Entrepreneurs Jennifer Couch, Amberly Hall and Kristy Moore appeared on ABC’s Shark Tank to introduce their company, Holiball, to the Sharks getting an investment in their business.
The three cousins presented their products Sharks Mark Cuban, Kevin O’Leary, Daymond John, Barbara Corcoran and Lori Greiner. Holiball is a larger than life Christmas ornament designed to bring more joy to the holiday season.
According to the episode synopsis, « Houston, Texas cousins are proving it’s going to be big or go home with their array of giant, inflatable Christmas ornaments. ”
Holiball was designed and founded by three cousins from the Houston, Texas area. Amberly Hall, Kristy Moore and Jennifer Couch. According to the company’s website, the three of them came up with the idea on a road trip.
« Neither of us had any experience with balls, but we made it, » says the website. “After countless hours, numerous ball samples, hand-cut paper prototypes, a lot of Googling, late nights, blood, sweat, tears and hugs … we brought the first holiball onto the market. ”
According to their website, the cousins first sold their products at the Chi Omega Christmas Market in Dallas, Texas, but they later expanded and started selling at the Home & gift shop in the Dallas Market Center.
Then in January 2020 they hit the road and started selling across the country. They struggled to grow due to the coronavirus pandemic, but ended up in the Shark Tank less than a year after starting their business. .
At the time of writing, the holiball is available in over 20 colors and in two different sizes. Each ball can be bought 18 « or 30 » in diameter.
The entire collection is available online and at select retailers in Houston. Prices range from $ 40 to $ 60.
An air pump is available for $ 35, and there was also a Whataburger collection that was sold out at the time of writing.
When companies choose Shark Tank, the Sharks always question why they’re there before offering any money. When sales are high without an investor, the sharks sometimes find it difficult to offer money to the business.
However, when it comes to the holiballs, the founders want to expand their offering to large stores, and they generally want their product to be more readily available across the country.
The founders are currently using a Latin American sales channel to develop their products. They also work with several Houston stores and companies to create custom holiballs.
The balls have also been featured in Christmas displays in Prada Windows, which increases the likelihood that the sharks will buy into them.
