What ERIE Customers Have to Say
The best recommendation is a satisfied customer.

Here’s what one business owner had to say about working with ERIE. 

Fruit Distributor and ERIE Sow Seeds of Successful Partnership

United Apple Sales Lyndonville , NY 50-100 employees

Fruit Distributor

The seed was planted by Ward Dobbins’ great-grandfather at an apple farm in Lockport, N.Y., more than 100 years ago.

The roots of that family business grew healthy and strong. Now — four generations later and under Ward Dobbins’ leadership — it has blossomed to include multiple businesses under the umbrella of United Apple Sales. Each business has its own purpose — from storage to marketing — but the bottom line is that the Dobbins family and their team sells more than 180 million apples a year (over 20 varieties) all over the world.

Ward chose ERIE to protect his business more than a decade ago. When he was choosing insurance, he found that comparing ERIE with other insurance carriers was, well, like comparing apples to oranges.

“Our agent has become a close friend of ours and we trust him to direct us to the coverage that is best for us,” Ward said. “He thought ERIE would be a good match for us, and he was right. We’ve always been very happy with the company. They offer us great coverage at a great price and we know they’ll treat us right.”
