About Sleep Train

Founded in 1985 by Dale Carlsen, Sleep Train is an employee owned company and is the West Coast’s number one mattress retailer and number four nationwide.

Shortly after graduating from California State University Sacramento, Carlsen opened the first Sleep Train store on Folsom Blvd. in Sacramento, California. His philosophy was simple: Treat the customer right and you will earn a customer for life. Eight months later, a second location was opened in Citrus Heights, California. Today, there are over 100 California Sleep Train locations.

Sleep Train Mattress Centers is known for their dedication to the community with the Sleep Train Foster Kids program, as well as their commitment to providing superior service, top brand name selection and a low price guarantee.
