Mr. Tod's Pie Factory

Tod Wilson, from Somerset, N.J., went on Shark  Tank to pitch his homemade pie company. The pies are made with only the finest ingredients, spices, and butters, with his 4-inch sweet potato pie being the main seller. Wilson's goal was to take his company and launch it into a household brand. While on the show, he pitched his company and asked for $460,000 for a 10 percent stake in the business. "Sharks" Barbara Corcoran and Daymond John invested for the full amount but in turn asked for 50 percent of the company. Since making the deal, Wilson tripled his business, opened a new retail location, and sold tens of thousands of pies on QVC.
