American Freight Furniture & Mattress Store HQ is our October Business Highlight! 

American Freight Furniture and Mattress opened its doors in 1994 in Lima, Ohio. For the past 25 years, American Freight has sold quality furniture and mattresses at everyday low prices while providing excellent customer service. In 2010, the business moved their headquarters to Delaware, Ohio. The company was founded on the belief that everyone should have a place to sit, sleep, and eat.

American Freight partners with industry-leading furniture and mattress manufacturers like Standard Furniture, American Furniture Manufacturer, Corsicana Mattress, Crown Mark, Delta Furniture, Solstice Mattress featuring Stewart & Hamilton, Jamison Mattress national brands, Sealy Mattress, and many more.

They can offer everyday low prices on furniture and mattresses because of their low-overhead business model. They are able purchase quality furniture and mattresses at amazing prices due to their immense buying power. The showroom and warehouse are under one roof so that they can offer same-day pick-up and delivery for all in-stock items. The company takes the savings from the showroom and passes them onto the customer.

There are more than 170 American Freight stores across the U.S. and the company is still growing. Approximately 20 new stores open every year. American Freight employs 85 employees at the corporate office at 680 Sunbury Rd. Delaware, OH 43015. There are 1,420 field employees across all 170+ locations.

Employer Highlights

The Delaware community continues to grow and expand; housing, schools and business. This has helped JEGS attract a great workforce to service its customers and over 1 million packages shipped annually. Delaware has become quite the home for JEGS.  - The Coughlin Family

Let's face it; it's good to feel good about what you're doing and Delaware is all about opportunity to create your own business culture, to be invested in a business community where relationships and people matter, to work within a sophisticated business and government environment. That was a massive upside for us. The value is priceless.   - Mike Berichon, President and CEO of Mediu

Manufacturing entities find it easy to make themselves at home in the City of Delaware.   - Carl Johnson, PPG Plant Manager
