We understand mattress shopping is hard to do and probably not the most fun thing you want to do. That’s why we created a simple process that walks you through to find your perfect mattress. You won’t encounter any high-pressure salespeople and with our kids space that has toys and netflix so parents go ahead and bring the kids along.



Our dad took over the mattress factory in 1984. His goal was always to build a mattress that would feel as comfortable and supportive on day three thousand as it did on day one. His philosophy and approach to building mattresses has always been “better materials, make a better mattress” and  “Less is More” in mattress design.



As a teenager I (Pablo) grew up working in the mattress factory and learning the mattress making trade. However, I had no idea how to run a retail store, so I ended up landing a job at the largest mattress retailer in San Diego, and was able to learn the retail business.  The learning experience was priceless. But I saw a side a side to the mattress industry which shined light on why the mattress industry has  had such a bad reputation, and why people hate mattress shopping so much. There’s a lot of games played within mainstream mattress stores. And the pressure to buy a mattress is almost like walking into a used car lot.                  I HATED IT.



While working at this other mattress store, I ended up purchasing a rather well known and expensive memory foam mattress (who shall remain nameless).  The week we got this new mattress delivered was the same week we had brought our newborn baby home.

I could not begin to tell you how bad the chemical smell was when we opened up the packaging. As new parents we did not want our infant to breathe in these chemicals, so shortly after receiving the mattress and trying to let the mattress air out to no avail, we got rid of it.

After getting rid of that mattress I quit my job and started Mattress Makers. We started Mattress Makers with the goal of providing the best mattress shopping experience EVER, and providing San Diego with the highest quality mattresses at fair prices and without the harmful chemicals of typical mattresses.

La Mesa, CA 91942
Phone: 619.303.5884



Linda has been using thermal imaging for early disease detection for the past 20 years.

Thermal imaging has been able to help in the early detection of inflammatory breast cancer which frequently affects women between the ages of 20 and 40. Thermal imaging can screen for the earliest stages of cancer in ALL women, all age groups, and is often preferred to mammograms since this technology has NO RADIATION and NO BODY CONTACT, and is done in a matter of minutes while you wait. It is currently recognized as one of the earliest methods of screening for breast disease. The American Heart Association suggests thermal imaging as an initial screening for heart disease.

“What I want to share with you now may surprise you or it may make you angry but you’ll thank God for what I have to tell you, because it may very well save your life and the lives of your loved ones.

“The reality is ALL women face the threat of breast cancer. Current statistics show that one-in-eight American women will be diagnosed with the disease in her lifetime.

For over thirty years we have been told that an annual mammography examination is the key to long-term survival from breast cancer. Yet, after thirty years there has been no significant improvement in mortality.”

Thermal imaging, FDA approved in 1982, is an unsurpassed, safe and noninvasive disease-screening technique that can detect signs of tumors up to ten years earlier than is possible using other tests. Inflammation and other conditions can immediately be detected as well such as periodontal disease or infection (that may go unnoticed by x-ray) which is incredibly important to detect early when it comes to heart health and breast health.

About Us

The History of Famous Ramona Water, Inc.

Famous Ramona Water, Inc. began as a plastic manufacturing company named Lormac Plastics in Escondido, California. In 1970, the company began to bottle water from a private well in Ramona, California in order to have an outlet for their one gallon plastic bottles. The name Famous Ramona Water had been used by the source years earlier in a small scale local bottling operation and was adopted by the new operation.

The bottled water portion of the business rapidly grew and was split off as Ramona Bottling, Inc. In 1987 the small package portion of the business was split off from the 5 gallon business as Famous Ramona Water, Inc.

The company is a privately held corporation. Gerry Kolsky and Jay Filer founded the original bottle water business. Gerry Kolsky retired in 1985 and Jay Filer is still active in the business.

Famous Ramona Water bottles in 8 oz . to 2 1/2 gallon containers and has two house brands, “Famous Ramona” and “Sequoia Springs”. They also do extensive contract bottling.

Land & Buildings (Owned)

Our present plant is located on a 1.05 acre parcel. It consists of a 9100 sq. ft. bottling plant and an adjoining 7500 sq. ft. warehouse building and another 26,000 sq. ft. building on an adjacent 1.77 acre parcel. It is connected to our present building by an enclosed ramp. Our total plot of land is 4.82 contiguous acres, leaving 2.0 acres for additional expansion.


Our natural spring water is about 100 ppm of total dissolved solids and comes from a private spring in the mountains East of Ramona. The spring is above the 5,000 ft. level and is about 40 miles from our plant. We have an automatic annual renewable agreement with the owner of the spring, which we have held for over 35 years. It is a very good spring water source, and one of the finest in Southern California.


Bottling Line

We have (4) DIFFERENT BOTTLING LINES: 1 Gallon, 2 ½ Gallon, Liter (8 oz-1.5 liter), and 2 Liter.

  1. 1 Gallon Line

This line is set up in line with a Uniloy 4-head extrusion blow-molding machine. It is set up to run at the blow molding speed of about 30 bottles per minute. At this speed, packing is done by hand into either dairy cases or a bliss style carton made and sealed by an SWF box machine. We can run either a 4-1 gallon or 6-1 gallon Bliss box. We can also run a 3-1 gallon RSC box using a tape case sealer. The one-gallon filler with capper is a Federal 12 valve machine. This is our oldest bottling line, with some of the equipment over 20 years old. We are in the process of starting to replace some of the equipment on this line. We produce a dairy style 1 gallon bottle with a foam-lined screw cap. We can also run a foil-lined screw cap. Labels can be applied to front and back panels using a Labelaire Machine. We aldo run ½ gallon bottles, which we purchase and feed onto the line.

  1. 2 ½ Gallon Line

Our 2 ½ gallon package utilizes the Liqui-Box container and valve. The filler/capper is an almost new Liqui-Box 3-head machine that we run at 15 bottles per minute. The 2 ½ gallon line shares the packing station with the one-gallon line, but we run both lines at the same time while one is being run in boxes and the other in dairy cases.

On the liter line we run 8 oz., 12 oz., 0.5 liter, 1.0 liter, and 1.5 liter, 1 gallon and ½ gallon sizes. We can run either a flat cap or a sports cap, and can install a plastic protective sleeve. We can run either plain paper or pressure sensitive labels. We ae now running 12-pack trays, 6-pack shrink wrapped, or loose packed in boxes. Bottling speed are up to 100 bottles per minute. This line is very versatile and ideal for short runs and quick changeovers. It consists of a McBrady orbit rinser, an 18-valv Fogg filler with a 5-hear capper, a Krones Rotina labeler, a Labelaire pressure sensitive labeler, a Marburg sleeve applicator, a Polypack shrink packager, and a S.V. Dice case sealer. Bottles are loaded and packed by hand. Cartons are erected by hand. We use a Lantech pallet wrapper.

The BWF sports outing (at P2K Gun Range) was awesome! We all had a great time. The guys especially loved the shot gun skeet experience. I know we will all be back for more. I had forgotten how much fun it was to shoot in a safe well organized venue. Love the owner, what a great guy.

I'll just cut to it and say that I am very pleased with his work and the cost was quite reasonable!He was personable and his staff was great! Thanks for making our introduction and also for the great network you have developed in BWF.

I had laminate flooring installed by Cole's Fine Flooring in my office area. The end result was better than I had expected. The installation was done as scheduled. The combination of flooring and baseboard is beautiful. We knew that there would be baseboard but we had not selected any particular one. I was expecting the cheap rubber type you see in so many places. This was wide and substantial and very complimentary to the flooring. We are so pleased with the baseboard we got. The installer cleaned up after himself very well. I am very happy with the product, sales staff and installer. We will soon be getting most of our house carpeted and I will review that after it is done.

Melissa (of Oggi’s Pizza in Liberty Station) and I arranged a wonderful breakfast this morning. It was delicious and I also asked all 25 salespeople to give them a great Yelp.  Thanks, Rebecca, for your help as well.
