    This is a strange episode in The Profit series because Marcus determines early on in the episode that the product is nothing more than a tap that can be inserted into a coconut.

  5. Jackie's Cookie Connection On the Profit - Bankruptcy Filing



    Rachel Galant made good cookies, but she didn't create a good business. That, according to Marcus Lemonis on an episode of The Profit that featured Galant's company, Jackie's Cookie Connection. Lemonis' love for the product was outshone by the poor economics of the business model (which sold cookies for less than the cost to make them) and racked up millions in losses and debts.
