We’re proud to be employee owned

The Original Mattress Factory is proud to be employee owned. All full-time employees who have worked for the company for more than one year are automatically granted shares in our company at no cost to them through a process called Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP).

Why does this matter? The way our business is structured has a big impact on our employees, our customers, and the communities in which we operate.

 

Why ownership matters for our employees

Our business structure is a direct investment in our employees and their futures. When our company profits, our employee-owners profit.

Ownership also gives all of our employees a unique opportunity and voice in how we operate. Employees are informed of major business decisions and given opportunities to weigh in. Their opinions matter.

 

Why employee ownership matters for our customers

Nearly every employee you see and interact with in our stores, factories, and delivery is an owner. That means that each employee takes special care and pride in their jobs. That means every employee works every day to provide even better products and services for our customers.

And our customers can rest assured that their purchase from Original Mattress Factory aligns with their values. Our products aren’t just American made. They’re hand built in your hometown. And your purchase directly impacts the lives of all of our employees.

 

Why employee ownership matters for our communities

Our local approach has been a cornerstone of our business from the very beginning. All of our stores are set up as satellites around the factory locations, so that all mattresses sold in a market are also manufactured in that market. The investment in our employees becomes an investment in the community.

Our company owners aren’t sitting in a high rise in New York or San Francisco. They are your neighbors. They go to your church, coach the little league baseball team, and are in line with you at the local grocery store. So when you shop at The Original Mattress Factory, you can expect to be treated like a neighbor.
