Ice Shaker is a 26 oz. stainless steel bottle that keeps drinks cold (into protein shakes) for up to 30 hours. The entrepreneur behind the product is Chris Gronkowski, brother of Super Bowl NFL champion Rob Gronkowski of the New England Patriots. When it came time for Chris to pitch his business on Shark Tank in October, he brought Rob and his other big (as in muscular big) brothers with him. The sales pitch worked. Gronk went into the Tank seeking a $100,000 investment in exchange for 10 percent equity. Ice Shaker received offers from all five sharks but in the end accepted a $150,000 investment from Mark Cuban and Guest Shark Alex Rodriguez for 15 percent of Ice Shaker.
Since Shark Tank, Ice Shaker has brought back its black powder coated bottles. It’s the same stainless steel but with a black finish. And it’s available in five different colored bands (blue, pink, purple, red, and grey). Customers can also personalize and engrave an Ice Shaker for an addition $15 (see below). In December, Gronkowski told 2paragraphs that a 16 oz. bottle is coming soon, and the special edition Gronk Shaker is expected in January. New episodes of Shark Tank (Season 9) air Sundays at 9pm on ABC. [27 Favorite ‘Shark Tank’ Products — The List]
