Tuft & Needle is a bootstrapped, Phoenix-based company that pioneered the disruption of the mattress industry. Founded in 2012 by John-Thomas Marino, 31, and Daehee Park, 28, T&N is leading the revolution against unfair mattress markups, commission­-based sales models, and institutionalized greed by creating an exceptional, honestly-priced product. Having bypassed the option to raise outside capital, Tuft & Needle has nurtured the co­-founders’ personal investment of $6,000 into month-over-month profitability, outstanding customer satisfaction reviews, and remarkable growth.
