Verlo Mattress Factory Stores of Appleton will unveil its newly built $3.5 million facility on West College Avenue, directly across College from Barnes & Noble, in early May. This major undertaking, which was initiated in the fall, has now reached fruition and offers a more visible site than its prior Lynndale Drive locale. Franchise owner Jake Stanek said the new 14,000-square foot retail store and factory will continue to showcase a wide variety of futons, day beds and memory foam mattresses. This new Grand Chute facility currently hosts the largest showroom floor space in the 62-store national franchise. Stanek has operated the franchise since June 2003 and also owns a store in Oshkosh. “We’re pleased that our volume has doubled since that time. We’re thrilled to introduce our new facility to this area. And it definitely will accommodate our growth more efficiently,” Stanek said. Stanek added that he is happily anticipating his newly acquired toe-to-toe position with big-box competitors like Ashley Furniture and American. “Being situated in a high-volume area is very beneficial to us,” Stanek said. “What’s unique about Verlo is that mattresses are handcrafted to customer’s specifications,” Stanek said. “Our Craftsman works with the customer to find out exactly what his or her comfort preferences are to create the perfect mattress.” About Verlo Mattress Factory Stores Headquartered in Whitewater, Wisconsin, Verlo Mattress Factory Stores is the nation’s largest Craftsman-Direct® mattress retailer, providing specialty sleep products directly to customers.
