Meet the Craftsmen: Tom Rodriguez

What we do here at Comfort Option wouldn't be possible without our employees, the fine men and women who are dedicated to their craft and work day in and day out to bring you the highest quality mattresses, pillows, and foam products at unbeatable prices. We're excited to bring a new series to you called Meet the Craftsmen. With each post, we'll highlight one of our craftsmen and get to know them with short interview.

Today, we'd like introduce you to Tom Rodriguez. He has been an asset to the Comfort Option team from the very beginning and, if you have one of our mattresses, it was almost surely built by his hands. He is an all around team player and even lends a hand on deliveries from time to time. Ladies and gentlemen, meet Tom.

I do a bit of everything around here. I’ve been here a long time and I’m the main guy who puts these mattresses together and makes sure they go out the door as they should.
