Donald Trump's Steak Business With Sharper Image Failed After 2 Months
Overview of this ControversyDate Originated:
May of 2007Categories: Donald TrumpDonald Trump got into the steak selling business for two brief months, in the summer of 2007. He partnered with the unlikely company Sharper Image, a consumer home electronics store, to sell the steaks to consumers, as well as having an option to buy various steak packages online. Neither Trump nor Sharper Image directly made much, if any, money from the venture.
Trump claimed the steaks were "the world's greatest steaks.. in every sense of the word", even though a vast majority of reviewers gave the steaks very negative reviews. Reports list the price for the beef steaks were upwards of $50 per pound. Shaper Image ended the partnership after two months, and Trump also stopped selling them for good at the same time.
