Please Join Us in Congratulating Stolly Insurance Group as May’s Logan County Chamber Entrepreneur & Business of the Month.
Peter Stolly, born and raised in Logan County, began his career with Stolly Insurance Group in 2003 where he worked out of their Lakeview office. Peter became a partner of the agency in 2007 and was instrumental in the relocation and planning of the newly built office on Rush Avenue here in Bellefontaine in 2012.
The Stolly Insurance Agency was founded in 1904 by Peter’s Great Grandfather, Albert A. Stolly. Albert started in Celina, Ohio in the back of a butcher shop! He sold their first Physician’s Liability Policy that year. This policy had a limit of $5000 and a $10 annual premium. The Stolly Agency sold its first auto policy in 1911 and its first homeowner policy in 1955.
Since its humble beginnings, in the back of a butcher shop, this family owned and operated business has grown to become a 5 generation business servicing clientele throughout Ohio and the surrounding states! Their hard work and entrepreneurial spirit has resulted in expansions to include offices in Celina, Lima, Wapakoneta, Westerville and Bellefontaine. The Stolly Insurance Group currently employs 55 employees including 24 agents. Of those 55 employees, 13 are Stolly’s: five 4th generation and eight 5th generation!
