Susie Taylor says she considered the harsh advice doled out to her on the national TV show ‘Shark Tank’ and realized she needed a businessperson to run the company and an outlet for sales. Her husband now runs the company and has put in systems to operate it more efficiently. Bibbitec now sells its bibs almost entirely on Amazon, which markets the products for them. The company expanded its line to seven styles of bibs manufactured in Hialeah, and in 2014 the company sold 3,000 bibs for average price of $22. “We put down ‘failure,’ but it’s the only thing that makes you grow,” Taylor says.
