York County Charter Bus Company Forced to Pivot During Pandemic Experiences Nationwide Growth of Disinfectant Products and Services
Born out of the pandemic, Bailey Coach announces the launch of its new brand—The Bailey Family of Companies, comprised of Bailey Coach, Bailey’s Zero Hazard, and Bailey Automotive Services.
Bailey Coach is pleased to announce the launch of its new brand, “The Bailey Family of Companies.” For over 88 years, the Bailey Family has concentrated on travel and transportation services, but due to the detrimental effects COVID-19 had on the transportation business, father and daughter duo, Courtney and John Bailey, diversified the business with the expansion of two new ventures in the hopes of keeping their staff gainfully employed. Bailey Automotive Services is a vehicle maintenance shop, and Bailey’s Zero Hazard is a disinfecting service and Master Distributor of sanitizing solution and equipment.
Since Bailey’s business venture beginnings in 1933, each Bailey generation has worked hard to ensure its employees are treated like family. In the midst of the pandemic, Bailey Coach did what it always has, and made changes to its business model to ensure it could continue to take care of its team members.
Bailey Coach has been sanitizing its massive fleet with a non-toxic solution via fogging method since 2017 and when the pandemic hit, they had an idea. With the transportation industry shut down, the Bailey’s began to offer the same disinfecting services to community businesses, families, and friends. This new opportunity created jobs for staff who had been laid off for a short time due to the pandemic.
In May, Kristy Fasano joined the company as one of the owners of Bailey’s Zero Hazard. The majority women owned company now operates 24 hours a day and treats more than 3.2 million square feet of space per week in businesses, municipal offices, manufacturing plants, defense operations, auto dealers and transportation fleets within a two-hour radius of York. After a successful first few months of servicing its community, Bailey’s Zero Hazard began distributing specialty fogging equipment and solution across the nation and are now being used in 17 states.
The Bailey’s did not stop with Bailey’s Zero Hazard. By utilizing their existing garage space, they put their office and mechanical staff to work, and are now offering PA state inspections and emissions, vehicle maintenance, and repair services on any size vehicle through their newly established company, Bailey Automotive Services.
With a pandemic and a pivot, Bailey Family of Companies was born. What was once one company is now three: Bailey Coach, Bailey’s Zero Hazard, and Bailey Automotive Services. They all operate out of the recently renovated 15,500 square foot facility in Spring Grove, PA.
The Bailey family has always had a commitment to community service, and with these two new businesses in full swing, both of their new ventures continue to support the local community. Over a nine-week period from March- May 2020, Bailey Family of Companies donated over 315 hours of time to sanitize 800+ first responder vehicles as a complimentary service to the community. Their automotive staff provided free PA vehicle inspections and emissions to Veteran’s in honor of Veteran’s Day 2020.
With three companies now in operation, the Bailey’s have been able to recall 37 of their 57-person team and as the Bailey Family of Companies continues to grow, they have every intention of bringing back the entire team…and then some. Further, Courtney (third generation Bailey) and John (second generation Bailey) are hopeful that with the continued growth of their transportation, disinfecting, and automotive services they can even better serve their community’s needs during the current pandemic. President John Bailey stated, “he is proud of his family’s heritage and the ability to continue to give back and serve the community with the expansion of the family businesses.”
