Matthew Harris from Extreme Vehicle Protection answers THE QUESTION

I recently spoke with Matthew Harris (left) from Extreme Vehicle Protection. They make a car/cover that encapsulates vehicles to prevent damage from rising floodwaters or tides due to heavy storms. Harris, along with business partner kenney Lerner, appear on Shark Tank this Friday.

We talked about how they got on the show, how the product works, the benefits of owning a Hyundai, and what inspires Mr. Harris.

I also asked him THE QUESTION:

"Do you put ketchup on your hot dogs?"

His answer:

"HELL YEAH!"

When I told him a native New Yorker ought to be ashamed of such an answer, he said, "I guess I am a large child, but I'll take it."

Maybe that's why he moved to North Carolina, to escape scrutiny!

Jason Neubauer from The CoolBox answers THE QUESTION

I recently spoke with Jason Neubauer from The CoolBox. He, along with business partner Chris Stoikos, pitches his smart toolbox in Shark Tank episode 728.

We talked about his first child (due any day now), the pitfalls of overseas manufacturing, the Shark Tank experience, and the power of crowdfunding for a start-up business.

I also asked him THE QUESTION:

"Do you put ketchup on your hot dogs?"

His answer:

"I'm allergic to hot dogs."

The poor guy!

Bobbie Rhoads from Fun Bites answers "THE QUESTION"

I recently spoke with Bobbie Rhoads from Fun Bites. She did a deal with Lori Grenier back in Shark Tank season six. Her product is a food-cutter that instantly cuts food into small, fun, bite-sized shapes. It's a must have product for parents of picky eaters.

We chatted for about an hour. We talked about her road to the Shark Tank, how the "Shark Tank Effect" impacted her business, sales growth, and her plans for the future.

I also asked her THE QUESTION:

"Do you put ketchup on your hot dogs?"

Her answer: "YES!"

Apparently Bobbie spent too much time cutting up food for her kids and she forgot to cut the mustard!

Dee and Angie Cowger Answer THE QUESTION

Dee and Angie Cowger have been in the hot dog business for 25 years. They own and operate The Custard Stand, a six unit mini-chain of hot dog joints in West Virginia. They also make thousands of pounds of hot dog chili per week in their production facility behind one of their shops and sell it in Wal Mart, Sam's, IGA and many other stores. Dee and Angie are appearing on Shark Tank and I spoke with them about their business.

I recently interviewed the "Hotdogtrepreneurs" for the Shark Tank Blog. We talked hot dogs, business, a little hunting and what it was like for them "in the Tank."

I also asked them THE QUESTION:

"Do you put ketchup on your hot dogs?"

Their answer: "Only when we don't put chili on our hot dogs!"

My guess is that NEVER happens!
