Prime 6

prime 6Oron and Riki Franco hope to cook up a deal for Prime 6, their sustainable premium charcoal, in Shark Tank episode 1206. They started the business in September, 2018. Riki , who graduated Columbia Southern University with an MBA in 2012 has some experience mentoring start-ups. Oron got his Culinary Arts degree from the International Culinary Center in 2010 and has lots of culinary experience. The husband and wife team love cooking – especially on the grill.

What makes this charcoal so special and sustainable is it’s made from waste hardwood sawdust. They compress it and slow carbonize it into a hollow hexagonal design without any binders or additives. This makes for a denser, longer burning charcoal. The hexagonal design also allows for better airflow that lets it burn hotter and longer: 4-6 hours.  Because it’s so dense, you don’t need as much: one pound of  Prime 6 equals three pounds of lump charcoal. The result is a good charcoal experience with less clean up.

A 22 pound box of charcoal costs about sixty bucks. They sell on Amazon, Walmart.com and Lowes.com; they currently don’t sell on their website. To put things in perspective, a 35 pound bag of lump charcoal will set you back fifty bucks, but that will yield about 12 uses. The Prime 6 box yields 22 uses, so it’s a better value. While selling online is good, charcoal that’s stacked right in the grill section of a store will sell better. They likely want a Shark’s help getting into retail. Will the Sharks want to cook with this couple?
