About Hey Buddy Hey Pal:

Hey Buddy Hey Pal, a venture founded by Scott Houdashell and Curtis McGill, has quickly become a renowned brand associated with joy and social impact. Introduced in 2017 with the Eggmazing Egg Decorator, the brand achieved rapid success, selling out within 23 days and securing a significant partnership on Shark Tank with Lori Greiner in 2018. Featured on QVC, The Today Show, and Fox News, Hey Buddy Hey Pal's commercial triumph is coupled with a strong commitment to philanthropy.

The brand's dedication to social responsibility was underscored in 2019 when Hey Buddy Hey Pal donated $50,000 to Make-A-Wish North Texas. McGill & Houdashell have a unique connection to Make-A-Wish North Texas as Curtis' 7 year old nephew received his Wish to go to Disney World in 2018 during his battle with Leukemia. Seeing how much this impacted his own family, Curtis was moved to do more for the cause. The Eggmazing stands not just as a symbol of creativity and camaraderie but also as a beacon of conscientious business practices, leaving a lasting impact on both the industry and the community. Hey Buddy Hey Pal has expanded their line and now offers a wide range of creative fun for the whole family!
