Prime 6 is a sustainable, premium charcoal that was conceptualized in August of 2018 and brought to market in June of 2019. The start up has gained considerable success with milestones including their first nationally reaching purchase orders in major retailers such as Walmart, Lowe’s and Kroger, planting over 20,000 trees through their partnership with One Tree Planted, and a successful appearance on ABC’s Shark Tank. 

Co-Owners Riki and Oron Franco presented their mindfully made charcoal to the Sharks and ended up walking away with a $200,000 investment from Kevin O’Leary (aka “Mr. Wonderful”) for a 25% stake in the company.
