BarBees Bartending

barbees bartendingJess Blakeley and Willow Sprague seek a Shark’s investment for BarBees Bartending, their mixology classes for groups, in Shark Tank episode 1508. The pair started the business as a bartending/catering service in 2019. The Covid-19 pandemic forced them to pivot and they began offering virtual classes. Once the world got past Covid-19, they began offering in-person classes which were a hit.

The classes can be for a corporate event, bachelor or bachlelorette parties or just a fun evening activity for friends and family. They started the business in Nashville and have expanded to 9 other cities. Classes are about 90 minutes and range from $60-$90 per person. Participants must provide their own alcohol and the BarBees provide the rest.

In the classes, participants make 2-3 cocktails from a list of 11. BarBees Bartending supplies the mixers and offers cocktail accessories and other swag for sale. They can also add cheese pairings for an additional $20. With their measured growth, they likely want a Shark to help them expand to more cities.

A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but they’ll need to show them THEY are capable of running the company to “Shark standards.” A full pitch re-cap on BarBees Bartending will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
