Fun Time Express is a trackless train that can be rented for special events and operated in large venues like shopping malls and ball parks. The two owners of Fun Time Express, couple Kevin Ullery and Stan Krozel, pitched their business on Shark Tank in April 2016. They went into the Tank seeking a $125,000 investment in exchange for 20 percent equity. And they got exactly what they asked for from Kevin O’Leary and Lori Greiner.
On the show they were asked how they got into the trackless train business. They said they had a successful real estate business in Chicago, but when the market crashed they (like many other agencies) had to close their doors. It was a difficult time for them. And it was at that time that Stan suggested the idea. Kevin said he thought Stan had lost his mind but he trusted his instincts and they went for it. Fun Time Express is now available in the Kentucky/Indiana area. Based on Stan’s Facebook page, he’s returned to the real estate world (and promotes himself as “As Seen on TV”) and is also working as a tax advisor. And yes, he and Kevin are still together and making music with their band The Time Drivers (see below). (Stan is the lead singer; Kevin is on bass.) New episodes of Shark Tank air Sundays at 9pm on ABC.
