Newsday Alumni Profile: Gary Priore ’10 New York Beard & Co.

Newsday “The business of beards is growing on Long Island” by Daysi Calavia-Robertson daysi.calavia-robertson@newsday.com

Read about Gary Priore ’10 New York Beard & Co. who attended Suffolk County Community College and took classes in Entrepreneurship.

Natural ingredients

Gary Priore 2010.jpgRonkonkoma resident Gary Priore said he hated how greasy most men’s grooming products made his beard look and feel, so earlier this year he set out to make his own.

The 33-year-old, who works at a medical diagnostics company, went online to research “do-it-yourself” beard-balm-making methods and started experimenting with his own formulas.

Then in February he enlisted the help of his cousin, Robert Keil, and opened New York Beard & Co. NY Beard and Co

Priore now sells beard balm in four scents, including Long Island Classic, which contains vanilla and mint, and Uptown Funk, which features notes of patchouli and lemon, on his company website, nybeardco.com and at Long Island farmers’ markets.

Beard-balm tins, a little wider than a quarter, cost $5, and larger ones, about as wide as the palm of a hand, cost $15.

Priore uses a slow cooker and a hot plate to mix and melt ingredients at home and says the process of making one batch, which fills about 150 containers, takes about six hours.

“I don’t use dyes or artificial ingredients, only beeswax, natural butters and essential oils,” he said. Priore recently made a deal with Lunabee Apiary in South Setauket to source beeswax for his balm.

“Being able to offer a product that’s as organic and natural as possible is important to me because I feel that’s our niche, it’s what sets us apart from larger producers,” he said.

Flashback Friday – Suffolk County Community College Business Class visits former Entrepreneurship student and Crazy Crepe Owner

CrazyCrepeLogo113x141November 6, 2016 – Twenty students enrolled in Business Administration BUS 123: Entrepreneurship course on the Ammerman campus, visited the Crazy Crepe restaurant, founded and operated by former Suffolk County Community College student, Kevin Muller.

20171106_180301_1510163920049

Kevin Muller, Crazy Crepe Owner & former Suffolk County Community College student.

The entrepreneurship course focuses on the study of the environment of small business and  the functions and philosophy of entrepreneurs. Topics include problems in initiating and achieving success in new small business, including financing, marketing, management and legal governmental relationships involved. This onsite visit to a local business located minutes away from the Ammerman campus in Selden, NY gave the students the opportunity to have a unique learning experience as part of their business education.

Starting with a brief account of his educational background, Mr. Muller shared the process of selecting, opening and reopening his business. With initial capital funding of $20,000 which he raised through working full –time and living at home, he opened his first yogurt shop at the Selden location, while maintaining his full-time job. Shortly after realizing the business would not be successful, he used a $3,000 line of credit to re-brand the store and offer crepes using a family recipe from his grandmother.  20171106_180338_1510163919744

In addition to talking about raising capital, Mr. Muller explained several of his business practices to the students that brought their course content to life. He spoke walking the neighborhoods, speaking to customers and surveying potential new locations as part of his research process of opening new locations. He frequently uses community connections and offers to host fundraisers and participate in industry events to gain more customer familiarity with the Crazy Crepe brand and test out new products. He meets with the staff at each of his four locations and chooses to lead by example with a hands-on management style. In addition to managing his current businesses, he shared his vision for a new brand and possible franchising opportunities with the students.

Students enrolled in Business Administration BUS 123: Entrepreneurship course

In a post-visit class discussion with Professor Lauren Liburd the students expressed their appreciation of the experience. They were encouraged to see a young entrepreneur from Long Island, whom they could relate to. They recognized his work ethic and found assurance in their ability to be successful entrepreneurs, should they apply the same principles to their business aspirations. This experience gave students a first-hand look into the possibilities of utilizing their business education to further their goals and dreams of success.
