When Doing Jello Shots Is A Great Idea

By Dennis Donahue
Jello is not something I eat on a regular basis.  But when you turn it into a Jello shot, well that is another story!  And the pursuit of making a great Jello shot is the reason one of the simplest inventions to cross my desk as a patent attorney is also one of my favorites.   The Jellinator is brainchild of my client Trish Piazza, who found herself frustrated by the mess involved in filling party-perfect jello shots for a community fund raiser.  So she and her husband Matt put a small valve at the tip of a tube to control the flow.  No one had done it quite that way before.  A problem was solved, and a business was born!  The Jellinator has been successfully selling nationwide online and is now available in stores.  It has also just been nominated for Martha Stewart’s “American Made” contest.  (Check out this recent article about it http://blogs.riverfronttimes.com/gutcheck/2014/09/the_jellinator.php)   The Piazzas are a terrific example of regular people who had more than just a great idea. They had courage to get that patent and work like crazy to get it out there for people (ah, party goers) like you and me to enjoy.  So great to be a part of that!  Congrats!  www.Jellinator.com
