Verlo History

Where It All Began

Curious about the history of Verlo Mattress®? Where and when we started? How we got our name? Read on and learn what has made Verlo Mattress one of today’s leading mattress brands.

Verna + Lois = Verlo

In 1958, two guys started making mattresses for their furniture store in Illinois. The mattresses were a bigger hit than the furniture, and soon became the focus of their business. Later, when they incorporated in Wisconsin, they renamed their mattress company by combining the first names of their wives. The rest, as they say, is Verlo Mattress® history…

Who We Are Today

Today, Verlo Mattress is owned by Marcus Investments, a Marcus Family company based in Milwaukee, WI. The Marcus Family is also a controlling stakeholder in The Marcus Corporation (NYSE: MCS), which has a portfolio of upscale hotels and resorts nationwide. As world-class hoteliers, the Marcus Family is proud to provide impeccable service and quality.
