Dari De-Lite

When Lucas Horg, a service-disabled Marine veteran wanted to move back to his hometown of Hicksville, Ohio after living in Australia for a number of years, he knew he’d want to purchase a business but was unsure of how to go about it. He reached out to Veteran Business Project for help. The team worked closely with Lucas to help him build the necessary documents, and business and financial plans to access the deal and build a solid case for the financial teams assessing him. Now, life back home has never been sweeter! Please consider supporting VBP as we continue to help Veterans realize their dream of owning their own businesses.

Korner Beehive

From military deployments, to opening a much-needed local coffee shop back home in Villa Grove, Illinois, veterans, and best friends Mary Kite and Beth Floyd Jenkins took their knowledge of “service” to the next level. After deployments and returning home, Mary and Beth understood first-hand the challenges of stepping back into a ‘civilian life'. Additionally, their hometown didn’t have a local coffee shop and they had a plan. They wanted to provide a community space where everyone felt welcome.  With the guidance of VBP, the Korner Beehive launched in July 2021. “When you’re surrounded by other veterans or items that remind you of your service, it can be a comfort,” said Mary. With pictures of local veterans and memorabilia throughout, any new veteran visiting is invited to bring in a photo for their walls. It’s been a great way for everyone in the community to come together and gather with pride.

Chicago Fire Boat Tours

Navy veterans Ray Novak and Erich Totsch had a dream of purchasing and converting the 1930s-era Fred A. Busse firefighting boat that served Chicago for many decades. Their vision was to bring the relic back to life and provide historic tours along the Chicago river and waterfront. With the help of VBP, the two veterans were able to navigate and secure the funding to make the deal happen. The excitement and demand have grown so great that the two veterans are in the process of purchasing a second vessel. Visit Chicago Fireboat Tours for more information.  And, please consider supporting VBP as we continue to help Veterans realize their dream of owning their own businesses.
