Every Grocery Store in America

For as long as I can remember I always wanted to be an inventor and invent a simple little product that everyone would know and love. Thats exactly what I did when I invented the Hotdog Ez Bun Steamer. But it wasn't until I lost my job a few years ago that I started chasing those dreams and developing the Hotdog Ez Bun Steamer into a product ready to hang in every grocery store in America, right next to the hot dog buns.

Did you know that the hot dog is America's number one food item and every year Americans consume over 10 Billion of them!

We need $15,000 to suppport a Grocery Store Market Test

We have spent over $100,000 securing patents, trademarks and manufacturing the Hotdog Ez Bun Steamer. Now we are on the verge of success, but don't have the funds necessary to produce new retail packaging in support of a full scale grocery store market test.

Accomplishments:

  • We have received 2 US issued patents and 2 trademarks
  • The Hotdog Ez Bun Steamer was featured on the Chicago evening news
  • Appeared in a national TV commercial for LegalZoom.com
  • I was named Inventor of the year at the 2010 ERA show
  • We have manufactured over 10,000 Hotdog Ez Bun Steamer units
  • Appeared on QVC multiple times
  • The Steamie 3 piece system was named best new product
  • Partnered with the countries largest grocery store distributor to conduct a full scale grocery store market test

Of the $15,000 about $10,000 will be used to produce retail card stock packaging, also know as clip strip packaging. Another $3,000 will be used for product safety testing and the last $2,000 will be used to paid for shipping the product to the distributor to begin the market test.
