OatMeals NY After Shark Tank – Where Are They Now?

Despite endorsements for Lori, it appears the deal for OatMeals NY did not close. There has been no sign of a partnership with Starbucks and the company is not included in Lori’s list of Shark Tank companies.

OatMeals NY has maintained its one and only location in New York’s Greenwich Village where it continues to serve oatmeal lovers through delivery and takeout.

  1. Barbara’s deal was far better. Starbucks was already selling oatmeal in their stores. Starbucks is hyper margin driven. Why would they ever give up margin to an unknown brand for a category that they already have filled? Lori led this woman on a bum deal!!!

  2. The smart deal was Barbara’s deal. It wasn’t contingent on anything. Food truck sales happen all over nyc, I live here I see it all the time. She would’ve made a killing with trucks all over and franchising as opposed to taking the get rich quick contingency route of hoping to land Starbucks and look at her now. Stuck in her 350 square foot space in Greenwich village with no End game in site. Should’ve listened to barbara
