By the Wayside Coffee can come to your event, serve your guests
and help our veteran mission partners at the same time. 

You can make a difference. Consider learning more about the today's military experience. Find out what veterans and members of the military community need. Operation Strong Mind can offer insight and training to your organization, church, school and other community groups. 




By the Wayside Coffee truck was created to serve and support members of the military community. Since the beginning, our business plan has included raising money to build a BTW Coffee for their very own. We want to provide an opportunity to a veteran who wants to serve and connect with others while running their own business.

Collecting items for
deployed troops

Through the great efforts of Yellow Ribbon Girls YRG, men and women around the world, in some of the most remote places, receive welcome boxes of goodies, necessities and seasonal greetings. They have personally been serving our family since 2011 when we met them. If you know someone who is deployed please consider donating some of the items that they send out every month (at no cost to the recipient). One box is plenty to share with their unit.

Check out their story and the list of items to bring to the truck →
