I spoke with Mike Kane the other day. He's the CEO and co-founder of Cell Helmet. I was interviewing him for The Shark Tank Blog.
Cell Helmet is an iPhone case company based out of Pittsburgh. They sell cell phone cases with something extra: a damage guarantee. If your iPhone breaks in their case, they'll fix it for a small fee.
Mike and I chatted about the business and how manufacturing and customer service are handled right in Pittsburgh.This company truly is making it in the USA!
I got around to asking Mike THE QUESTION:
"Do you put ketchup on your hot dogs?"
"Yes. Absolutely. After all, I'm from Pittsburgh, the home of Heinz!"
While the answer is admirable for keeping with Cell Helmet's civic mission, I just have one thing to say to Mike: Heinz makes mustard too!
