Chamber of Commerce welcomes Allstate

The Jessamine County Chamber of Commerce welcomed a new Allstate Agency at a ribbon cutting on Thursday, June 15. 

The agency located on 130 Bellerive Blvd., Suite 20 opened on June 1. J. Canizal, the owner of the new location, is from Puerto Rico, and he moved to Kentucky 17 years ago. He worked as a finance and insurance manager for an auto group in Louisville for the past eight years.  

“I’m familiar with financial services and the insurance industry,” Canizal said. 

Though he is not new to finances and insurance, Canizal is new to owning an Allstate agency. He is a University of Kentucky and Union College graduate. Canizal said he is excited to help people in the community save money. 

“I live here in the community in Jessamine County,” Canizal said. “And of course I’m eager and that’s what I’m happy about, the work it takes to live with your community and try to help them in any way I can to help them save money, If I cannot save them money then, of course, I can educate them on how they can protect themselves and their families.” 

Allstate provides auto, home, life and retirement insurance. The Canizal agency joins another Allstate agency in Nicholasville.
