What is Kook N Kap?
Quirky ideas and kitchen gadgets can be a hit or an epic fail. The Kook n Kap was a gadget that would become one of those. The Kook n Kap is a hat designed for chefs and cooks to stop food smells that might get trapped in your hair and to keep your hair from getting into the food. The idea was to protect your hair from the daily smells of the kitchen but still be breathable so that your hair does not suffer from being covered by a hat all day.
Who Owns Kook N Kap ?
Kook n Kap was started by two entrepreneurs, Juli Deveau, a campus recruiter for Deloitte, and Ozma Khan a pharmaceutical rep for AbbVie. Neither came from a product development background however they were confident their product would revolutionize kitchens around the nation. Today, the two have returned to their former jobs.
In 2012, Juli and Ozma came up with the idea of designing a cap to protect your hair, after discovering their hair was picking up food smells. After receiving great initial feedback and feeling that their product was revolutionary, they started marketing on their social media pages and selling directly to the public. After selling roughly more than 1000 units they approached the Shark Tank investors for assistance with growing their business into an empire.
