Mattress & Mattresses

How we got started...  It all started on a vacation in Los Angeles in early 1999. I was talking to my future brother-in-law on a road trip on the 405 freeway. I was describing my business plan to him, and he thought it was a great idea. From that moment it was born.
In March of 1999 I installed a business phone line into my apartment and placed an ad in the yellow pages in San Francisco. The ad started running in June. The very first day the ad came out four people called. I was writing orders from my bedroom and customers were picking up out of my garage. We finally found a retail location in October of 1999 and opened on October 15th. My girlfriend (who is now my wife) was graduating college in 1999 and ran the store four days a week; we were closed the other days while she was at school. I was managing the family business full time and supporting us. For the first ten months, her salary was $3 per hour. I put every penny we had into the company. Our first several months were very lean. By February 1st of 2000 we were nearly broke. But with the rent paid for the month, and a month of sales ahead, we pressed on. Today, 12 years later, business is booming.
Foamorder is a place to bring your questions about foam. Our friendly, knowledgeable staff will guide you to the products you need. Our goal is to be a one-stop shop for your foam needs, to carry a large variety of foams for every sector.
We have the friendliest foam web site on the Internet. We invented the on-line custom quote feature based on dimensions, and, regrettably, we didn't try to patent it. (Per our patent attorney, it was possibly a costly mistake.) Here, you can obtain LIVE price quotes for stocked and custom cut foams. Our secure web servers will process your order. Within minutes you will be on your way to receiving foam products without ever leaving your home.
Our foam has been used for a variety of projects, from custom-built sofas to costumes. Most people don't realize how much foam is a part of their everyday lives. You'll find foam in window seats, couches, athletic shoes, gyms, life preservers, and mattresses.
