I run a driving company called "The Smiling Beard". The beard is part of the persona and expected in the company.

I highly doubt it. Even when the Navy did allow facial hair it had to be close cropped and within regulation, which yours is not even close.

No, you'll have to shave for drill. No exceptions.

There are exceptions PV2. I've worked with Navy Reservists that were also undercover law enforcement and they would get a waiver from their specific unit, authorizing them to not shave and also wear civilian clothing on drill weekends.

As far as for a trucking company, again, that would be up to the specific command.

No, of course not. Just like the beard is " part of the persona and expected in the company" for your private business, being clean shaven is a regulation and expected in the military.
