David Dafoe

“It’s a big month for Louisville beverage developer David Dafoe.”

His downtown business, Flavorman, 809 S. Eighth St., has been highlighted in Fortune Magazine as one of the 100 fastest-growing urban businesses in America. And Friday, a product his company helped develop will be featured on the ABC television show “Shark Tank.”


Flavored-wine makers BeatBox of Texas enlisted the beverage architects at Dafoe’s Louisville-based drink development company to create four flavors of their unique mixed drinks packaged in neon-coloreed boxes resembling the popular beat boxes.

Will the entrepreneur-hosts of “Shark Tank” like the product enough to invest? Find out Friday at 9 p.m. on WHAS11.
