The Salt Lake City Business Shower will prove to be just as successful, with title sponsor Black Rifle Coffee Company donating $250,000 to fuel the next generation of Veteran Entrepreneurs. Founded in 2014 by former U.S. Army Green Beret Evan Hafer, Black Rifle Coffee Company was built upon the mission to serve coffee and culture to people who love America. Black Rifle Coffee Company stands for more than high-quality coffee. They are a Veteran-founded business operated by principled men and women who honor those who protect, defend, and support our country.
A large part of Black Rifle Coffee Company’s success is due to the outstanding work ethic and discipline of their Veteran employees. The organization is committed to hiring 10,000 Veterans to provide opportunities to the military community that helped them grow. While they are committed to hiring veterans, they are also committed to supporting would-be veteran entrepreneurs, and that’s where Warrior Rising comes in. Warrior Rising’s Mission to help support Veteran Entrepreneurs is directly in line with Black Rifles philanthropic strategy for 2023 and beyond. This partnership represents a force in the Veteran community that both Warrior Rising and Black Rifle Coffee Company can celebrate at the upcoming Salt Lake City Business Shower and Gala.
