Veteran-Owned Businesses Featuring Glass City Cafe
The Scuttlebutt | Season 7 Episode 23
Veteran Business Owner Jeremy Mock of Glass City Cafe Jeremy Mock is a Marine Corps veteran and current Navy Reservist with a passion for business.
After his time in the Marine Corps, Jeremy visited his hometown of Jeanette, PA and was struck by how the downtown area had deteriorated.
He decided to help revitalize the town and opened Glass City Café.
Jeremy isn’t alone in his personal mission, according to a Census Bureau report in 2021, veteran-owned businesses made up about 5.9% (337,934) of all businesses, with an estimated $947.7 billion in receipts, approximately 3.9 million employees, and about $177.7 billion in annual payroll.
What’s more valuable than the numbers are veterans are contributing to bridging the military/civilian divide by being present in their communities as well as supporting other veteran-owned businesses to help each other thrive. Glass City Café prides itself on partnering with veteran-owned businesses to provide premier roasted coffee and tea.
They work with local dairies and bakeries to source the freshest and tastiest additions to the coffee they serve and in doing so are helping to revitalize a small town.
Join The Scuttlebutt this week to hear about Jeremy’s success story and how he took the many lessons he learned from the military and uses them to overcome the challenges of owning a business.
