We recently helped Chamber Member Donna Randolph, State Farm Insurance, celebrate the grand opening of her second office location with a Ribbon Cutting!

Randolph’s first State Farm Insurance office is located at 1650 S. Broadway in Santa Maria. She recently expanded the businesses to a second location at  1103 E Clark Ave, Suite D in Orcutt.

Randolph was selected by State Farm to open a second location because of the great success the agency has seen in Santa Maria. Randolph became the first second-location State Farm Agent in this territory. Her office was one of 175 out of the 19,000 offices nationwide that were selected for the second location opportunity.

Randolph attributes the success she’s seen so far to her great team.

“I’m fortunate enough to have a great team of people supporting this business,” Randolph said. “Honestly any one of my agents could branch off and start their own business and be successful. I’m just fortunate enough they are working for me.”

Randolph says her story of becoming a business owner is really “a dream story”. She began working for State Farm at the age of 16 through a program at her high school. Her mentor, Muril Clift, has remained a role model for Randolph throughout her career.

“At my eight week internship, I ended up staying for twenty years,” jokes Randolph. “I now own the agency where I stated working when I was 16. It’s just a dream come true.”

Randolph now also serves as her mentor, Muril Clift’s, State Farm Agent.
