Treasure Chest Pets™ began when Sandra Castillo approached 7 time inventor/licensor Lisa Lloyd to help her bring her newly patented invention to market. Lloyd's products have grossed over $30 million in retail sales and Castillo hoped to leverage that success and license her new patent to an existing successful company. Lloyd has a background in business, having made investments of her own, before beginning the Treasure Chest Pets business. She's looking for a partner who will be as invested in her product as she is. She comes to the Shark Tank with maxed-out credit and a mortgage looming on her family home. Without an investment, Lloyd faces losing not only her business, but her home as well.Lisa Lloyd brings her Treasure Chest Pets to the Shark Tank in episode 108, after being invited to audition for the show. She had previously presented her products on Pitchmen, working with Billy Mays. She created a niche market, selling her products through several small stores, but needs more capital to meet the demand for larger orders. Launching her product onto the national stage will require a sizeable capital investment and the marketing experience the Sharks bring to the table.Lisa Lloyd is from Tucson, Arizona. She started a company called Treasure Chest Pets, which she claims is the next best plush-toy line. Lisa Lloyd lives with her husband, three kids, mother in law, father and stepmom under one roof, which makes it a pretty crowded house.
