Coffee roaster that employs veterans plans Pullman restaurant
Mark Doyle, a partner at Veteran Roasters, said it plans a $7.4 million restaurant, coffee roaster and microbrewery. Working with Chicago Neighborhood Initiatives, a nonprofit development firm, his company plans a 16,000-square-foot restaurant with seating for up to 100 people.
It would be built on vacant property at about 750 E. 111th St., west of 111th and Doty Avenue and near the Pullman National Monument Visitor Center. Doyle said the restaurant should create 60 to 70 full-time jobs for veterans.

We know from experience that development that brings needed amenities and jobs to our communities is good for everyone and all parts of the city.”
