 Community Coffee Company Military Match Program Sees Continued Growth

Baton Rouge, La – With the close of 2015, Community Coffee Company reached another new milestone, having shipped more than 4.2 million cups of Community® coffee to active-duty military personnel through its Military Match program.

This was accomplished through an on-going, rewarding partnership with its customers. Through the online Military Match program, Community Coffee doubles orders to military personnel for free.

“In addition to the 4.2 million cups of rich, smooth Community® coffee, we started including personal, hand-written notes from our employees and other customers in the Military Match gift box so those who are serving our country know that we are grateful for their service and sacrifice,” said Jodi Conachen, Community Coffee Company spokesperson. 

More than 2.2 million men and women serve in the U.S. military.  That gives Community Coffee 2.2 million reasons  to support U.S. military personnel by doubling orders for free to ensure servicemen and servicewomen get a cup of home. The customer buys four bags or boxes of coffee, and Community Coffee adds four more for free.

This spring, Community Coffee is updating the look of its Military Match box. The goal of the update is to ensure that military heroes feel like they received a gift. The new presentation focuses on patriotic themes.
