Squatty Potty first entered the Shark Tank on November 14, 2014 and made a deal with Lori. Back then, Heavy interviewed founder Robert Edwards about his company that is “changing they way America poops.”
We caught up with him for the third time to see how his company is growing in anticipation of his Tank revisit on May 8th.
He told us about…
