SINCE OCTOBER 16, 2015, THE NIGHT WE APPEARED ON ABC'S PRIMETIME HIT TV SHOW, REALITY SERIES SHARK TANK,
A LOT HAS HAPPENED AT DUDE HQ.
The DUDE startup co-founders nearly secured a deal with Shark Tank tycoons Robert Herjavec and Kevin O'Leary. The co-founders and the investors went back and forth, nearly settling on a deal. Meanwhile, Daymond John and Barbara Corcoran were skeptical about DUDE Wipes. But when billionaire Mark Cuban came back with his offer, the contestants promptly accepted.
Mark Cuban gave us a shout-out on Good Morning America and we appeared in the Chicago Tribune, Business Insider, Forbes, Inc., WGN Radio, Bustle, Shark Tank Podcast, and AmericanInno.com.
During the 2016 World Series in Chicago, there were several sightings of a DUDE Wipes sign during the weekend at Wrigley Field. The internet took notice and Barstool Sports ranked Dude Wipes as the best sign of the weekend. Some people are saying it helped break the curse.
In October we announced a deal with Target for DUDE Wipes to appear on shelves in over 75 Chicagoland and Central Illinois stores. DUDE Products are now in 15,000 Target stores across America.
We also dropped our Take It to the Hole video featuring Mark Cuban, which went viral with over 1 million views on Facebook and over 200,000 views on YouTube
We made our second appearance on Shark Tank, where we closed a retail deal with Walgreens, putting DUDE Products in over 4,300 stores. Our second appearance was covered by Inc., WGN Radio, and Americn Inno. Since we made our deal with Mark in 2015, we had gone from $250,000 in sales to $3.2 million in less than two years.
Our work with MMA fighters also continued, when Justine Kush pooped herself in the ring during a UFC fight. We couldn’t sponsor Justine’s trunks like we did with Tyrone Woodley because the UFC had since banned it, but we were able to send Justine a boatload of DUDE Wipes for her trouble
The DUDE universe expanded again with DUDE Face Wipes, giving DUDES everywhere a quick and effective way to keep their money makers fresh and clean when they’re on-the-go.
The DUDES also fulfilled a boyhood dream when they threw out the first pitch at a Chicago White Sox game! Oh, and comedian Sarah Silverman and Dwyane Wade joined DUDE Nation, no big deal.
As if DUDE Products weren’t easy enough to get, we were selected by a little company called Walmart for their Made in the USA initiative, bringing DUDE Wipes to 4,400 stores across the US.
Later in the summer, we heard about a crappy story Arizona Diamondbacks reliever Archie Bradley told the Yahoo! MLB Podcast, where he sharted himself shortly before entering a game. Archie was taking a “nervous pee” before going when the shart attack occurred, requiring him to clean up the mess after his appearance. DUDE HQ sprung into action, giving him enough DUDE Wipes to keep him pitching clean innings for the rest of the season.
We weren’t done making our mark on the sports world. If you told us we’d ever have the opportunity to be the primary sponsor for a NASCAR driver, let alone a guy whose nickname is DiBurrito, we would have laughed in your face. But that’s exactly what happened with the No. 32 Ford driven by rising-star Matt DiBenedetto at at the Gander Outdoors 400 at Pocono Raceway.
Not satisfied with making our mark on two major sports leagues in one year, we sprang into action to back New York Jets running back Isaiah Crowell when he was fined by the NFL for his butt wiping touchdown celebration against the Cleveland Browns. The story blew up, with ESPN, Barstool Sports, Sports Illustrated, Yahoo Sports, The Washington Post, New York Post, and Bleacher Report all covering the story. A proper wipe should never be a punishable offense.
At this point the wipes game could no longer hold us, so we upped our game with DUDE Powder. Now DUDES can keep their third pit smelling fresh and clean, with the stank protection they deserve. DUDE Products are now in over 12,000 stores, including Kroger, Meijer, Jewel, Target, Safeway, Albertsons, and Walmart.
THE MARK CUBAN EFFECT
Mark and his team are always available to us. Whether it's advice or connecting us with key contacts, their door has always been open and we couldn’t be more appreciative of that.
DUDE WIPES TO THE MOON
While the last couple of years have been crazy, we feel like we are just scratching the surface of our potential as a company. Thanks for being a part of the ride!
