If you were a Shark, would you have been willing to invest $300,000 in this company? Sound off in the comments below!
