Shark Tank Contestant to Speak at Winthrop University

Posted: Updated:

Former “Shark Tank” contestant, Julie Busha, stopped by the FOX Carolinas studio to talk about her product, Slawsa, and time on ABC’s hit reality television series.

Busha will speak at her alma mater, Winthrop University, Thursday evening at 7 pm. The event is part two of mock Shark Tank series called Eagles Nest started at the university.

For two years, Julie put herself in front of grocers, locally and nationally marketing Slawsa. She admits that having a business in the food and service industry is not easy, but the key is to make major chains aware of your product.

“I think the biggest thing is awareness because the major food manufacturers [they] have very deep pockets,” she said. “They can market with tens of millions of dollars to launch a brand right away.”

Julie says the product is in 5000 stores nationwide. For store locations, visit the Slawsa website.
