With our roots in Houston, the Mattress Firm team is thrilled to kick off the New Year with a celebration: starting today, we’re partnering with our hometown team, the Houston Astros, for their Championship Trophy Tour. The tour officially started yesterday morning at Houston City Hall, where Mattress Firm President and CEO Ken Murphy was joined by Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, Astros Owner and Chairman Jim Crane, and Astros President of Business Operations Reid Ryan.
For Astros fans, this tour is an opportunity to relive the magic of the Astros 2017 World Series victory and take a photo with the Commissioner’s Trophy.
“Mattress Firm is thrilled to support the Astros Championship Trophy Tour and bring the excitement of our first World Championship to the fans,” said Ken. “We look forward to seeing Astros fans throughout our home region celebrate this historic achievement with the Commissioner’s Trophy.”
Last night, we welcomed many of our neighbors and Houstonians to the first Trophy Tour stop at a Mattress Firm store in Meyerland. Weren’t able to make it last night? Don’t sweat it — the Astros Championship Trophy Tour will also coincide with Astros FanFest on Saturday, Jan. 13 at Minute Maid Park, along with 100 other stops along its route throughout Texas and the surrounding areas in 2018.

This list will be continuously updated throughout the year as more tour dates and locations are confirmed.

As senior vice president of communications for Mattress Firm and mother to two beautiful children, Sunni Goodman shares her thoughts here on The Daily Doze on all things sleep and parenting, especially the disconnect between the two.
Mattress Firm is both literally and figuratively a family for Sunni, having worked alongside her sister who recruited her to work for Mattress Firm in 2007, and her husband who she met her first day on the job.
In addition to her love for chocolate and dancing, Sunni’s heart lies in sharing the Mattress Firm story. She provides strategic direction on Mattress Firm’s internal and external communications plans and lends her passion for serving her community to the Ticket to Dream Foundation, which supports the Mattress Firm Foster Kids program, and raises funds and awareness for pancreatic cancer. In 2010, Sunni received the company’s Growth Award, which recognizes individuals who have lead efforts to advance sustainable and profitable growth in the company, and have developed and evolved personally and professionally.
She is a proud alumna of Stephen F. Austin State University, where she was a setter for the Ladyjacks volleyball team. Sunni lives in Ft. Worth with her husband Jason, son Ruxin and daughter Remy.
Best Night’s Sleep: While Sunni escapes every night to her dreamy adjustable base bed – complete with massage function – when she has the chance to take a nap, you can find her on her creaky, lumpy couch. And if you ask her the key to having sweet dreams, she’ll tell you it’s hearing “I love you,” from Jason, Ruxin and Remy before drifting off to sleep.
