Verlo Mattress Factory Stores, the nation’s largest franchisor of Craftsman-Direct® mattress retail locations, has chosen the Hiebing Group, Madison, as its agency of record. The 62-store franchise organization will kick off 2007 with innovative advertising campaigns developed by its new agency, which has in the past worked with Coca-Cola, Famous Footwear, Nestles, Swiss Colony and Kwik Trip.
