When his refrigerator broke and the cold temperature of Tom Beggins’ beer was in jeopardy, fate intervened and assisted Beggins in creating The Monster Cooler. An innovative product to help keep beverages at their coldest and most enjoyable state, the Monster Cooler was designed to fit like a glove for cans, cups and bottles. The Monster Cooler is lightweight, yet durable, easy to grip, eliminates condensation, but more importantly, insulates beverages, keeping them cool for hours. Monster Coolers are perfect for beach-goers, tailgaters, boaters, those relaxing poolside and/or replenishing during activities.
Jeff Beggins is the Co-Founder/ Managing Member of Endeavor Marketing, LLC, which is launching The Monster Cooler into Bed Bath & Beyond stores while concurrently launching a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign. Jeff and his Uncle Tom Beggins invented The Monster Cooler and co-own 6 trademarks and 6 patents, including international protection for The Monster Cooler.
Jeff is also one of the owners of Century 21 Beggins Enterprises which is a multi-office real estate firm having sold over 20,000 homes in the Greater Tampa Bay area. The firm is the #1 volume selling Century 21 office in the Southeast United States, #1 in Florida, #9 in the USA and #20 in the world.
Jeff received his Bachelor’s (BSBA) and his MBA degree from the University of Florida’s College of Business.
