The History of Banner Mattress

The History of Banner Mattress

Every business has its story. For Banner Mattress, our story started when Ross Scorziell migrated to the United States in 1912. He did not know the language and had little money to survive on. Determined to pursue his dreams, Ross built up a strong work ethic and started Banner Mattress in 1926.

Banner Mattress started out as a wholesale mattress manufacturer that sold handmade, quality mattresses in local shops. By 1964, Ross Scorziell handed his Banner Mattress Company to his son Geno Scorziell. As the new head of business, Geno expanded his father’s company to cater additional products and quality mattresses in Southern California. After five years, Banner Mattress began to sell their mattresses in well-respected, major furniture stores.

By 1979, Banner Mattress set their sights on their first flagship store to be able to sell their quality handmade mattresses at wholesale prices direct to customers. In 1980, their first retail mattress store opened in San Bernardino, California. The store was opened next to our factory so that customers could purchase their newly constructed bed at an affordable price. Since then, we have expanded to open several local mattress store locations.

  • Apple Valley
  • Cathedral City
  • Chino
  • Corona
  • Hemet
  • La Quinta
  • Moreno Valley
  • Murrieta
  • Palm Desert
  • Rancho Cucamonga
  • Redlands
  • Riverside
  • San Bernardino
  • Temecula
  • Victorville

n 1991, Banner Mattress started retailing name brand mattresses like Simmons. By doing so, we began offering more diverse choices for our customers.

In 2003, we added Tempur-Pedic to our mattress stores. Over the years we have continued expanding the name brand mattresses that we carry by adding Sealy, Serta, Stearns & Foster, and more.

As of 2010, we welcomed Lisa Scorziell, company President, as a co-CEO. Under her leadership, our company continues to provide customers a wide array of mattresses at affordable prices and convenient locations. And with our new e-commerce enabled website, customers everywhere can experience the quality of Banner Mattress from the convenience of their home.
