About Daily Grind

The Daily Grind is about rising up and facing the day for our family, our loved ones, and most importantly, for ourselves. We all fight a battle within. For some, that battle is to maintain the victories they have already overcome, and for others, the battle can seem insurmountable. No matter what you are facing, know that you are never alone.

Established in 2019, Daily Grind is a proud veteran owned and ran business. All of our carefully handcrafted products are made in Texas and serve as the foundation to creating a personal routine that strengthens character and self-image.

Meet Ryan and Joseph, the dynamic duo behind Daily Grind Beard Company. These 2 gentlemen have had a passion for helping people their entire adult lives. They have turned that passion into a successful business that seeks to help countless men around the world achieve personal greatness and learn the fulfillment of bringing others with them.

Personal greatness begins with personal care. How a man sees himself is the foundation to building the confidence within.

Daily Grind CEO Ryan

Ryan - Veteran Owner

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.

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.  

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.

If you’re new to Daily Grind as a customer, you may have seen Alex’s face at a local market, corporate fundraising event or your own barbershop or salon, toting his briefcase full of balms, oils and creams. As brand ambassador he is responsible for interacting with new and established customers, fulfilling local product deliveries, covering markets and events as well as general community outreach for Daily Grind.

Alex is a local West Texas boy, with a deep pride for his state and country. His 9-5 Grind is in Oilfield Automation where he works hard to bring the West Texas Oil Patch into the 21st century, creating a safer, more efficient future for our Permian Basin. He is an animal lover and has probably asked if he can pet your dog if you’ve seen him at a market. In his free time, Alex enjoys Cooking, Gaming, Cinema and relaxing with friends with a cigar and a well-made Old Fashioned.
