It's only been five months since tennis player Maria Sharapova launched her candy line, Sugarpova, and it's already raking in some major dough!!
The sweet beauty put in $500,000 to start up her tasty company, and with 1 million bags expected to sale in a year, a quarter of the distribution sold in only three months!
With a minimal budget for marketing, Sharapova's agent Max Eisenbud revealed:
“Every week, everywhere she goes, people are talking to her about it. It’s also the power of social media, the power of her almost 9 million fans on Facebook."
The star charges $5.99 per bag and receives $1.10 back in profit, so girlfriend is definitely bringing in a lot of moola.
Apparently Maria's "star power” is all she needs to sell her sweet delightful treats!!
