Badcock Home Furnishings started in 1905, founded by English immigrant Henry Stanhope Badcock. Establishing his furniture store in Mulberry, FL, he ran the storefront for fifteen years until his son, Wogan Badcock, purchased the store in 1920.   Though the 20’s were successful, and the business grew, the great depression hit Badcock Furniture and made selling their furniture difficult.  Rather than stay stuck with excess inventory, Badcock put leasing furniture on consignment at various types of stores throughout Florida and in return shared a percent of the profit of the consignment with the cosigner.  Badcock Furniture also used route salespeople to extend their reach, sell to customers’ furniture on credit and collect installment accounts.  Through this beginning, Badcock established home furnishing centers.  Their credit program was unique for its time and a forerunner of an established lease to own furniture transaction and furniture credit.

The third generation of the family to take on the Badcock mantle, Wogan Stanhope Badcock Jr., took over when Wogan Badcock Sr. retired in 1963. Not to be outdone by his father, Wogan Badcock Jr. presided over Badcock Furniture’s growth, establishing stores outside of Florida for the first time in 1969. By 1976 he’d established over 150 Badcock Home Furnishing Centers, then in the 80’s expanded to 175 stores.

Growth continued for Badcock Furniture, and in 1999 they revamped their image to the Badcock Home Furniture & More they’re known by to this day.  Today there is over 300 Badcock Furniture & More stores in eight states.  In 2004, Badcock Furniture becomes recognized as a centennial retailer by then Florida governor Jeb Bush.
