Shauna Sledge and her husband Todd Sledge are CrossFit fanatics who live by a Paleo Diet. So they mostly eat meat, veggies, fruit and nuts – no processed foods, gluten and grains. Paleo dieters like to snack, too, so Shauna developed her own Paleo Diet Bar. It comes in two flavors – Cranberry Almond and Cinnamon Raisin. They pitched their business on Shark Tank in May 2015 but, alas, did not make a deal.
In April 2016, the Sledges were actively looks for investors. At the time, Shauna explained, “We’ve done the R&D but we need to raise capital to launch those (two new flavors).” Todd added, “Money is the biggest thing right now. We just need to raise capital. It’s so expensive to grow a brand and we’ve been pretty much self-funded thus far.” Unfortunately, the Paleo Diet Bars website is no longer live and the product is no longer available on Amazon.
According to LinkedIn, Shauna kept her day job as a registered dental hygienist and spinning instructor. And Todd runs his own real estate company in Denver, Colorado. [Related: 27 Favorite ‘Shark Tank’ Products — New List]
