Where Is The Kombucha Shop From Shark Tank Today?
By Nico Danilovich
Kate Field's business, The Kombucha Shop, supplies customers with the know-how and equipment to brew organic kombucha in their homes. Before appearing on Season 10, Episode 5 of "Shark Tank," she had already sold $3.2 million worth of her kits online, which impressed the sharks and got her a deal with not one but two sharks — Barbara Corcoran and guest shark Sara Blakely.
However, verbal agreements on "Shark Tank" aren't legally binding, and a PR Newswire announcement from 2021 mentioned that Kate Field ended up forging ahead without the help of the sharks. Regardless, her business grew steadily and experienced a boom in sales after its appearance on "Shark Tank."
Kombucha Shop's appearance on "Shark Tank" allowed it to get into retail, and it's now the biggest homebrew kombucha business in existence. Field eventually decided to hand the business off to somebody else, and in 2021 it was acquired by Habib Bakshi, whose expertise in revenue growth and digital marketing has tripled Kombucha Shop's sales.
