What is Scratch and Grain?
Scratch and Grain gourmet baking kits come in a variety of flavors such as chocolate chip, sugar, oatmeal raisin, and snickerdoodle. Some of the kits are gluten-free. These gourmet cookie kits, which conveniently include all healthy ingredients, only require the user to add eggs and butter to then bake homemade cookies.
Who Owns Scratch and Grain?
Leah Tutin and Taya Geiger, moms from Portland who share a love of baking, both have a background in the business world. Tutin had a career with the Yellow Pages as a top sales representative while Geiger worked as a consultant and securities trader in the retirement plan industry.
Neither Leah Tutin or Taya Geiger intended to create a business when they first realized their own personal need to streamline the process of making homemade cookies in their own kitchens.
They both simply wanted a way to make cookies from scratch using healthy ingredients but realized the effort involved often wasn’t worth the trouble.
Both women, with their entrepreneurial mindsets, got together to discuss finding a way to solve this problem which they knew was not unique to the two of them.
What Happened After Shark Tank Update
Is Scratch and Grain Still in Business?
Scratch and Grain Baking Company started out with Tutin and Geiger having their cookie kits in stores such as Whole Foods. Selling thousands of kits was a huge accomplishment, but difficult as they were doing it all by hand. After pitching their idea on Shark Tank, they were able to automate the process and now sell their product at numerous stores, on Amazon, and on their website.
