Welcome to the online home of the Military Resale Small Business Coalition, where we celebrate the vital role of small businesses within the $20 billion Military Resale Channel. Here, we spotlight how these enterprises fuel growth and innovation within the military community, fostering economic prosperity in local areas.

While each military small business may seem like a small component, their collective impact is immense, accounting for one-third of the total sales revenue and thousands of jobs in the channel.
