Scratch & Grain Baking on ‘Shark Tank’

Scratch & Grain Baking entered the Shark Tank in Season 6, asking for $150,000 for 20 percent of their company.

Founders and moms Leah Tutin and Taya Geiger pitched their idea for easy-to-use cookie baking kits. All ingredients are measured, labeled, and color coded and packed in a book. Bakers only have to add butter and egg to the ingredients, then mix and bake. The kits yield 9 to 12 big cookies, instead of 36 standard-sized ones. Their sets are unique because all the ingredients are organic and natural.

The Portland-based business struck a deal with Barbara, who gave them $150,000 for a line of credit for 20 percent of the company

On the show, both women, who were neighbors, did get quite emotional. Corcoran told Business Insider about the tears:

I thought they were gonna take a stretcher and haul them off. And they cried so much, I thought for sure it wouldn’t air, and it is airing.

I’m like, geez, how did they edit that one down? I hope they took their 30 minutes of tears and cut it down to like a 10-second clip! But I don’t know how they’re going to do that, because even in their pitch, they’re weeping.

However, all the crying didn’t deter her from striking a deal. “And I bought them. Not because of the tears, but I had to listen between the tears to really get what the heck they were talking about,” she said.
