Meet the Epic Team!
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. - Unofficial Mascot, Lego Engineer
Bennett became our unofficial 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.
Preston C. - Production Manager
Preston started at Epic 9 years ago and has been a vital part of the Epic team ever since. When he’s not bulking up his muscle or touring with his metal band, Preston is hard at work leading the production and packaging team to keep up with the ever-growing needs of our customers. Preston’s dream is to one day own a home with its very own dedicated pizza oven.
Victoria H. - Executive Assistant
Supporting the executive team at Epic keeps Victoria on her toes, which is great for toning her calves and keeping her skills sharp. Victoria loves Lord of the Rings and all things Sci-Fi. When she isn't busy being a huge nerd, she's usually fueling up with donuts and steak before training for powerlifting.
Dan D. - Operations Director
Dan’s favorite thing about working for Epic is how much cleaner his teeth have become. Dan is one of those loons that loves hundred-mile bike races through the Utah wilderness, but the last thing you’ll catch him doing is sitting down for a scary movie. As Operations Director, Dan makes sure that everything on the practical, physical end of Epic runs smoothly.
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.
Landon L. - Marketing Director
In addition to being obsessed with getting Epic's message out to the world, Landon is a bit obsessive about pizza. In fact, Landon has aspirations of running his own pizzeria one day, outfitted with a big screen TV to watch his beloved Chicago Bears while enjoying a slice. He apparently likes hot honey on his pizza, and we wonder if that's where he got his nickname "Honey Boy" from... so many questions.
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.
Hailey K. - Production Shift Lead
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.
Hailey B. - Customer Service Wizard
If you've ever called our customer support line, you've probably met Hailey. After diligently working each day to keep orders on track and customers happy, Hailey is one of "those people" who unwinds by watching crime shows on Netflix. In addition to a healthy obsession with Epic's cinnamon gum, Hailey is also bananas for Olive Garden's breadsticks.
Rachel O. – Warehouse Manager
Whenever you open a package from Epic, it’s all thanks to Rachel’s hard work in picking and packaging it just for you! But, Rachel isn’t just world famous for her boxing-up skills, she’s also killer at photography! One of her dreams is to travel internationally, and since Rachel is all about anything pasta, it won’t be a surprise when she and her camera head to Italy!
Savannah F. – Production Team Member
When you open a bottle of spearmint gum, just think about Savannah. She packages them extra nice since it’s her favorite flavor. When she isn’t here working hard to support Epic’s production, Savannah is probably doing something related to water! She dreams of having a well-trained pet shark in an in-home aquarium, could eat sushi 24/7, and she also loves playing water polo! We sense a theme here…
