The insurance industry has had some ups and downs over the past few years, but for the third-generation insurance family and owners of the
Keibler McCoy NuStar Insurance Agency
, the key to success was changing to fit the economy. After operating out of their home office since 2008, husband and wife team Todd McCoy and Lisa Kiebler-McCoy are moving into 1,078 square foot storefront in the Haslett Village.
"Well we both grew up in the Haslett and East Lansing area," says Todd McCoy. "It's close to home, it's close to where we grew up, and it's a good place to start to grow our business."
The Kiebler McCoy NuStart Insurance Agency will open later this summer, and McCoy hopes to have one employee hired and trained prior to that opening date. Additional hiring may occur after they open.
Their decision to open in the Haslett Village shopping center was aided by CB Richard Ellis/Martin
"We wanted a storefront area, as opposed to being in a office building," says McCoy. "We wanted a retail storefront type look. It's a nice, growing area."
