THE STORY:

Dog Tag Bakery, Inc., is an entrepreneurial program focused on education and employment for veterans with disabilities and their spouses.

Here's how our venture works: beginning in the Fall of 2014, Dog Tag Bakery will hire a cohort of wounded veterans and their spouses each year to complete a program that provides both substantive work experience and a tailor made curriculum at the School of Continuing Studies at Georgetown University. During the day, veterans will operate the bakery: learning skills from baking to sales to business management. At the same time, they will pursue a course of study focusing on small business administration and entrepreneurship, providing each student with the skills needed for the successful pursuit of a job or a the foundation to create a small business venture of their own.

The linchpin to our program is our bakery, located right in the heart of Georgetown just past the intersection of M Street and Wisconsin Avenue. This 4,200 square-foot building will provide a retail location for the bakery and café, housing a production/baking area, a training-and-meeting room, and an office space from which to manage the business.
