A New Vision

For Insurance.

It all began in 2003, when Robyn Jones
(a real estate investor) and
Mark Jones
(a Senior Partner at Bain & Co), had an
idea that would
transform the insurance
industry.

The strategy was simple: Provide a true
concierge client experience
that gives
clients the power of choice from the top
rated national and
regional insurance
carriers.

Instead of modeling Goosehead after
other agencies, Mark started
with a
blank sheet of paper and designed a
business model focused
on providing
the best service, the best value and the
best experience
for its clients.

Combining a team of the most capable
people and melding them
together with
cutting edge technology, Goosehead
has become one of
the largest and
fastest-growing agencies in the business.
Today, the
company has over 400
franchise agency partners.

Here's How We've Done It

See where we
are going next.

We already cover more than 70 percent of the
country, and on average we’re opening a new franchise
location every 1.7 days.
