A Little History
Kinda Cool… we think
Founded at the turn of the 20th century, Brank Insurance Agency has been serving the local community for more than 100 years.
The founding vision of the H.B Williams family and Glenn P. Brank has been carried on by the Chakales and Aubry families and is now being seen through by current owner, Cat Chakales.
With the boom of the industrial revolution in the late 1800s, the need for insurance became much greater. Predating the invention of the automobile, fire was one of the most devastating losses people faced. When H.B Williams began the agency, the only policies sold were to protect homes.
When Glenn P. Brank purchased the agency from the Williams Family in 1961,he began to offer a variety of policies to reach a larger number of people. The agency grew as the community and the needs of the community grew.
Since 1998, when Pete and Patty Chakales and Paul Aubry reinvigorated the agency, it has grown by leaps and bounds by remaining true to being a Trusted Choice Independent Agency.
We are proud of our deep roots and use the experience of the past to stay committed to the future. We look forward to serving you and your family as your friendly, local insurance experts.
