Mee-Ma’s Louisiana Gumbo Brick

Louisiana Gumbo Brick

Carol Foster pitches the Sharks on her frozen gumbo product called Mee-Ma’s Louisiana Gumbo Brick in Shark Tank episode 421. The single mom and former truck driver is a re-located Louisiana native who broke out an old family recipe for a “N’Awlins” favorite and started selling it online in 2007 and serving it in her restaurant in 2009. Unfortunately, the ceiling of the restaurant collapsed in October, 2010 after heavy rains, buy Carol says it was “God lettin’ me know it’s time to move on and concentrate on the Gumbo Brick.” Basically, the gumbo brick is a frozen block of roux base for making authentic Louisiana style gumbo; all you need to do is add sausage and shrimp (and a few more spices if you want some extra ZING). Each gumbo brick “accepts” 3-4 pounds of meat and serves 6-8 people. Mee-Ma’s Louisiana Gumbo Brick is available online from their website and at several Los Angeles area independent markets.

Mee-Ma’s Louisiana Gumbo Brick Shark Tank Recap

Carol pitches the panel of five Sharks on her business and its prospects for growth. She’ll need to convince Mark Cuban, Daymond John, Kevin O’Leary, Lori Grenier, and Robert Herjavec that the company is worthy of a Shark investment. A good business plan, good financials, and sales data will impress the Sharks, but she’ll need to show them SHE is capable of running the company to “Shark standards.” A full pitch re-cap on  Mee-Ma’s Louisiana Gumbo Brick will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.

  10. I saw Carol on Shark Tank last night and was delighted to hear her testimony. She sounds like an amazing woman with enough dedication, drive and now support from THE SHARKS to make her dream a reality. I am so happy that she did not give up and loose sight of the blessing God has for her. Carol, continue to trust God with your life totally and I guarantee He will direct your path. A great big THANK YOU to Mr. Wonderful (Mr. O’Leary) and Mrs. Lori Grenier for their support. Mr Wonderful, you are redeemed.
    Carol, please remain humble and always give God the praise for what He and only He has done.
    Thank you for allowing me to voice my comment. I appreciate it.

  11. Looks like meemas is one of the many shark tank deals that never went through. According to her twitter they threw her under the bus. Looks like they do this a lot. After due diligence many deals are never finalized. But they knew her story before they made the deal.
