The Deland store is located near Stetson University on Highway 17/92. Opened in 1983, it was our third store. Manager Kip Jolly has the responsibility of running both the Deland and Daytona stores, and has been in the paint supply business since 1998.
In a similar vein, Craig Ballew serves as the outside salesperson for Deland and a portion of the Daytona market. He’s been out there since 1982. When expertise in industrial sales is required, they call in Dave Simons, who serves all of our locations with extensive knowledge of specialty coatings, such as CPC, Amercoat and Matthews.
Kip has a support team of 2 counter-persons and 1 driver, but they all do a little of everything, paint mixing included. Give them a call; they will be glad to help.

|Kip currently serves as manager for both the Daytona and Deland stores. In 2013 he was promoted to General Manager over all stores. He is the husband of Melissa Jolly, our controller and accounts payable manager. Born and raised in Hartwell, GA, he received a degree in Industrial Engineering from the Southern College of Technology in 1985. He started with us in 1998 as an inside sales associate in Deland and transferred to Daytona in 1999. He became Daytona manager in 2001 and added Deland in 2009. In addition to that responsibility, Kip has undertaken many special corporate tasks as well; he is our resident computer and communications tech and has become a key personality in the success of Ben’s. In 2003 he received the Ben’s Award for Leadership and in 2012, the Core Value Award. In his spare time he likes to play golf. Kip and Melissa enjoy the blessings of two sons, Ethan and Seth.|
|Craig was born, raised and educated in Daytona Beach. He holds an AS degree in Marketing from Warner Christian Academy. He serves us as an outside salesperson for both the Daytona and Deland markets. Craig has been around awhile and knows the ropes, having joined the Ben’s team in 1982 as a distribution specialist, left for a year and came back working both delivery and counter sales. He moved up to outside sales in the early 1990′s. In 2003, Craig received the Ben’s award for Sales Excellence, and in 2011 the prestigious Ben Kimball Legacy Award. He enjoys the family atmosphere at Ben’s and works hard at keeping his customers happy. In his free time he likes to fish, ride his ATV and work on home projects. Craig is married and has one son, one dog and one cat….one wife too.|
|Carey joined the Ben’s team in Sept. 1994, shortly after having graduated from the local community college. Her dad was a client of our Deland location and since she was jobless at the time, he urged then manager Charlie Parker to give her a try. So she began her career as a distribution specialist and a few years later moved to counter sales. She is also part of a small but unique “club” of married folks at Ben’s, having met her husband there in 2000. In 2006, Carey left the Deland store to take about a year off to have her son, Drake. In 2007 she rejoined the Ben’s team but at our Longwood location, again as a distribution specialist. Then in April 2010 she returned to the team in Deland. Carey enjoys working with the team members and customers that she meets while taking deliveries. In her free time, she enjoys shopping, tennis, Bike Week, and just sitting down with a bag of popcorn and a funny movie. Most importantly, she enjoys the time she gets to spend with Drake.|
