2012 Hawaii's Top Employers Profiles
(page 28 of 30)
America’s Mattress Hawaii was founded by President, Chris Eldridge in 1996 as a one person shop and today is Hawaii’s largest specialty sleep shop. Led by Eldridge and Partner and Vice President, Steve Warren, the company has eight locations statewide including five on Oahu, two on the Big Island and one on Maui. America’s Mattress services Molokai, Lanai and Kauai by offering free shipping to these islands. The company recently opened its eighth location at the Pearl Kai shopping center in Peal City. Additionally, America’s Mattress hopes to respond to increased customer demand for its iComfort by Serta line by expanding into the Kapolei market later this year.

Eldridge and Warren both say the key to success has been ensuring that each employee feels they are part of a team so they take pride in what they do. To ensure timely communication and an open sharing of ideas the company has short, daily huddles each morning and longer weekly and monthly planning meetings.
America’s Mattress also believes in taking care of its team members and encourages a healthy lifestyle. The company reimburses team members for pursuits outside of work like gym memberships, cross-fit classes, dance classes and yoga.
To further nurture a team atmosphere the company sets lofty end of the year Celebration goals. Everyone self motivated and constantly improved resulting in the company reaching its highest tier goal for 2011.
To celebrate, all 30 team members spent two days on Maui body surfing, participating in a number of team building activities, spa and golf plus just a bunch of time hanging out enjoying each others’ company. Past success is celebrated and we really get fired up to reach our current 2012 goal.
Last May, America’s Mattress launched the most revolutionary new product line the industry had seen in many years, iComfort by Serta. The success of the iComfort line has been incredible and through 2012 we will continue to expand this offering as well our line of adjustable motion base beds and bedroom related furniture.
In addition to mattresses the company carries futons, sofa beds, bedroom furniture, pillows, mattress protectors and sheets allowing them to be a one stop shop for bedding and related accessories.
