State Farm was founded in 1922 by George Jacob “G.J.” Mecherle, a retired farmer and insurance salesman. The code of conduct for the company has always been “to help people manage the risks of everyday life, recover from the unexpected and realize their dreams.” From the start, the company was branded as being “Like a good neighbor” and for “being there” for all State Farm customers. Fittingly, the State Farm agent in the television commercials is Patrick Minnis, a real State Farm insurance agent from Tempe, AZ. In 1971, Barry Manilow wrote the famous State Farm jingle that cemented the company’s brand as a helpful neighbor and Weezer covered the famous jingle in 2011.
Allied Mutual Automobile Association was formed by Harold Evans in 1929. After years of operating as a standalone brand, Allied Insurance became Nationwide in 1998. Policies, documents, bills and account statements for Allied customers are now featuring the Nationwide name and logo.
