On tonight’s episode of Shark Tank, entrepreneurs Deborah Torres and Jonathan Torres make a pitch for their plant-based food company Atlas Monroe.
Based in San Jose, California, Atlas Monroe (previously named Veganation) offers a variety of vegan food dishes, including their hero dish Cajun Fried Chicken, along with ribs, deep fried stuffed turkey rolls, classic Caribbean rice and peas, and more.
The company’s plant-based Cajun Fried Chicken and Waffles dish was named best fried chicken dish at the 2018 National Fried Chicken Festival by Time’s Extra Crispy editor and event judge, Ryan Grim. Just to be clear, Atlas Monroe beat out real fried chicken meat dishes.
During tonight’s episode, Deborah and Jonathan face five Sharks in the tank: Mark Cuban, Barbara Corcoran, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Greiner, and guest Shark Rohan Oza.
While deal details remain under wraps until airtime, Deborah and Jonathan reportedly make a “shocking decision.”
