The Mattress Firm story began when a single location in Houston, Texas first opened its doors in 1986. From the very beginning, the company set out to be a different kind of mattress retailer, focused on creating a unique shopping experience for the customer with a large selection of quality, brand name products, competitive pricing, and knowledgeable, well-trained associates. It was a concept that quickly caught on, and as its reputation grew, so did the company; and by 1994 Mattress Firm had added several new locations throughout the state of Texas.
Over the next several years, Mattress Firm grew to new heights, with the addition of corporate owned and franchise owned stores. By 2002, the company owned and operated approximately 250 locations across the United States and was considered the second-largest independent retailer in the country.
One thing that never changed, however, was the company’s approach to providing a uniquely positive experience for its customers; enabling the company to thrive and continue its expansion across the country. As new research emerged showing the link between proper sleep and good health, Mattress Firm responded to the growing demand for specialty mattresses by expanding its product selection to include pressure relieving mattresses from top manufacturer Tempur-Pedic®.
Fast forward to 2014 when Mattress Firm entered into agreement to purchase West Coast sleep retailer, Sleep Train and Chicago based Bedding Experts to propel into the number one slot as America’s largest specialty bedding retailer.
What began with a single location in 1986 has grown to become one of the largest and most successful specialty bedding companies in the world. Approaching 2500 locations across 38 states, and growing, Mattress Firm remains committed to making it easy for Americans to get a good night’s sleep.
