Jonah White, co-owner of Billy Bob Teeth, tells a great story about how he co-founded the Company. While in college, he was attending a football game in Missouri and met a buddy wearing a set of Billy Bob styled teeth. Turns out his buddy and later college roommate, Richard Bailey, was in dental school and had made them as a joke in denture class. Two weeks later, they launched the Billy Bob Teeth Corporation.
So how is business going for Jonah and Richard? During their first year in business they reached $60,000 in sales. Last year, their total sales topped $40 million. When asked who are their best customers, Jonah claims used car salesmen and the DEA (used in undercover drug stings).
On a side note, Richard Bailey finished dental school and is now Dr. Richard Bailey, the dentist.
