Lock-n-Load Java

In 2010, Army veteran Carl Churchill launched the Utah-based coffee chain Lock-n-Load Java with his wife Lori. He then partnered with a local coffee roaster, who also happened to be his brother-in-law, to establish an online distribution of the beans, and by 2012 had a projected revenue of well over $120,000. “Supporting veteran-owned businesses really resonates with people,” Churchill told Inc. in November.
