Not all tailgate products are created equal, and some are a must have, while others are not a necessity. With that said, if you are a tailgater, or know of a tailgater in need of the perfect gift, then there is one product you must have. That product is the Ben-No-Mo, the adjustable-collapsible stand, and you need to get it for your favorite tailgator. Let’s review this product and discuss what makes it awesome.
Features and Pros
One of the best things about the Ben-No-Mo stand is that it can hold coolers; even the heaviest! holds up to 300 pounds, and there is nothing like it on the market. All you have to do is set the stand up and place your favorite cooler on it. If you have a favorite portable grill that you bring with you when you tailgate, then go ahead and put that on the Ben-No-Mo because the grill will fit perfectly on it. Asides from that, you can place trash bags and use it as a trash receptacle for tailgating, and many other uses. Just to reiterate some of the pros:
It is versatile
Perhaps the best thing about the Ben-No-Mo is the durability. It is made of 100% Aluminum and it is built to last, which is exactly what you want in a stand that you use while tailgating.
Let’s not forget to mention that it is affordable.
To sum up the above, other features include:
Who Is It Ideal For
The Ben-No-Mo is ideal for those who don’t want to keep bending over, or for those who expose when they bend over or for those that have a sore back. If you’re out tailgating, the last thing you want to do is to keep bending over to grab something out the cooler or to slouch while you cook on the portable BBQ grill (remember, small grills can fit on the stand) and it is ideal for tailgaters who just want to enhance their experience. And own the coolest cooler stand on the market!

BEN NO MO, an adjustable collapsible stand that recently hit the market, is a result of the common expression, “Necessity is the mother of invention.” And, it was invented and manufactured right here in Florence. BEN NO MO is a light weight, portable, aluminum stand which can hold up to 300 pounds. It can be adjusted to hold small or large items, which makes it handy when tailgating, camping, fishing, gardening or on the beach. No more bending down to reach drinks in the cooler or tools in a toolbox.
Five local partners are involved in the development and manufacturing of this new product. They are long-time friends Jimmy Gregg and Larry Lyerly, along with sons, Jay and Charlie Gregg, and Chad Lyerly. The idea originated with Jimmy about four years ago after his son brought a fixed cooler stand to an outdoor event. “Everyone loved it,” Jimmy recalled, “because no one had to bend down to get drinks out the cooler.” However, at the next event, a different cooler was used and it would not fit on the fixed stand.
Jimmy realized that an adjustable stand would fix that and he began brainstorming about his idea with his golfing buddy Larry, owner of Atlantic Tooling and Fabricating. Around the end of 2012, he brought a rough sketch of his idea to Larry’s son Chad who came up with a viable design. It took about eight months to perfect the final design. The next step was to apply for a patent which they obtained in November of last year.
“We played with this idea for about two and a half years and then it was finally time to take the big jump,” Jimmy commented, explaining that a substantial financial investment was required to get their product manufactured and on the market. They were able to get great support from two local educational sources – Francis Marion University and SiMT, Jimmy said. FMU’s Small Business Institute assisted with marketing analysis.
The Gould Business Incubator on the SiMT campus at Florence-Darlington Technical College provided support and manufacturing space. In fact, BEN NO MO is the first manufacturing business to lease space in the Incubator. “This place is awesome,” commented Gregg. “It is a huge asset for starting up new companies.” All of the partners, along with a few students and friends, are currently involved in assembling the stands. All materials are made in the U.S., Gregg stressed. The aluminum poles are fitted and other parts built at Larry and Chad’s company before coming to the Incubator where the stands are put together.
Jay Gregg started working full time with BEN NO MO last week as marketing and sales representative. They have purposely been low key about their marketing and sales strategy as they gear up the manufacturing process. They began by selling stands to friends and recently introduced them at Merry Marketplace. The response has been great, Jay said, adding they have sold close to 200 stands in the last two months. The stands sell for $65. They are available locally at Block & Vino, at Pawley’s Island Outdoors, or by calling Jay at 843-350-5262, the office at 843-413-3287 or by going to the website www.bennomo.com.
