In October 1948, Bob Mitchell purchased the Malone Insurance Agency, which became what is known today as Mitchell Insurance.
Mitchell Insurance was first located at 111 S. New Madrid in Sikeston. In 1963, the company constructed a new office located at 801 N. Main.
In 1967, Jerry Burge joined the agency, and in 1970, Bob's son, Rob Mitchell, returned to work with his father. The agency continued to grow, and another office was built.
In February 1976, Mitchell Insurance moved to its present location at 901 N. Main.
What began as an agency of one producer and one customer service representative is now an agency of seven producers, thirteen customer service representatives and a second location in East Prairie, MO.
The agency began as a property and casualty agency, but is now a full service, multi-line insurance agency, service clients in several states.
Mitchell Insurance has the proud distinction of being the oldest family owned independent insurance agency in Sikeston.
