"I am so grateful that I was introduced to Billy and 1st Preferred Insurance through a network of my major food supplier. They have managed, year after year, to obtain affordable continuous coverage for me to meet the unique needs of my industry. 1st Preferred Insurance contacts me annually in ample time to renew coverage for the New Year and due their active approach the renewal is at little or no increase from the previous year. At the unfortunate time that I had to file a claim it was processed and paid with lightning speed. I am completely satisfied and secure with this company and the policies that they write. Bonus is they have obtainable financing to meet your needs. Thank you Billy and 1st preferred Insurance!" -Mrs. Mac's Kitchen
