1. The Original Shrimp Burgers

Shawn Davis, the man behind Chek Big Shake came up with the idea of making shrimp burgers when his 12-year-old daughter left eating meat for shrimps. Davis saw this as an excellent business idea and brought in the shrimp patties and replaced hamburgers with it.

This idea was a huge hit with the general public but unfortunately, it didn’t impress the Sharks! None of the Sharks came forward to make a deal and refused to invest $200,000 for 25% of the company.

But Shawn did not let this bring him down and he went ahead with the Chef Big Shake anyway! And the brand became one of the most successful rejected ideas on Shark Tank. They managed to do a business of approximately $5 million and are available in over 22,000 stores across America.
