Last night on CBC's Dragons' Den, two local residents took on the dragons panel in hopes of a deal. Dr. Penny Forrester and Kerri Sedore (pictured above) of Professional Weight Loss Services were asking for $250,000 for 25% of their company, but unfortunately their business plan wasn't of interest to the dragons.
This is not the first time an entrepreneur from Peterborough has tried to strike a deal on the show. A couple of years ago, the owner of the Eco Laundry Room went on the show hoping the dragons would assist in helping with their plans of expansion. (Eco Laundry Room continues to have their location here on Bethune Street, as well as one in Toronto.)
So who in the Patch has the million dollar idea that the dragons would bite on?
