Malouf Celebrates 15 Years
Utah-based bedding accessories producer Malouf celebrated its 15-year anniversary on Aug. 22, marking the company’s growth.
Founded by newly married college students Sam and Kacie Malouf in 2003, Malouf has experienced substantial growth and fostered strong partnerships with over 10,000 specialty sleep stores nationwide.
“Early in our marriage, Kacie and I went sheet shopping and were surprised at the cost of sheets that really weren’t that nice,” said Sam Malouf, CEO. “That experience is what sparked our interest in producing high-quality bedding at an affordable price.”
Today, Malouf has more than 300 employees and distribution centers totaling 3.5 million square feet in Utah, Ohio, N.C. and Texas.
“Our success comes from our people,” Malouf said. “After hiring our first full-time employee in 2010, we saw what new and diverse ideas could bring to the company. Today, we continue to grow and improve thanks to the contribution of our people.”
The company credits its friendly sales staff, diverse product offering, in-house creative teams, fast shipping and excellent customer service for its appeal to local retailers as well as nationally-recognized department stores.
“We want to enhance and build on what we are already doing—reach higher heights,” said Malouf. “We are working to increase brand recognition among sleep retailers and end consumers.”
The company also plans to continue promoting the Malouf Foundation and its flagship cause to fight child sex trafficking.
Established in 2016, the Malouf Foundation has raised more than $300,000 to rescue and support child survivors. “We have seen an amazing increase in awareness and involvement within the last year,” Malouf said. “Our industry partners have become powerful advocates in this cause to save children trapped in the sexual exploitation cycle.”
