Our founder, Mike Bennett, moved his family from Southern California to Nashville, TN in 1993 to start Benefast. He had previously worked for Tomarco and built a strong foundation in selling to commercial drywall and acoustical ceiling contractors. It was a big risk to move into a completely new market and start from scratch. For many years it was a struggle for survival, but our way of doing things has prevailed over time. We place an emphasis on service in an unparalleled way, and truly put the customer first with an “old school” way of doing things. This has granted us long-term (25+ years) relationships with our customers and an opportunity to grow and expand as a company.
Mike and his wife, Tawnee, have been our leaders from the beginning, but now are joined by their two sons, Kellen and Jordan, and twin daughters, Aimee and Amanda. We are blessed with a great team of people beyond our big family, which include Jerry, Trey, and Kevan. We all work hard with the same commitment to help each other and make sure the customer is taken care of on a daily basis.
In the recent years we have grown tremendously and expanded our offering of products to include many more brands. We continue to look for ways to meet our customer’s needs and improve our service.
We are extremely grateful to all of the customers that have been a part of our success and our story.
