About Our Foundation

Joe and Stephanie Dodd knew from the beginning of their new venture- King of the Coop, that they wanted to give back to the community. It is a deep seeded value that Joe has carried with him for his entire life. That is why that it is no surprise that barely 2 years in, the successful entrepreneur decided to gather a group of caring and dedicated individuals together to form The Coop Cares Foundation.
