For a small business to survive and thrive, in the same Town over the course of a century, requires a commitment by many people from various generations to be the very best they can be at their trade. In 2013, Keefe Insurance Agency proudly celebrated our One Hundred Year Anniversary with a profound appreciation for those who came before and those who are here now for their hard work, professionalism and absolute commitment to customer service.
As sole owners of Keefe Insurance since 2007, Bob Keras and Peter Brunelli, have dedicated themselves and their agency staff members to continue to expand the agency, while at the same time paying great attention to the individual needs of all our loyal clientele. We have been fortunate over these many years to have employees who are well versed and educated in the insurance field, and truly care for the people they deal with each day. Our current staff, much like their predecessors, have had long and valued relationships with the agency and our customers.
"After looking back over the last one hundred years and how the Keefe Agency evolved from a small one man operation to the comprehensive and modern independent insurance agency of today, we realize that there is another very important aspect to our survival and success: OUR CUSTOMERS. The agency has been a member of the downtown Franklin community since there were horse and buggies tied up on Main St. and the trolley to Lake Pearl whizzed by at 5 mph. Although the world and our community have changed dramatically since 1913, our customers’ basic need to protect their homes, their businesses, their vehicles and their lives has not. Their insurance concerns are ours as well, and they will continue to be so. "
