The Comfy®: The Best-Selling Wearable Blanket On The Planet
From a moment of inspiration, to the TV screens of Shark Tank, and now – to millions of satisfied customers across the globe, The Comfy® has now named February 20th as ‘National Comfy Day.’
And whether you’re in London, Toronto or Los Angeles, everyone and anyone can celebrate, anywhere.
National Comfy Day isn’t just a day to get dressed into one’s original ultra-cozy, and oversized wearable blanket. It’s also a day to slow down, to let the worries of the world disappear, and to savor the often under-utilised feeling of well-being that only getting wrapped up in a giant hug can bring.
For the Founders, 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 stores, to millions of happy customers), came from a challenging time, with their first prototype landing in May 2017.
“I needed comfort, and The Comfy® became something to focus on that wouldn’t just make me feel warm and safe, but others too,” explained Michael Speciale.
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, front-line workers, and the homeless, and are currently partnered with the Haley Moore Foundation to help stop bullying.
Since then, The Comfy has been featured on The Today Show, Good Morning America, People, CNN, Yahoo, BuzzFeed, Business Insider, Inc., Scary Mommy, and more.
