In case you missed it, our Shark Tank partner, Robert Herjavec, recently got engaged to his Dancing with the Stars partner Kym Johnson. We caught up with him to see how it went!
1. First of all, congrats on the engagement! The Hungry Harvest family is very happy for you. What did you do for the proposal?
RH: Thank you! It’s an exciting time and I’m a very lucky man. I surprised Kym by taking her for a tour of our new place and having the roof top set up with roses and candles. Then when we returned home that night I had 20 of our closest family and friends surprise her and continue the celebration. It was a really magical night.
2. What stood out about Hungry Harvest so that you felt compelled to make a deal with me on the show?
RH: It was a combination of things. I firmly believe you have to have a greater purpose in life and I love the mission this team is on. Donating to a family in need every time Hungry Harvest delivers is an incredible way to give back. In the Tank I was impressed with you guys and how you knew your numbers, showed passion for the business and had a plan for growth. It’s as simple as that.
3. What, in your eyes, is the future potential of Hungry Harvest? How big do you think this can grow?
RH: That’s up to you! Hungry Harvest’s model is extremely scalable and we’ve already seen new cities come on board since you aired in the Tank this season. Trends towards healthy, convenient food delivery are only increasing across North America and with a noble mission of recovering harvests and offering organic and all fruit options, Hungry Harvest has untapped potential to expand.
4. Can you give me, as the CEO of Hungry Harvest, one piece of advice to stick to while growing this company?
RH: Think big. And then when you second guess yourself – think bigger. Yes you have to do the little things to make sure you execute flawlessly but you also have to open yourself up to the potential of this company and realize that it’s in your hands to achieve greatness. I always say it’s up to you to seize the opportunity. I used to think too small and almost be afraid to want the level of success I thought was possible for my business. Don’t make that mistake.
