There has been a huge movement in the black community to turn their buying power toward black-owned business. One entrepreneur based in St. Louis has found a way to bring those companies right to your doorstep.
In 2016, Oran Taylor founded TransTaylor Logistics, a distribution company offering free, same-day delivery on everyday, household, and personal care products ranging from detergent to alkaline water. His mission is to help black consumers replace everyday products with black-owned products, making buying black a daily experience. The idea came from Taylor discovering a black-owned laundry detergent and telling others in his circle about the product.
After launching his own apparel company and looking to expand, he started approaching different brands to partner with his company to reach more customers.
Some of his popular products include True Laundry Detergent, Alkaline Lyfe water, Garner’s Garden, and Freedom Paper products.
