Renee Heath, Entrepreneur and co-Founder of Banana Loca, will share the story behind her title with us on October 16, 2022.

Figuring out a way to stuff bananas with other foods without breaking them is turning out to be very profitable for the King of Prussia-based Banana Loca Company, writes Anna Hendrix for the NewsBreakSite.

Renee Heath and Bechara Jaouden in Montgomery County created a kitchen gadget that allows snack-lovers to place items such as peanut butter and jams inside a banana and then eat the fruit as usual. They named the device Banan Loca and created a company to produce, market, and sell the gadget.

The pair appeared on Shark Tank in December, where they sought $250,000 in exchange for 25 percent stock in their company. Their presentation went flawlessly, and the big banana mascot they brought with them turned out to be a big hit. By the end of the episode, they had managed to snag two deals for the company, with Mark Cuban and Kevin O’Leary.
