GUNTERSVILLE, Ala. — The Upton Group announced today that it has entered into partnership with Acrisure, a top-ten global insurance broker. The partnership will enable The Upton Group to build upon a tradition of providing clients with personalized service in all types of franchise businesses with a special emphasis in pizza and food courier delivery insurance and risk management.
Acrisure is the industry’s fastest-growing insurance broker, delivering high-quality insurance and risk management services and solutions through a global network of Agency Partners. As a majority employee-owned private company, the Acrisure model is fundamentally different. Agency Partners maintain autonomy, keep decisions at the customer level, and are offered tools and resources to accelerate growth.
Jason Upton said, “I am excited to join the Acrisure network. Our mission statement is the golden rule “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” The Acrisure model allows us to continue to operate as we always have and always will. This partnership enhances our ability to provide additional options to our clients and prospects going forward while maintaining our culture and way of conducting business.”
Upton continued, “It all started the day I went to work for Domino’s Pizza as a 16-year-old kid. I am grateful to all the people who have helped me along the way. My family and business mentors, my team members and our clients. In just under 10 years, we did what many said we never could do. We are not only a national agency and one of the top producers in pizza delivery insurance we caught the attention of one of the top 10 global brokers who saw our unique expertise and insight into a traditionally tough class of business. From $3.35 per hour making pizzas to closing a deal with one of the top 10 brokers in the world is the all American dream come true.”
“Acrisure has ascended to a top-ten global broker on a simple yet powerful principle: partnerships create value for clients, and the best partnerships create limitless growth opportunities,” said Greg Williams, Co-Founder, President and CEO of Acrisure. “We are excited to welcome the team at The Upton Group to the Acrisure network, and look to build upon their impressive track record.”
