Select Comfort was founded in 1987 in Plymouth, Minnesota, by Bob and JoAnn Walker. The company sells unique adjustable air mattresses and bedding.
As of 2011, the company has 23 patents for their product. Unlike other mattress manufacturers, Select Comfort sells only through their own stores, direct marketing, or via their eCommerce website. The company is best known for their Sleep Number bed, which uses an adjustable air mattress so customers can control the firmness of the mattress. A memory foam topped Sleep Number bed was recently introduced.
There are currently 477 locations in the US and has more than 3,098 full time employees. The company is publicly traded on the NASDAQ under the ticker symbol: SCSS. A competitor, Comfortaire, was acquired by Select Comfort in 2013.
