PLEASANTON, Calif., Feb. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- From a moment of inspiration to the stage of Shark Tank to millions of satisfied customers, The Comfy® has had a wild ride over the last four years. Now they're ready to celebrate with all their fans as they name February 20th National Comfy Day.
National Comfy Day isn't just a day to get dressed in one's original ultra-cozy, oversized wearable blanket. It's a day to slow down, let the worries of the world disappear, and savor the feeling of well-being that only getting wrapped up in a giant hug can bring.
For Michael & Brian Speciale, the idea of The Comfy®, the patented wearable blanket that in four years has gone from an appearance on ABC's Shark Tank to being sold in over 100 countries through 5000 retail doors to millions of happy customers, came from a personally challenging time.
"The idea for The Comfy® came up four years ago while I was going through a difficult time," explained The Comfy® co-founder Michael Speciale. "I needed comfort, and The Comfy® became something to focus on that wouldn't just make me feel warm and safe, but others too."
After brokering a deal with Barbara Corcoran on ABC's Shark Tank, brothers Michael and Brian Speciale transformed her $50K investment into a multi-million dollar brand that now gives folks in 100+ countries around the world the feeling that they are being wrapped up in a giant hug.
Through their Comfy Cares initiatives, they've been able to give back to the community and spread the happy. To date they've donated to causes helping those in need, frontline workers, and the homeless, and are currently partnered with the Haley Moore Foundation to help stop bullying.
So don your Comfy with pride on February 20th, and enjoy living #TheComfyLife to the fullest. Don't forget to tag us at #TheComfy for a chance to win a wearable blanket!
