Taharka Bros. Pint Production Expansion Loan

About This Project

Division: Baltimore Roundtable for Economic Democracy (BRED)
Co-op: Taharka Brothers
Status: Active
Amount: US $66,000.00
Location: Baltimore, United States
Signing date: May 8, 2020
Purchase of additional equipment and office/warehouse upgrades to meet increased demand for ice cream pints


As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the shutdown of businesses across the State of Maryland, Taharka Brothers has pivoted to “Home Delivery” as a means of continuing to function. In the six week period from March 16-April 27, they experienced tremendous sales. The need for additional equipment to expand has been in the works and discussed with BRED before, and they have reached a point where it is necessary to meet demand.

The loan will be used as follows:

$42,000 for a brand new Carpegianni ice cream machine
$22,000 for a new walk in freezer accessible from both their garage and from the factory
