Patrick Turner comes from the world of beds. His father is the founder of FloBeds, an independent mattress company based in the small coastal town of Fort Bragg, California. Her father spent 30 years as a firefighter, putting his life on the line to help save others. He is also a smart businessman and taught Bianca about picking smart investments.
When Bianca and Patrick fell in love, they talked about what kind of legacy they wanted to leave behind in the world. They began to discuss how they could follow in their fathers’ footsteps—leading lives that merged business and service. Patrick had developed the idea of a secure mattress topper for college students in a marketing class while he was still in college himself. Bianca suggested taking his original idea and giving it more meaning. Together, they left their corporate jobs and developed a business model that would be equal parts great product and great cause.
In 2017 Bianca and Parick sold Bed Bandits to Patricks father. They were thrilled that the business stayed in the family. Bed Bandits is now run by the amazing staff at FloBeds. Please contact them with any questions!
