Frankenmuth Insurance Company use to have some interesting joining requirements not seen today.
Based in Frankenmuth, Michigan, Frankenmuth Insurance has been around since 1868 when it was founded by a group of Bavarian pioneer settlers. They started as a mutual insurance company with 200 members in Frankenmuth. One of the initial requirements to be a part of this mutual insurance company is that both the husband and wife be Lutherans in good standing and both have to be able to speak German.
In 2007, Frankenmuth merged with Patriot Insurance Company to expand the area they write in. Today you can find Frankenmuth Insurance in the Midwest and the Southeast, as well as in New England under the Patriot Insurance name.
