Origin Story

The idea for the Manly Man Company® came to Greg Murray after a simple conversation with his wife Jacquie, for whom he had recently bought a bouquet of flowers: Why isn’t there a gift for men that’s equivalent to flowers? Yes, you can buy men flowers, but the practice isn't what you might call commonplace. The couple speculated that a bouquet of beef jerky might be the perfect stand-in. Soon after his wife surprised Greg with the very first iteration of what is now called “Man Bouquets”— sticks and sheets of jerky carved into the shape of flowers and roses that are presented inside a pint glass or beer mug “vase”.

Veteran-Owned Business

After the Murray’s discovered man bouquets were the perfect solution for the dilemma of what to get “him” for Valentine’s Day, during their first week in operation, Greg called a high school classmate with him he enlisted in the Marine Corps— Ben Wynkoop, to join Greg and Jacquie as the third Co-Founder, to efficiently place their unique and intriguing creations in front of as many people as possible, online.

What We Offer

Approximately one year after Manly Man beef jerky bouquets were born, stemless maple candied bacon jerky rose bouquets were launched. Almost one year after their second major release with bacon roses, they launched a non-manly brand called Awesome Gifts Co.™, in response to overwhelming requests for bouquets anyone can be gifted. To date, The Manly Man Company boasts an ever-growing line of unique, custom and curated gifts that include:
