The History of Mattress King

Mattress King of Nashville has been independently owned and operated since 1994. With 13 locations in Middle Tennessee, Mattress King has been the largest family owned and operated mattress for the last 25 years.

In 1998, Jerry and Desiree Appleby took over the business. From the beginning, they decided to set Mattress King apart from other retailers by using a hands-on approach to grow the business and measure its success by the overall wellbeing and happiness of its employees and customers. Their mission was simple, to treat everyone like family.

After 20 years and 6 additional stores, Jerry and Desiree happily retired at the end of 2017. They entrusted Nate and Katie Grindle with continuing the legacy, compassion, kindheartedness and generosity of Mattress King.

Moving into the future, Nate looks to further extend the vision set forth by Jerry to expand the Mattress King family. Nate has an extensive background in the bedding industry, starting back in his college years as a sales associate. Upon graduation, he added ten years of expertise working on the wholesale side as a Serta and Simmons bedding representative and sales manager. During this time he worked closely with Mattress King to provide the best products available to customers and built a strong relationship with Jerry and the Mattress King family.
