CRA is pleased to announce a new partnership with Crest Restaurant Insurance

The Colorado Restaurant Association has recently partnered with Crest Restaurant Insurance in a strategic effort to increase our member value. As part of this partnership, Crest Insurance Group has acquired the agency and will be running operations out of their new office in Denver.

"This is an exciting, strategic move for our member-based organization,” said Sonia Riggs, CRA President & CEO. “This move will allow us to maintain the focused level of service, expertise, and quality that our members have come to expect, and it will provide enhanced options and offerings with the support of a regional agency. The full agency staff, led by Sean Pechan, is moving to Crest so members and clients should experience a seamless transition. Crest Restaurant Insurance continues as the exclusive endorsed insurance partner of the CRA, so our relationship will continue well into the future."

The newly formed Crest Restaurant Insurance will provide a deeper level of customer service by combining the strengths of a regional agency with the focused attention to restaurants and hospitality clients.
