Which insurance carrier is right for you? Compare insights, savings, and quotes from State Farm and Encompass.
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.
In 1897, the company that would eventually be called Encompass almost a century later began selling personal insurance with the promise of “protection and security.” Even though the company began using the name Encompass in the 1990s, the EncompassOne® Package Policy traces back to the very start in 1897. Today, there are more than 2,400 Encompass independent agents in 39 states. Encompass Insurance is a subsidiary of Allstate Corporation and is one of the largest personal property and casualty insurance brands.
