If you watch Shark Tank on ABC, you'll see a local entrepreneur on the show next Friday January 28th!
Chet Beiler from Penn Township will appear on the show to pitch the sharks his chicken coop company OverEZ Chicken Coop. Chet markets ready-to-assemble backyard coop kits. He's hoping one of the sharks will agree to help with his plan to expand into Europe. He bought the chicken coop company in 2020 and according to his company's website, it was part of an acquisition-focused growth strategy at his 33-year-old, Manheim-based outdoor structures business, Amish Country Gazebos, which he and his brothers have built into one of the nation's largest gazebo retailers.
So...did any of the sharks bite? Chet said he promised ABC network officials that he wouldn't share any spoilers so we'll have to watch next Friday on ABC27 and see if his appearance was a success or not.
