Darryl Gaddis, owner of Noah’s Ark Business Group and Jaws Jumbo Burgers, announced that he’s making Jaws an veterans-owned-and-operated concept, an idea he will eventually take to gas stations, supermarkets, and food manufacturing.
“It breaks my heart to read about veterans struggling to find jobs because employers worry about redeployment and mental health issues, ” says Gaddis. “It’s time for a new idea, and I call it a cooperative corporation, for the first time, veterans get a chance to own a piece of the pie. Not the stock, not dividends—they actually own it .”
Noah’s Ark Business Group allows veterans to go in on stores together, paying $1,200 to join and $150 per month as dues. The collectives use that initial money as leverage with banks and for start-up costs. The veterans then own 30 percent of the stores and share 30 percent of the profits; the other 70 percent is owned by Noah’s Ark.
“When you leverage that money,” Gaddis says. “We can open restaurants for as little as $75,000 in our market with used [locations] fully equipped because they’re just going out of business.” Gaddis says the goal is to turn Jaws, which has one location open, into a nationwide concept, with the goal set at opening 700 units.
He says Noah’s Ark will then take the veteran-owned-and-operated model to other industries, like gas stations, supermarkets and manufacture foods without cancer-causing additives such as MSG (Monosodium Glutamate), soy protein, and other genetically modified organisms. Glass bottled soft drinks without cancer-causing aspartame and high fructose corn syrup are also on the agenda. Jaws currently sells Alkaline Ionized glass bottled water that has been filtered to remove the arsenic, lead, chlorine, mercury, and fluoride that is currently in tap water.
“We know that we can take this concept nationwide. We Americans owe our military everything. They fight and die for us to be the spoiled, ungrateful, selfish nation that we have become ,” says Gaddis. All of Noah’s Ark’s work is in an effort to stop big-business greed and invigorate American innovation.
Gaddis is seeking 800-2,000 veterans who are willing to help build a corporation where veterans will not have to come back home and beg for anything and he will to speak to any veteran organization.
