"I have been obsessed with the show since season one," Hayes said. "My husband and I always watch. Even before I had this company, I thought, 'I don't know what I'm going to do, but I want to do something and go on that show.'"
After making a video pitch and getting screened by producers, the pair headed to Los Angeles for a week last July. That's when Hayes and Bryant made their presentation to the sharks.
"When we walked out there, we had to stand there, not talking, nothing, for 45 seconds," Bryant said. "That felt like an eternity. (The sharks) were staring at us, we were staring at them."
The pair made their pitch to the sharks on Friday and didn't get a deal, but didn't leave disappointed. Addison's Wonderland ended up on national television in front of several million people. If though the sharks didn't bite, they're hoping some new customers will take notice.
