Rick and Kelly were originally contacted by Shark Tank two years ago, however the submission didn’t make the cut. So, Rick decided to take it up a notch and sent in an updated video with himself sitting shirtless in an Under the Weather Pod during a snowstorm. Shark Tank producers responded back within days and the rest is history.
The reveal party took place at the Game On! Sports Complex in Cincinnati, which Rick and Kelly developed.
Me and My Posse. These are the guys that keep me real - Rick P.
Long-time friends and former colleagues of Rick & Kelly sharing the big day.
“Not all of us could make it tonight but they are all here in spirit—we are a very big family. The Pescovitz and Mahan families are so incredibly proud of Rick and Kelly and all they have accomplished. We are thrilled to see that all of their hard work has paid off in a big way!” - Mike P. and Jim M.
“We’ve known Rick since he was a little boy and he’s always been a crazy dude, not afraid to risk it all and full of ideas. We couldn’t be more thrilled for Rick and Kelly. They have worked so hard and deserve all of the success in the world!” Deurk & Stephanie"
“Our daughter played on the same soccer team as Rick and Kelly’s older daughter, Madeleine. We still remember the original prototypes from six or seven years ago. Rick would bring his latest version to our games, pop up it up and make us sit in them and give him feedback. We may have thought he was crazy and, OK, we may have made a little fun of it. Now look who’s laughing!" - Steve & Laura Huster
"My big claim to fame for this company is that I created the logo when I worked at Kelly’s marketing firm. It is hard to believe that was nearly seven years ago! Having been involved from the very beginning it has really fun to watch them grow the company like this!"
Every company needs a good bookkeeper! “Rick is all entrepreneur and ideas. Kelly is all business and execution. To say they make a very good team is an understatement...” Vicki B.
Here are a few of the original prototypes from 2012 that were on display at the party. We've come a long way baby!
