As part of our ongoing series spotlighting the various businesses we have here in Polk City, we are introducing Cupp Insurance for the month of March. Each business is asked a series of questions so that our community may get to know them a little better. Here are their answers to those questions:
What is the name of your business?
Cupp Insurance, Inc.
What was the date of your opening?
Cupp Insurance was started in 1997 in Urbandale and we opened a location in Polk City in January 2007.
What is your business mission statement?
We don't have a mission statement but over the years we've used the phrase "Our Family Serving Yours". We take great pride in our reputation of offering outstanding service to our clients.
What are you most proud about your business?
We're very proud of the number of clients that refer family and friends to our agency. We feel like this is a reflection of the value our clients receive from our services and products and the way they are treated by our staff.
What sets you apart from other businesses like yours?
We are a family-owned independent insurance agency that provides many company options for our clients. As a Trusted Choice agency we feel like we go above and beyond what many other agencies offer their clients.
Why did you choose Polk City as a place to open your business?
Polk City seemed like a great location to open an office since Rob, my dad, and myself all live in Polk City. Polk City didn't have an insurance agency in town and we felt like the families in Polk City needed to have an option to have local agents who have ties to their community.
What do you like best about Polk City?
Polk City is a growing community but it has still maintained many of its small town values.
I (Jeff) joined the Polk City Chamber of Commerce in 2007 and served on the Board of Directors for four years prior to becoming the Chamber President in 2011. Our membership in the Polk City Chamber of Commerce has allowed us to develop many valuable professional relationships with peers in Polk City and the Greater Des Moines Metro area. We joined the chamber because we wanted to see the Polk City business community grow and we see the chamber as a great way to promote local businesses.
