It started with an Idea!
Michelle Messina was the inventor of a pocket onto a popcorn bag
After years of reseach and development it expaned to any food container with an auxilary pocket and a Canadian Patent was issued
Kevin O'Leary on The Dragon's Den wanted to buy this Patent and company
In this blind interview, one season one, not knowing the show nor O'Leary, Michelle Messina turns down a 800,000 dollar a year royalty deal
based on him not disclosing his name and without a solid guarantee that he would manufacture
Kevin shocked by the her declining he waved $25,000 cash in her face upfront.
Keeping her intital investment cost in mind and truly wanting to serve the public with better hygeine she turned down the deal
in fear he would flip the deal and would only gain the $25,000 deal upfront.
In 2010 A Good Dragon was born; Brett Wilson
When Michelle's mother informed her that Brett Wilson will be hosting the Polo for Heart & Stroke
Michelle contacted the publisist, who is a friend of hers, and offered to sponsor the event with Kango popcorn bags with pocket
holding: a wetnap, toothpick, napking, discount coupon from Kernels and her business card.
Kernerls Sponsored her for her innovation and charitable deed.
