The company had previously received funding from Grand Crossing Capital LLC, who were “inspired by the success of founders Doug Weekes and Lance Collins.” Grand Crossing’s portfolio also includes a manufacturer of fishing boats, a bottled water brand, and a fashion brand.

An SEC filing, dated June 2016, announced their intention to raise $10 million, with a minimum investment for outside investors listed at $100,000.

Other than the LinkedIn announcement by Martin, there has been no social media activity further addressing Outlaw’s closure. It’s closure follows a rocky past few years for the company.


According to BevNET, Outlaw Energy underwent a rebranding in 2018 when they brought in Jesus Delgado-Jenkins as the new CEO and chair. Delgado-Jenkins, who was the executive vice president and chief merchandising officer for 7-eleven, took over for Outlaw founder Doug Weekes, who stayed on as COO.
