Hire Santa

hire santaMitch Allen brings some Christmas cheer into the Tank when he pitches Hire Santa in episode 1012, the 2018 Shark Tank Holiday Special. Allen, a professional Santa for Hire, started the business about six years ago. Hire Santa is a database of professional Santas consumers can use when they want a Santa for an event.

Allen vets his Santas. Each Santa is background checked and insured. There is no cost for Santas to enroll as part of the Hire Santa crew, clients pay a set-up fee to find the right Santa. Customers include Malls, Christmas Parades, Company or Home Parties, or advertising professionals. All Hire Santa Santas have real beards and are professionals.

Playing Santa is a lucrative business. Santas at Malls make $30-$75 an hour while private events command $150-$300 an hour. One Santa charges $500 an hour for appearances on Christmas Day. Professional Santas spend $1000 for their costumes on average and many go to Santa School. A good professional Santa averages around $7000 during the Holiday season with some earning more than $15,000.

To use Hire Santa, you fill out a form on their website. Then you are matched with a Santa who can choose to accept or decline the gig. The client pays Hire Santa and Santa directly. The company has placed Santas all over the world! In addition to providing Santa for an event, you can buy everything to dress up as Santa yourself on the company website. There are Santa suits, boots, beards and accessories. There are even Santa helpers, Mrs. Santa, reindeer, snowman and bunny suits. Revenues for Allen's business are around $100,000 per year. He hopes the Sharks can help him rake in more holiday cash.
