About Michael Gropper

After leaving Denver Public Schools as a Special Education teacher for 13 years, Michael, a proud 8-year US Army vet who served as a Food Service Specialist, decided it was time to fulfill his dream of being a vet serving other vets in need. He formed the two businesses at the same time – Culinary Arts Boot Camp for Veterans and Full Battle Rattle Deli – to work hand in hand to both prevent vets from experiencing homelessness in the Denver community and also provide them with a meaningful and fulfilling career.
