Meet Duane "Myko" Cheers, Danita Claytor, and Jumoke Jackson, the friends and co-founders of Everything Legendary, a Black-owned vegan burger brand that can be found in your local grocery store.

Earlier this year, they landed a $300,000 investment deal on Shark Tank, and since then, the brand has become one of the fastest-growing plant-based businesses in the country.

Back in February, the trio pitched their business idea to the Sharks and ultimately inked a deal with billionaire investor Mark Cuban for $300,000 investment in exchange for 22% equity. Cuban's support helped them reach new customers instantly. In fact, they sold over $250,000 worth of burgers online within just 24 hours of the episode airing.
