Johnny Georges is the founder and creator of Tree-T-Pee. When he appeared on Shark Tank, he stood firm in his beliefs to put his customer, the American farmer, first. And in doing so, he brought the sharks to tears and won over America's hearts!
Johnny explained to the judges that his product, which could save farmers 3,000% of their water usage, costs $2.95 each to make. They were astounded to learn that he was only charging $4.50 each.
When asked why he didn't charge more, he became very emotional. Johnny explained that his own father taught him good ole core American values. He shared that he wanted to honor his dad's legacy by continuing to conduct his business in a way that truly helped the farmers.
"People don't realize food don't grow on the shelves on the grocery store." Johnny shared.
Not only is Johnny hoping to honor his own father, but he's trying to set a good example for his own two children, a then 17-year-old son and nearly 3-year-old daughter. "I want them to know that their daddy made a difference and set the example." Johnny said.
Farmers are the behind-the-scenes backbone of America, providing the nation with produce, from meat and vegetables to fruits. Without the proper resources to afford their farms, the entire country is at risk of losing daily essentials, such as food. With this in mind, it's no secret the world needs more people like Johnny. Don’t you agree?
Acts 20:35 - In all things I have shown you that by working hard in this way we must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’
Romans 12:13 - Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.
