About MFRM Family of Brands
In 1986, three incredible individuals came together over borrowed pool furniture with an idea – a vision to create an unsurpassed guest experience that would revolutionize the bedding industry. That same year, their vision became a reality with the opening of the first store in Houston, Texas on July 4th and remains true to this day.

Headquartered in Houston, Texas, MFRM Family of Brands (NASDAQ:MFRM), has since transformed to 2000+ store locations and is made up of two of the most unique and successful specialty bedding retailers in the world – Mattress Firm and Sleep Train. Together, we seek to improve lives one relationship at a time – with Integrity, Service and Passion guiding the way.
