Gingerich Built— High Quality Mattresses Since 1985 B Y M I C H A E L C H AT F I E L D T housands of sleepers have enjoyed a great night's sleep on a Monterey Mattress since Dale Gingerich (aka "Pops Panda") founded the business. Now, his son Brian Gingerich and Vice President Nancy Bell are honoring the patriarch by rebranding the firm as "Gingerich Built." The elder Gingerich was a master craftsman in the Amish tradition in his home state of Iowa before relocating to the Monterey Peninsula. He believed that building a better mattress would lead the world to his door, so he and Brian set out to design and market a line of high-quality beds built to the highest standards, using only the finest materials available. They succeeded by focusing on a family-friendly image and market- ing to the hospitality industry. "Our mattresses are in more than 100 hotels," says Brian Gingerich, "including the Portola Hotel & Spa, the Monterey Plaza Hotel and Hofsas House." Many hotel guests have pur- chased the mattresses for their homes after experiencing them while visiting. As testament to the quality of their products, Neiman Marcus featured a Monterey Mattress in its prestigious 2016 "Fantasy Catalog," giving the Gingerich's brand national exposure. Monterey Mattress' showroom is open by appointment at 26384 Carmel Rancho Lane, Suite 103, Carmel.
