Sarah Schulz brings Schulzies Bread Pudding, her decadent dessert offering, to Shark Tank episode 508. Schulz likes bread pudding, but she couldn’t find any that met her “standards,” so she set out to make her own. She got recipes from friends and family and got cooking. She describes Schulzies Bread Pudding as “rich and creamy, baked with love, and served chilled for the California heat.” Schulzies is green, too. They use local, sustainable ingredients for their puddings and all their paper products are bio-degradable. They ship their waste to local compost heaps.
Schulz started her business back in the fall of 2010 and sold her wares at farmer’s markets and opened a storefront in Venice Beach that November. She cooks up 108 different flavors with some wild offerings like All-American Bacon Maple, Kiwi-licious, Radical Raspberry, and Tiramisu for You. The Venice shop was so successful, they went north to San Francisco and opened a store there in late 2012. They even did a successful Kickstarter campaign to help open the San Francisco store, raising over $11,000 for equipment purchases and gear for the new shop.
It looks like Schulzies Bread Pudding comes in mason jars (a la Wicked Good Cupcakes). They probably want some Shark help expanding their retail locations.
Schulzies Bread Pudding Tank Recap
Sarah will pitch the panel of five Sharks on his business and its prospects for growth. He’ll need to convince Mark Cuban, Lori Grenier, Kevin O’Leary, Barbara Corcoran, 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 Schulzies Bread Pudding will be available on Shark Tank Blog once this episode airs.
