I spoke with Byron Young today. He's the guy with the bean bag bed/chair company called CordaRoys that appeared on Shark Tank in episode 417. I was interviewing him for The Shark Tank Blog.
Byron made a deal with the Queen of QVC, Lori Greiner, on the show. We chatted about his company history, what's happening going forward with his business, and dealing with Lori.
I also asked him THE QUESTION:
"Do you put ketchup on your hot dogs?"
"Yes I do. My favorite hot dog is one of those Chicago dogs with everything and ketchup."
I reminded him that putting ketchup on a hot dog is a serious offense in Chicago. He replied:
"That's why they have those little packets on the counter."
I might have to let Lori, a TRUE Chicago native, know about the habits of her latest business partner. Byron better hope she doesn't up her percentage on principle!
