Mattress Firm and SleepScore Labs partner to solidify commitment to better sleep and underscore the power data, science and technology can have on our nightly rest

HOUSTON and CARLSBAD, Calif., Feb. 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Mattress Firm, the nation's leading mattress retailer, and SleepScore Labs, the Sleep Science Company behind the world's most comprehensive suite of evidence-based sleep solutions, today announced their groundbreaking long-term partnership to help millions of Americans in their pursuit of better sleep – a key contributor to better health and wellness.

This partnership will create the first integrated sleep improvement program by leveraging insights from SleepScore Labs' unique evidence-based sleep improvement data set spanning more than 70 million hours. Mattress Firm's Sleep Experts™ will utilize SleepScore's technology and expertise to identify the right product for each Mattress Firm consumer and track the real-world experience that actual sleepers have with specific Mattress Firm products, improving the mattress buying experience for consumers.

"We are thrilled to partner with SleepScore Labs, the leader in sleep science, as both organizations share the mission of helping people everywhere sleep better and feel their best every day," said John Eck, President and CEO of Mattress Firm. "By equipping our highly trained Sleep Experts™ with SleepScore's data and technology, we can help customers get the best night's sleep possible. This partnership is one of many strategic investments, including the recent launch of Sleep.com, helping us enhance the total customer experience."

Mattress Firm will also work alongside SleepScore to create a Sleep.com-branded, white label sleep tracking app featuring best-in-class sleep tracking. In addition to the app, the partnership will incorporate all aspects of SleepScore Labs' offering, which includes Innovation R&D services, Validation study services, SleepScore's sleep tracking technologies and suite of digital services, all focused on sleep optimization and improvement.

As part of these collaborative efforts, Mattress Firm will also invest in SleepScore Labs. Mattress Firm joins other SleepScore investors such as ResMed, Pegasus Capital Advisors L.P, Dr. Oz, IFF, and most recently ETP Global, Human Longevity Inc and SleepScore Ventures.

"We are genuinely delighted to partner with Mattress Firm and Sleep.com," said SleepScore Labs CEO Colin Lawlor.

SleepScore Labs' ecosystem of end-to-end sleep services, paired with Mattress Firm's decades-long brand recognition, makes for a bright future to revolutionize the sleep industry together.

More announcements on this new partnership will follow throughout 2021.
