Oran Taylor didn’t go to school to run a logistics company that delivers Black owned products. Today, however, the TransTaylor company offers free, same-day delivery on everyday, household and personal care products: products that happen to be from Black owned companies. From alkaline water to oral products, TransTaylor is helping to shift the buy Black experience from novel and occasional, to everyday and normal.
Oran heard about True Laundry Detergent some years ago and decided to give the brand a try, as a customer. He had an issue with his order so he sent the company a message through social media. When they learned that he was local, the founders of True invited Oran to come over personally. Oran had his own fashion line and his t-shirt started a conversation. The founders of true reasoned that if he was selling clothes, he should also sell detergent to wash them. That was back in 2016 and today, TransTaylor has grown from that single product to 25. TransTaylor’s true appeal, however, is service.
Oran is a native of St. Louis, where he serves customers each day. Oran has become known as the guy that delivers orders the very same day customers place them (provided they order by close of business). On his site, customers will find everyday products and that’s very intentional: Oran is on a mission to help Black consumers replace everyday products with Black owned products, making buying Black a daily experience. Customers appreciate the service and of course, they love the products: True Laundry Detergent, Alkaline Lyfe water, Garner’s Garden and Freedom Paper products, to name a few.
Buying Black shouldn’t be a special event, it should be a lifestyle. Oran Taylor is on a mission to help people make it so, serving the people of St. Louis each day, with everyday products. Visit oran at TransTaylor.com.
