JACKSON, MI – It’s all about the burgers - and family - at Baby Bear Burger in Jackson.

The business started out as a way to help feed families during the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, but after continuously setting up a tent on the corner of Greenwood Avenue and First Street, owner Marshawn Goodloe said it was time to transition to a food truck.

“With the food truck we could actually be mobile and move around,” Goodloe said. “It was one of those things that we had to do if we wanted to grow.”

The food truck has been traveling around Jackson, and surrounding areas, since March and has been a hit with the community, Goodloe said. The business is run by Goodloe and his three kids, and they love sharing their love for food with the community, he said.

“I’m a foodie, and just seeing people love your food, passion and what you do is the best part for me,” Goodloe said.

Burgers, all with bear-like names, are the biggest hits, he said. All the beef is local and fresh.

The Goldilocks burger, which comes with lettuce, tomato, cheese and garlic mayo, is popular, as is the Grizzly Burger, which comes with A1 mayo sauce, mushrooms, onion and provolone cheese.

For those who aren’t craving a burger, grilled chicken sandwiches and pulled pork can also be found on the menu. Loaded fries are also popular with customers, and the Finger Lickin’ Chick’n, fries topped with cheese, chicken, bacon and ranch, also are a hit.

Locations, schedules and updates on where to find Baby Bear Burger are posted on its Facebook page each week. More details are available by email at [email protected]

What Happened To Baby's Badass Burgers After Shark Tank?


By Ree Winter/Updated: Sept. 28, 2022 1:34 pm EDT

Baby's Badass Burgers started back in 2009 with one food truck, per the LA Times. Erica Cohen, an experienced restaurateur, and Lori Barbera, an event planner, decided to go into business together as they both shared a passion for burgers (via Baby's Badass Burgers).

The website describes Baby's Badass Burgers as "a playfully unique and entertaining mobile burger concept." It seems the big idea is that "attractive staff" members known as Burger Babes would serve gourmet burgers to customers from a hot pink truck. When the company was set to make its debut, Los Angeles Times contributor Jessica Gelt wondered in an article, "Will a rolling sex-and-meat show sell?" While Gelt described the concept as "unimaginative," the answer to the question posed by the piece was "probably."

Fast-forward about four years, and Baby's Badass Burgers was not only still selling but also bringing its burgers to "Shark Tank" (via Shark Tank Tales). The partners were seeking $250,00 for 30% of the business and dreamed of seeing their food served in all major cities (via Gazette Review).

Were the Sharks hungry for Badass Burgers?

Over the course of its existence, Baby's Badass Burgers has certainly appealed to celebrities. The company's website names big-time actors and entertainers such as Billy Bob Thornton, Sean "P. Diddy" Combs, and Captain America himself, Chris Evans, among the famous figures who have been reeled in by the lure of beef and pink-clad servers. But were the stars of "Shark Tank" looking to buy what Erica Cohen and Lori Barbera were selling – 30% of their company – for $250,000?

During the episode, Shark, Barbara Corcoran asked, "So, I give you $250,000. How do you spend that money?" The partners intended to spend it on their first storefront, believing that the success they had seen with the food truck model would carry over. It was "always the vision" to open stores rather than roll out more trucks. But the Sharks thought this was the wrong move, saying that a quarter-million dollars wouldn't be nearly enough to sustain a brick-and-mortar restaurant.

A skeptical Kevin O'Leary argued, "There's so much risk that you don't have now with your [current] business model. Operating a physical location like that costs hundreds of thousands of dollars. I don't get it. What's the matter with you people? Why aren't you sticking to the trucks?" Ultimately, none of them wanted to invest.

Where is Baby's Badass Burgers now?

According to Shark Tank Blog, Erica Cohen and Lori Barbera also pitched their idea on the show "Restaurant Startup" but were unsuccessful there as well. They were unable to raise the funds for their dream goal of a physical restaurant or they took on the advice of the Sharks and have since opened several more trucks.

Per the Baby's Badass Burgers website, the brand's burgers can be found in LA, San Bernadino, San Diego, Ventura, and Orange County, California. The Ventura truck is listed as "temporarily closed due to Covid-19" with a message that it would reopen in 2021. But this hasn't been updated (via Baby's Badass Burgers). According to a Yelp description posted by Barbera, the badass burgers made their way to New Orleans in 2015, but that location has since closed. For a time, the company had expanded into Houston, Texas, but the last Facebook post for that location was in 2019, and the Shark Tank Blog said it was gone "as of March 2022."

Customers have had things to say about the company since its time on "Shark Tank." Despite some older reviews on Yelp complaining about rude customer service and soggy lettuce, the newer reviews tend to be mostly positive with 4 out of 5 stars. Owner Lori Barbera seems to make it a point to reply to nearly every review.

    Healthy and nutritious burger recipes for your kids

    All hamburgers we offer contain the same serving model. They contain your round bread in the shape of a bun or long loaf and this can be topped with lettuce, tomatoes and cheese. Many more ingredients can be added to a hamburger, for example: onions, pickles or even scrambled eggs, in addition to sauces such as ketchup or mustard. The main content, referred to as a hamburger, will consist of various useful and healthy ingredients, which we list below.

    Tuna or salmon burgers


    • 220 g fresh tuna or fresh salmon
    • Egg
    • Piece of grated ginger (optional)
    • Teaspoon chopped parsley
    • Small piece of garlic, finely chopped
    • Handful of breadcrumbs
    • Sal
    • Splash of olive oil


    The meat must be cut well or cut into very small pieces with a knife, focusing on removing the thorns well. Place in basin and pour out egg, ginger, salt, minced garlic and salt . Mix well and finally add Breadcrumbs to make a more compact hamburger.

    Add a splash of olive oil to the frying pan and set the hamburger to fry. We let it brown well on both sides and, if possible, reduce the heat so that it cooks well inside. We serve according to your taste.

    Chicken burgers


    • 500 g chicken meat
    • 1 large carrot
    • 1 medium bow
    • 60 g breadcrumbs
    • Garlic
    • 1 egg
    • Spoon chopped parsley
    • Sal
    • Splash of olive oil

    We will stuff chicken meat in the processing machine. Put the minced meat in a bowl and add carrots and striped onions . We throw eggs, salt, parsley and minced garlic is very gentle. Finally, we add Breadcrumbs and mix well until a firm but soft dough is formed. Add a little olive oil to the pan and put on fire. We form burgers with our hands and can sprinkle them with breadcrumbs before frying. Cook them over medium heat until golden brown.

    Quinoa Burgers


    • 1 cup raw quinoa
    • 2 cups chicken stock
    • 50 g grated cheddar cheese
    • 1/2 red onion
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
    • Sal
    • Splash of olive oil


    Set to cook quinoa in casserole with a tablespoon of olive oil, water and chicken broth. We can let the water soak into the quinoa after cooking or draining. In the meantime, cut the onion into very small pieces and mix in a bowl: quinoa, onion, cheese, eggs, salt and garlic powder . We form hamburgers and fry them on both sides in a pan with a spray of oil.

    These hamburgers are very healthy for those who can't eat beef and don't like to neglect how they eat this dish. They are ideal for a light dinner without the lack of vitamins and proteins.
