Cramerton resident to debut Slawsa on ABC's 'Shark Tank' Friday



CRAMERTON, N.C. - On Friday night, Cramerton resident Julie Busha will be featured on ABC's "Shark Tank" on WSOC-TV at 9 p.m.

Busha has declared the day "National Slawsa Day," and is encouraging everyone to celebrate her relish, Slawsa.

Slawsa is a unique "slaw-salsa" hybrid condiment that adds a sweet and spicy kick to your favorite foods.

Slawsa is available in more than 5,000 grocery stores across the U.S. and Canada, including Kroger, Publix, Food Lion, Meijer, Piggly Wiggly, Hy-Vee, select Walmart, Ingles Markets, Lowes Foods, Food City and more.

"Most people are not aware that each of the sharks 'tweet' during each episode and we'd love for the viewing public to not only tweet along with them, but also with us," said Busha. "How cool is it that you might get a response back from one of the sharks? They really did start a trend that has no doubt grown the popularity of the show because the fans feel so much closer to it."

The brand is encouraging all tweets to also include the #sharktank and #slawsa hash tags.

The five sharks Busha will pitch to include Mark Cuban (@mcuban), Daymond John (@thesharkdaymond), Kevin O'Leary (@kevinolearytv), Lori Greiner (@lorigreiner) and Robert Herjavec (@robertherjavec).

The Slawsa twitter account is @slawsa and a teaser video is currently posted at the Slawsa website.

Immediately after the West Coast airing, Slawsa plans to post a special video message from Busha on the website along with other special news.

Busha is a 2000 graduate of Winthrop University, and will b be speaking to students about her "Shark Tank" episode on Nov. 21.
