You may have been doing business with Snapp & Associates Insurance for as many as 67 years. Or maybe you’ve been doing business with John Toon for over 20 years. But how much do you know about us?
In 1947, Jim Snapp, who was once the mayor of El Cajon, founded Snapp & Associates Insurance Agency. He partnered with Dave Hafford and Bob Auth 15 years later. These men built the business from the ground up – literally! They constructed the original building in El Cajon by hand. In 1991, Jack Toon acquired the company from Dave. Through hard work, client dedication, and developing a widespread reputation as an honest businessman, the agency exploded in size and success. After establishing a solid foundation, Jack passed down the agency to his son, John Toon in 2003, who still runs the business today with his business partner, Dan Beck. Jack started with very few employees and a lot of paper back then. Today, we have a staff of 37 insurance professionals in five locations, who utilize modern technology to best serve our clients. From stone tablets/paper files to flat screen computers with duel monitors – what a world of change over the years!
We got started by advertising in the yellow pages and on the radio for several years. Today we use our blog, various websites, social media channels, and participate in various charity events to make Snapp & Associates an integral part of the San Diego community. But the truth is that our best advertising is you, our clients. Referrals are the lifeblood of our business and we’re grateful to all of you for the countless referrals you’ve given us over the years.
At Snapp & Associates, we’re insurance experts and understand the individual needs of each of our clients and can provide you with superior insurance coverage at a competitive price.
Thanks for being our loyal customer. We do appreciate your business.
John and Dan
