In the time since college-aged entrepreneurs Keeley Tillotson and Erika Welsh appeared on Shark Tank back in 2012, they have been sued, dropped out of school, and had their handshake deal with Barbara Corcoran fall through. They have also turned their fledgling business selling healthy peanut butter into a thriving enterprise, expecting $7 million in sales this year. That's a tremendous increase from the $14,000 in sales they had when they taped their Shark Tank appearance in 2011.
At the time, they were called Wild Squirrel Nut Butter, but as Forbes reported, became Wild Friends in 2013 after Squirrel Brand took legal action against them. They also never saw the investment from Corcoran, but Tillotson told Forbes that turned out to be a good thing.
"On their end, they decided not to invest, and we were glad because we were not ready."
