WILLIAMS, Ariz. - An Allstate insurance agency recently opened for business in Williams, providing all different types of insurance.
Craig and Alyson Fritsinger opened the 4 C'sons Agency on March 3. The agency does home, auto, commercial business, life, health, and property and casualty insurance as well as annuities.
"We do everything, the full gamut," Craig said. "There's not one thing we won't do."
Craig and Alyson have had their insurance licenses since 1986 when they helped Craig's brother open up an insurance agency.
"I never wanted to take the test again," Craig said. "So I renewed it and renewed it and renewed it."
About three years ago, Allstate approached Craig about working as an agent in Scottsdale. Craig told the company he wanted to stay in Williams, but since the company already had five agents in Flagstaff it wasn't possible at the time.
After one of the Flagstaff agents retired, Allstate offered Craig the opportunity to open the agency in Williams. Craig completed about 12 weeks of training in Chicago and Tempe before opening the agency. Now that the business has been up and running for a few months, Craig is enjoying working in the insurance industry.
"We just absolutely love it," he said. "We love the interaction."
Besides Craig and Alyson, the agency has two other agents and a financial specialist whose focuses are health, life and annuities.
The 4 C'sons Allstate Agency is now accepting appointments.
"I've had a lot of people say, what are your hours? Well technically our business hours are from 8:30 to 5:30. But that doesn't mean anything," Craig said. "If somebody wants to meet us at 9:30 at night, I don't care. We'll be there. We'll be available."
The 4 C'sons Allstate Agency is at 116 S. First St. More information is available at (928) 433-4090.
