CO-OWNERS PEGGY AND JEREMY HAVE OWNED RKC SLEEP SHOP FOR 23 YEARS. Peggy and Jeremy began the business on November 4th, 1995 in their Beaverton apartment. They sold beds out of their apt and house for the next 14 years till they got their first store on King Rd in 2009. While it was a small 650 sq ft store they worked hard and made it a success. In October of 2016 they moved into their current location which is a 3100 sq ft warehouse, where they have more than 50 products on display. Peggy and Jeremy have lived in Milwaukie for 20 years and have raised 8 children. In 2017 we celebrated their 15th wedding anniversary.

Son: FRANCISCO came to our family 11 years ago, and was immediately introduced to the mattress business, one of his first memories on the business is pushing a truck up hill in the snow, no chance we were getting out of that one.
