Bottle Breacher is a veteran owned company that “repurposes military equipment into kitchen gadgets, mostly known for its bottle openers.” The company was started by Navy SEAL turned business owner Eli Crane and his wife Jen Crane. Starting as a small shop, the business has now grown into an organization that generates $5 million in sales annually.
The couple appeared on ABC’s “Shark Tank” and pitched the idea, garnering support from Mark Cuban and Kevin O’Leary. This support led to the company expanding, now employing 35 to 40 people.
“Eli says that the inspiration for the products comes from his former boss Chris Kyle, known as the “American Sniper,” and some items even feature the names and faces of fallen soldiers. 20% of the proceeds from items that feature fallen servicemen are donated to veteran’s charities of the families’ choosing.”
