Mulling Insurance Agency, a leading provider of consumer and commercial insurance in Polk County, today announced the recognition of the firm’s 60th Anniversary as a central Florida insurer.
Located in the Downtown Auburndale Historic District, Mulling Insurance was founded in 1957 by J. Foister “Moon” Mulling when Foister began selling insurance from his downtown men’s clothing store. The firm has now grown to be among the largest and longest-tenured insurance agencies in Polk county and is recognized as one of the largest family-owned insurance firms in the state of Florida.
“Our growth over 60 years mirrors the support and growth of our community,” said Kevin Mulling, vice president and grandson of the founder. “My grandfather set the tone for how our business was to be run, with a focus on community and serving others first. He knew that if we stayed focused on others and not ourselves, we would never struggle to find success. This remains a core value of our organization and I’m far prouder of our status in our community than I will ever be with the profitability or size of our organization. That being said, I’m hopeful that our fantastic family of clients, which includes tens of thousands of local families, businesses, schools, churches, and non-profit organizations, will forever see us as their local trusted advisor, protector, and partner and never feel as though we are acting in a way that is not in their best interest.”
“We’re not just a business serving a community. We’re long-time members of that community, with a deep passion and commitment to support our neighbors, local businesses, and institutions,” said Jim Mulling, president. “We take enormous pride in the service our company provides to numerous local charities throughout the community and our team thrives on seeking out local needs and coming together to help meet them.”
To celebrate the anniversary, the company will be having a luncheon at the Auburndale City Park (across the street from its Auburndale location) for its employees, clients and the community on Friday, November 3rd from 11:30-1:30.
