Taylor Doose is a recurring character on WB drama Gilmore Girls. He is portrayed by Michael Winters.


Taylor is the owner of Doose's Market, and an old-fashioned soda shop. He also runs the town meetings as town selectman[1]. He has a fussy manner and frequently acts as the foil to Luke Danes. He is the most politically powerful person in the small community of Stars Hollow, and much of the humor of the character comes from his overblown self-importance, and his troublesome initiatives as town leader. Taylor is also a member of the Town Beautification Committee. He has a niece, Bonnie, who works at Doose's Market and couldn't care less about her job.


  • Taylor was slowly trying to buy up the town[2] in order to accommodate his desire to control everyone and everything going on in Stars Hollow.
  • Taylor has a sister, who lives in Woodbridge[3].
  • He's religious and doesn't believe in evolution[4].
