The agency has a footprint that stretches from around Sidney to West Chester to Richmond., Ind., and has about 460 agents. Their agent count has been growing, particularly as more young people get into the business, he said.

Along with the strong year of sales, Sweeney said the agency is bullish about next year and is opening an office in Monroe to meet demand where the Dayton and Cincinnati metro areas meet.

“The Dayton economy is generally good, which helps,” Sweeney said.
