What is Sweep Easy?
The Sweep Easy is a broom with a built-in scraper. The broom is made to handle tough stuck-on messes without the need to bend down and scrub or scrape. The broom’s scraper extends from the center of the broom with a quick push-button and extendable handle.
Who Founded Sweep Easy?
The Sweep Easy was created by Shane Pannell. He started the business as a stay-at-home dad of three. Pannell is still the President of SweepEasy LLC.
The Sweep Easy broom idea came to Shane Pannell as he scraped up spilled food on his hands and knees in his kitchen. Pannell created the sweep easy in his garage. It took him about a month to make the Sweep Easy broom.
Pannell shopped his idea around to different businesses he thought would find the broom helpful. He went to bakeries, theaters, and schools. After confirmation that the product would be something, many were interested. He applied to trademark the Sweep Easy in 2010. Then he began looking for funding. This search led him to the Shark Tank.
