Float N Grill Shark Tank Update – Shark Tank Season 12

float n grillMikey Bashawaty and Jeremy Quillico seek a deal for Float n Grill, their grill that floats in the water, in  episode  1221. The guys basically designed a grill that floats on the water. Mikey had a small, 16 foot boat that he’d take to his local lake’s sand bar to hang out on warm days. The problem was, he couldn’t pack much into it and he and his friends wanted more food options.

One day, he designed a crude, floating grill. To everyone’s surprise, it worked. Jeremy did some online searching and discovered there were no floating grills out there. They took the time to patent it and come up with a good design and got a Kickstarter going in 2017. Unfortunately, they only managed to raise $862 on a $200,000 ask. Fast forward to 2021 and the guys have a patented product, inventory and they’re open for business.

The grills sell for $229 and have textured marine-grade vinyl, a built-in igniter, cup holders, two latches to lock the grill lid tight, a removable grease trap and a spot to hold the propane tank in place. It weighs 9 pounds and is 35. 5 inches long by 26. 5 wide by 6. 5 inches tall. They come in red or blue and are available on Amazon. Both men still have full time jobs, so they likely want a Shark to help them blow up sales.

Float N Grill Shark Tank Update

The Shark Tank Blog constantly provides updates and follow-ups about entrepreneurs who have appeared on the Shark Tank TV show. In the immediate aftermath of the show in May, 2021, they ran out of inventory. By July, 2021, they were available again. There is no evidence that the deal closed with Lubetzky at this time, but the guys told a Detroit Free Press reporter “he’s a cool guy. His team is exceptional.” Anytime we need a contact they are there for us.” Mikey told the same reporter “we are in the works with a major company that deals with grilling and I will leave it at that.”

Ultimately, the deal with Daniel did close. In December, 2021, the grills were featured in the Rolling Stone holiday gift guide. As of August, 2022, the licensing deal with the “major company” has not closed. The products are available for pre-order on their website and “currently unavailable” on Amazon. Life time sales are $1.2 million. In April, 2023, the grills are listed as “sold out” on the company website and Amazon. As of June, 2023, the website is down and social media is dark; looks like this business couldn’t stay afloat.
