About Daily Grind

Meet Ryan and Joseph, the dynamic duo behind Daily Grind Beard Company in Midland, Texas! These 2 gentlemen have had a passion for beard care since the day they hit puberty, and they've turned that passion into a successful business that has helped countless men around the world maintain a healthy, well groomed, and might I say dangerously intoxicating beard.

Daily Grind is a proud veteran owned and ran business and all of our carefully handcrafted products are made right here in Texas.

The Team

Daily Grind CEO Ryan

Ryan - Assistant to the Regional Manager

Ryan has been working on the art of the beard since 2010.  Only a handful of people have been graced with seeing his naked face in the wild ever since.  Some unsubstantiated claims say while in the fragile shaven state his face was blurry similar to that of Sasquatch sightings.  

This is our US Army veteran owner.  Ryan served in intelligence operations from 2004 - 2008, including a fifteen month tour to Iraq attached to a Ranger unit.  He followed this up with a collective four years in Afghanistan from 2010 - 2014, this time supporting US and coalition forces as a civilian contractor, working two years with the US Marine Corps and two years with the Royal Marines and British Army.

He is an investor in people, a problem solver, a dog rescuer, and what the boys back at Daily Grind HQ call “The Organizer.”  He is often known for attempting physical challenges many would pay not to do.  Ryan’s vision is to positively impact men showing them they are capable of much more than they know. 

Core Values: Courage, Integrity, Hard Work, and Community.  

While not on the Daily Grind Ryan enjoys being outdoors with his girlfriend Stephanie and his rescue turned dog-child, Boomer.  Despite terrible delivery Ryan has an affinity for comedy.  If you had to distill him down to three things it would be: traveler, foodie and movie critic.

Fun Fact: Ryan has more nicknames for his dog than Baskin-Robbins has flavors of ice cream.
