Long Table

long tableSamuel Taylor hopes the Sharks bite on Long Table, his heirloom grain flour based pancake and waffle mixes, in Shark Tank episode 1410. Taylor started the business in 2015 after working in Shakespearean theater, teaching and writing for a number of years. He still works part time with The Back Room Shakespeare Project, a collection of Shakespearean actors who do one man (or woman) Shakespeare plays in bars.

Taylor calls the business Long Table as a metaphor for the generations that sit at a table for a meal. He wants to hand down a better world to the younger generations they way people hand down food at a table. As he says on his LinkedIn profile, his business takes “the long view – for your health, the planet & for local economies.” He’s doing this by using sustainably sourced, heirloom grains in his pancake and waffle mixes. The mixes include sorghum flour, blue corn flour and popcorn flour based pancakes. There’s also a gluten-free option.

Taylor sources his grains through The Artisan Grain Collaborative, a network of farmers in the upper mid-west that grow heirloom grains and promote awareness of biodiversity in the growing of them. As for Taylor’s pancakes, a 16 ounce packet will run you $11.25. If you bundle the packets together, the cost per packet goes down a bit. He also sells several kinds of real maple syrup and does several “short-run” packets of different heirloom grains. If you sign up for his newsletter, you can get 15% off your first order. Taylor likely wants a Shark to help with marketing and inventory. Will a Shark like these pancakes?

A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but he’ll need to show them HE is capable of running the company to “Shark standards.” A full pitch re-cap on Long Table will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
