The Profit - JD Custom Designs

Tonight on The Profit, Marcus Lemonis is in Orange County, California hoping to make a deal with JD Custom Designs. JD Custom Designs is a company that specializes in retail displays.   The owner Jeff can't let go of control, which slows the process, limits creativity and negatively impacts the company.  Marcus must persuade him to let go of some of the control and help his wife Aimee come into her own.

Let's take a look at some information related to JD Custom Designs as well as what kind of deal was made on the show


News and Links Related To The Company:
  • Here is the JD Custom Designs website, which at the moment could use some work.
  • Here is the JD Custom Designs Facebook page which before the show airs only has 30 likes.
  • The About section of the website states, "JD Custom Design, Inc. is a designer and fabricator/manufacturer of quality Point Of Purchase, Visual Merchandising, & Marketing and Advertising Displays.

  • JD Custom Designs used to sell makeup organizers, but sold that off to another company as it was exhausting their resources. (Link)


The Deal From The Episode Plus Post-Show Updates (this will be updated continually):

  • The Deal - $300,000 for 50% of the business.  The money would be used to pay off credit cards, get equipment working, improve the work environment, and put money in the bank.
