 Community Coffee Company’s Military Match Program Sees Continued Growth

January 2018, Baton Rouge, LA — With the close of 2017, Community Coffee Company has shipped more than 6.1 million cups of Community® coffee to active-duty military personnel through its Military Match program.

This was accomplished thanks to an on-going partnership with its customers. Customers order 4 bags or boxes of Community® coffee for their friends and family in the United States military, and Community Coffee matches that order. Through its online Military Match program, Community Coffee doubles orders to military personnel for free.

“We developed the Military Match program to show those who are serving our country that we are grateful for their service and sacrifice,” said Jodi Conachen, general manager of communications at Community Coffee Company. “We’re so thankful for the giving customers that have helped us do so.”

More than 2.2 million men and women serve in the U.S. military. By doubling orders for free, Community Coffee Company ensures all servicemen and servicewomen have the opportunity to get a taste of home.

The company then matches the order with four additional bags or boxes, ships the extra four items at its cost and sends a total of eight items plus a signature Military Match mug. The customer supplies the overseas (APO/FPO) or stateside military base address.

Military Match Varieties Offered
