Off the Cob Tortilla Chips still growing 3 years after 'Shark Tank'

ITHACA (WSYR-TV) - On Friday Shark Tank will be celebrating $100-million in investments in addition to being featured on a special 20/20 right after the milestone episode.

In its eight years running, even companies that haven’t received investments still came out with a business boost.

Cameron Sheldrake, of Ithaca, was on the show in 2014 pitching his Off the Cob Tortilla Chips made with sweet corn.

None of the sharks took a bite of the deal but the young entrepreneur says the moment he returned home he had so many orders he ran out of stock for two months.

“We didn't have enough money to run out of chips,” said Sheldrake. “Our business doubled in two weeks.”

Nearly three years later, Off the Cob Tortilla products can be found on shelves in more than 300 stores nationwide.

“Our annual revenue is six times what they were when they aired,” added Sheldrake.
