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.
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 provides impeccable service and quality with every Hospitality Mattress.
