The Story behind Seriously Slime!
Sarah and Shannon were overwhelmed with their daughter’s love for slime making! There is glitter slime, marshmallow-like slime, slime with foam beads that pop and grow in the dark slime. Frankly, which kid wouldn’t love it? They did appreciate the creative magic and the simple satisfaction that slime making brought their kids. But it was overshadowed by the frustration of cleaning up the mess left behind. They also noticed that not all slime was equal. Some were called back for being toxic, some didn’t work at all. All this led them to the idea of cultivating a fun and play driven environment where kids could experiment and be social without having to worry about making a mess! Thus, Seriously Slime came into existence.
The Development of Seriously Slime!
Sharon and Shannon started testing their business plan by holding slime workshops at Shannon’s Little Beans Café. The children had lots of slime and tools available to them. They learned new techniques slime techniques. Since there was so much slime available that the parents individually may not be able or willing to spend, it became a huge opportunity to explore. It was an instant success and soon the Slime workshop outgrew the Little Beans Café. That was when they opened their first space solely dedicated to their new business. With gaining connections they opened a second store.
