The Five Fs
Established in 1932 out of a store in Mastersonville, Pennsylvania, The Hess Agency has a history of providing excellent service and great insurance products to the residents of Manheim. Principal Agent Steven Faus is a fourth-generation agency owner and plans to keep it in the family. Steven already has a fifth generation at the agency, his son Corey.
The agency is now housed in a renovated barn that holds the agency’s large 28-person staff, a far cry from its humble beginnings. However, the staff has never forgotten where they came from. The agency prides itself on the 5Fs – Fast, Fair, Friendly, Factual and Fun. You can be sure you’ll work with knowledgeable representatives when you take your insurance needs to The Hess Agency.
