TYLER, TX (KLTV) -

One East Texas business man has a lot of new support for his company, thanks to the reality show Shark Tank.

Doug Marshall of Tyler appeared on the reality show, which aired tonight, to pitch his new business Game Face. The business makes and sells full temporary face masks for game and Halloween enthusiast.

Tonight at a watch party at Coyote Sam's in Tyler, Marshall's family and friends gathered to watch Marshall's episode.

Marshall already knew the outcome but tonight his family and friends found out the business sharks on the show offered him a hefty deal in invest in his company.
Marshall said when he found out, he was blown away

"We got it. It just worked out. We were really happy with the outcome. We could have sold out the company, but we feel like there is a lot of potential, more than he was offering. So we took the offer that we did, and were happy we did it," Marshall said.

Two of the sharks offered Marshall $450,000 for 35 percent of his company. Plus, Marshall will work with the business moguls and receive all their business advice and contacts.
