American Furniture Warehouse (AFW) is a privately held furniture retailer headquartered in Englewood, Colorado. It was founded in 1975 by entrepreneur Jacob Jabs in a former American Furniture Co. store location at 58th Avenue and Bannock in Denver, Colorado. AFW has 14 locations, 12 in Colorado and two in Arizona, with its latest opening in the Phoenix suburb of Glendale on Saturday, August 23, 2014. AFW is well known in the Front Range area as Colorado's largest furniture retailer and for its frequent advertisements featuring founder Jake Jabs and animals. His local fame is such that Jabs was featured, along with Ron Zappolo, Tom Shane, and Jay Cutler, in the cartoon South Park season 11 episode entitled 'Guitar Queer-o' as a 'celebrity'. Jabs is known as a major Republican donor and a financial backer of American Tradition Partnership, a group working to overturn Montana's campaign financial laws.
