Randy Rides Again!

Randy Taylor, Owner, Escondido Mattress Factory

Time was in these parts when it wasn’t prudent to go out and visit your local mattress store. Quality was not top grade, deliveries were not on time, and the pricing was ridiculous.

“This town needs a proper mattress factory,” the stranger said, as he rode into town.

“Why, I can build folks in these parts mattresses that will compare to the finest mattresses built in Europe. My trusty sidekick, Raul, and I have done this for years. We’re gonna start us up a brand, spanking new mattress factory. Lessee now, what will we call it? I know! We’ll call it “The Mattress Factory!”

That was over 50 years ago.

That slender western hero (western Arkansas) is still here. He’s still slender, too. But he’s a few years older. He’s in his 80’s now. And he still has customers clamoring for his mattresses. They know a good thing when they see it. And sleep on it. Whether cowpoke or King, everyone likes a good night’s rest . . and that’s what you get on a mattress made by The Mattress Factory of Escondido.

photoHe’s seen it all . . . he’s done it all . . he refuses to go the mass mattress manufacture route. They only build one sided mattresses. He lovingly builds you double sided mattress, ensuring you, and your family, of sweet dreams for years. Randy builds several mattresses a day. He has to in order to keep up with demand. He also has a beautiful, large, showroom - all the better to show you the variety of mattresses he offers. He rode in to Escondido on his mighty white stallion way back in 1954 . . .and has earned the respect and continued loyalty of his customers ever since.

Whether it’s a mattress for a crib, a standard size, or antique, he’s up to the task. “My customers keep coming back,” he says. “We’ve made and sold mattresses to the children of some of our customers. They know we care . . . and they know quality when they see it. Or sleep on it.”

Randy and his trusty sidekick, Raul, continue to keep a watchful eye on the market place - making sure that the men, women and children of this region have only the finest of mattresses to sleep on.
