In July of 1972, our owner (who we jokingly, but respectfully call Mr. Foam) started working for the largest foam fabricator in the United States, American Excelsior. It was the first job he ever liked and therefore he gravitated to every aspect of the foam business. In fact, it was while working for them, he saw Foam Sweet Foam written on one of the foam scrap carts. He thought it was very clever and tucked it away with the idea that if he ever started his own foam business, that would be the name.
Foam Sweet Foam began on March 27, 1982 near Modesto, California.
From 1982 to 1995, Foam Sweet Foam sold foam products to upholstery shops and manufacturers in addition to selling mattresses. In 1996, we posted our first website and began selling mattresses online to the general public. It did not take long to figure out that internet sales were going to be our future.
Over the years, we have worked our way into buying most of our mattress components directly from the manufacturers who make them. That makes Foam Sweet Foam the only stop between the origin of the product and you, the customer. That fact has allowed us to lower our mattress prices by more than 30% in the past 10 years. We sell great products at great prices.
We have steadily grown this business for the past 36 years, selling thousands of mattresses directly to consumers. And Mr. Foam still works each day, managing all aspects of our warehouse.
