Featured Success Story

Sarah’s Table

Sarah Merryman, mother of two in Sanford, Maine opened her business in June 2022. “Cooking has always been my happy place…being in this kitchen feeds my soul, ” Merryman says as her ovens beep in the background. Sarah’s Table features delicious meals thoughtfully created from family recipes handed down from generation to generation. After having worked for 15 years for the local hospital in patient care, she never thought her hobby would turn into a business. After partnering with Seacoast SCORE, Merryman is making hundreds of meals weekly for customers who enjoy great food without the fuss.
