When Donald founded Epic, the goal was simple: craft a better way to help people like you fight back against cavities. Now, 17 years later, we’re living that dream bigger and better than ever before.
Despite all that, we’ve worked hard to make sure we stay true to our “aw shucks” small business roots. We definitely like to know a little something about who we’re in business with, so here’s a little about our team in return.
Donald Bailey - Founder and Chief Smile Officer
Donald has had a passion for peddling tasty treats ever since he was young, as seen from his first venture into the world of business as a 13-year old: selling candy out of his backpack to his fellow junior high students. When Donald’s having a bad day, his favorite thing to do is read through our most recent customer reviews as reminder of the difference our product can create. In addition to his work, Donald loves drone photography and stealing a few minutes to play a round of Golf Clash on his phone.
Monica Bailey - Chief of Staff
Donald’s wife and partner-in-crime Monica is passionate about taking Epic to the next level and loves managing the Epic Team. Monica enjoys making caramel apples and crème brulée, was crowned Mrs. Utah America in 2016, and will never be spotted far from a cold can of Coca-Cola (with fresh lime).
Bennett B. - Official Mascot, Lego Engineer
Bennett became our official mascot a year or two back when we realized his photo was too dang cute not to share. Bennett is enthusiastic, inquisitive, and is always asking when it will be his turn to be "the boss of Epic." When he’s not assembling some new Lego contraption, Bennett loves to kick back and watch an episode of the Wild Kratts.
Carrie C. - Executive Assistant
Carrie supports the executive team and handles customer interactions. Known for her witty repartee and contagious laughter, Carrie keeps the team in high spirits. Carrie would do a lot for Epic, but swimming in an open body of water? That's a hard no.
When she’s not busy doting on Monica or her new golden retriever pup, Finn, she loves spending time with her husband, or reading thrillers to unwind. Carrie recently checked off an eventful box on her bucket list: deliberately plummeting from an airplane several thousand feet in the sky. Just another testament to her adventurous spirit.
Davis B. - Dinosaur Research Specialist, Junior Paper Shredder
Spending countless hours studying dinosaurs and dragons, Davis also makes time in his busy schedule to shred whatever documents need it for the Epic Team. According to his meticulous research, there’s a dangerous crocodile living inside the shredder that must be fed paper frequently.
Hailey K. - Production Manager
As our Production Shift Lead, Hailey oversees the packaging process for Epic Gum & Mints here in our clean room. A lifelong bowler, Hailey’s always looking for opportunities to perfect her skills, both on the production line and at the bowling alley. Hailey dreams of one day owning a whole bunch of pet bunnies.
David P. – Warehouse Manager
Whenever you open a package from Epic, it’s all thanks to David’s careful work in picking and packaging it just for you!
Elle B. - Junior Fresh Fruit Mint Taste Inspector
When she’s not performing her taste-testing duties every Epic Fresh Fruit mint in sight, Elle loves distracting her dad from his work. Other Epic employees have noticed that she’s got Donald wrapped around her finger, but they don’t mind.
Lindsey R. – Supply Chain Manager
After working as a wilderness guide for troubled teens for several years, Lindsey knew that she needed to move on to help an even more unruly crowd… which is why she’s perfect for Epic. While often seen putting her eagle eyes to work ensuring that every Epic product is up to the gold standard before we send them out to the world, in her free time she loves to write and work up a sweat in her weekly Zumba class.
Jordan M. – Quality Assurance Manager
Chocolate and cheese – who doesn’t love those things? Jordan, that’s who. Instead, he loves enjoying the finer things of life, like the salt and vinegar fries at Buffalo Wild Wings and spending his free time outside the office doing things like: snowboarding, going to concerts, and traveling! Like anyone else with refined taste, Jordan knows most of the good music was already made in the 80's.
Wendy R. – Packaging Maestro
Wendy is a staple in our production line with a penchant for Mexican cuisine. While spicy flavors may not be her favorite - given her aversion to cinnamon-flavored Epic gum and Hot Tamales candy - she can't resist the allure of a good Mexican restaurant. Because who wouldn’t want to enjoy a delightful tamale, refreshing agua fresca or a tantalizing sopapilla?
