Twitter Facebook LinkedIn Flipboard 12 YouTube First into the tank are Joe and Maranda Dowell of Joe’s Gourmet Fish Fry, seeking $150,000 for 15 percent equity. Joe’s Gourmet Fish Fry is a seasoned seafood breading mix that can be used on shrimp, fish, meat, vegetables and more. According to their website, the “seafood coating absorbs less oil. We use high quality ingredients that absorb less oil and allow you to really enjoy the flavour of your seafood or vegetable.” A single pack costs $4.25. The sharks agree that the breading tastes amazing and are inspired by their story. To date, they have done $409,000 in sales and are in more than 800 stores nationwide. Kevin O’Leary is worried about the valuation and goes out. Lori Greiner thinks the breading mix tastes “fabulous” but doesn’t view it as an investable business. She goes out, followed by Mark Cuban. He adds, however, that he is inspired by their “relentless” spirit. Robert Herjavec likes the product but doesn’t feel as though it would be fair to make an offer due to Dowell’s father’s equity stake in the business. Daymond John likes the duo and ultimately offers $150,000 for 25 percent. They counter 18 percent, but quickly take the counteroffer back. They accept his initial offer.
