On Season 12 of Shark Tank, husband and wife team Andrea Meggiato and Michelle Jimenez pitched The Pizza Cupcake. The cupcake shaped snack is filled with fresh mozzarella and tomato and wrapped in dough.
The two New Yorkers behind Pizza Cupcake went into the Tank seeking an investment of $125,000 in exchange for five percent equity. They ultimately accepted Lori Greiner’s (investor in breaded snack brands Bantam Bagels and Brazi Bites) offer: $125,000 for 12.5 percent equity and 2.5 percent advisory shares.
After the Shark Tank episode originally aired in January 2021, Pizza Cupcake continues to fulfill orders and promote the brand. The Pizza Cupcake couple was recently invited by Lori and Kevin O’Leary to help launch IG 4 Live. See video above.
