Happy 40th Anniversary, Family Insurance Services!
Celebrating 40 years of commitment to their hometown customers, Family Insurance Services is an independent insurance agency representing numerous insurance companies including Allied (Nationwide), Allstate, AAA, Progressive and more.
Bob Schulte has been a part of the agency since its beginning in 1976 and his sister, Linda Vitous, joined the business shortly after. The brother and sister duo now run the agency together as business partners, along with receptionist Stephanie Braeutigan, who has been part of the staff for more than 20 years, and Bob’s son, Lance Schulte, who joined the team in 2013. True to their business name, “We are family taking care of family”, states Bob. They take pride in serving their community and do all they can to help their clients.
The business moved to its current location on Broad Street near the intersection with Front Street in February 2014. “We really enjoy being located in the heart of the business community”, they commented.
When asked for a memorable event during their 40 years in business, Bob and Linda recalled the tornado of 1997. Although it was a frightening and destructive event, Bob noted that it was good to see the community pull together with neighbors helping each other to trim trees and clear debris from roadways and lawns. “Even now you can see the efforts made by Chesaning to repair the damage from the storm; just drive through Showboat Park and notice the new trees that have been planted!” Bob also commented that he was very pleased with the response of the insurance companies and their pro-active response to the tornado emergency. Family Insurance Services was even able to house an insurance adjuster within their offices to give the insurance company better access to help their clients.
The Chesaning Chamber of Commerce wishes to thank Bob, Linda and their staff for their continued commitment to both the Chamber and the community. Congratulations for 40 successful years in business!
