ABOUT Truffle Shuffle
The first idea for Truffle Shuffle was an app that chefs could order truffles directly from the hunters and we would cut out the greedy and dishonest middlemen. We started in 2018 by sending a friend to Italy and having them ship truffles back to us and we would go directly to the Michelin star restaurants we knew were using Truffles. We would then tell them the stories about the hunters. Through a ridiculous amount of sheer hustle, we were able to break 6 figures in our first 90 days of business.
In 2019, we wanted to launch a product line and on my honeymoon with Sarah, we met a family that had made the most amazing Balinese Salt that I brought home. Once home, we mixed in our truffles and when we tasted it, we knew we were on to something. The first thing I told Tyler was that this was how we were going to make our first million dollars (I was wrong but a little right!). We ended up landing a deal with Whole Foods and we went to work making a product and learning how to do product demos. We were supposed to get a call in the beginning of 2020 whether or not they would put Truffle Shuffle into every Whole Foods store. That call came at the end of February 2020…
In March of 2020, we were so excited!!! We thought we had made it! We went full force making the product by hand and patiently waiting for the email with the purchase orders. Our excitement started to get a little confused with word about something called Covid-19. We told ourselves that as long as restaurants are open, they will continue to order truffles. So we order 20# of the finest black winter truffles and the day they landed, the shelter in place went into effect for California. In a matter of three days every trade show we were going to was canceled. Whole Foods called and canceled their orders and every restaurant we worked with shut down.
