Super Bowl LII Traditions and Treats From Petschauer Insurance

Chips & football

It's that time of year again! The Super Bowl is one of America’s favorite past times. Even if you aren’t the biggest football fan, the big game serves as a great opportunity for family and friends to come together. In addition to the game highlights, there are commercials and good food to enjoy, with fun activities to partake in. With Tom Brady and the Patriots set to face off against Nick Foles and the Eagles this Sunday, our team at Petschauer Insurance would like to share some of our favorite traditions, recipes, and venues with you.


Game Day Traditions:

We have Bourbon Tasting during half time. Everyone brings a bottle of bourbon (we look for something special or new) to the host’s house. During half time, we all try the different bourbon and then judge and vote for the best bourbon of the year. The host gets to keep all the bottles everyone brought. It’s very collaborative and fun! -- Rosmarie Wyszinski, Office Manager

We play “quarters.” Each participant puts 25 cents in a bowl at the start of the big game. The party host is the first person to hold the bowl. Each time a play is made and no points are scored, everyone adds 25 cents to the bowl and the bowl is passed along to the next person. When one teams scores, the person holding the bowl is the winner of the contents. We then start the process over again, with one exception; the person to the left of the winner starts off with the bowl. – LuAnn Schook, Commercial Lines Manager

I have worked with various individuals at Petschauer and have found each to be responsive, courteous, and thoughtful. Each year, the contact for my auto policy proactively seeks new bids and has consistently saved me money on my policy.

Petschauer is great. I never had a problem.  They always call me back. Fabulous employees who are always willing to help.

From the first time I spoke with Lori Halloran at Petschauer Insurance, I knew she was a special person. She is a woman that conducts herself professionally, with compassion and full knowledge of all types of insurance Petschauer has to offer. While speaking with her, as she explained and answered all of my questions, I felt like I was speaking with family…which is another way to describe this company. She has a way of making very confusing decisions so simple and easy to understand. I even added another insurance policy to my two renewal policies because of her. My last renewals could have been processed via mail but I really wanted to take the time to drive and meet this wonderful woman face to face. She greeted me with this huge beautiful smile, which matched her personality perfectly. So, I just had to go back another time just to say “Hi” and bring her flowers in appreciation for all her help and also celebrate a new friendship. The Petschauer “Family” has been there for me since my first policy when I was 19 years old, and now I’m a “senior”. I’ve been with them forever and don’t plan on going anywhere else. Thank you Lori for your dedication and to the rest of the Petschauer staff.

They have always provided excellent service to us–with great knowledge, expertise, and patience — even in the most challenging situations.

My company has called on Petschauer Insurance for many years for its insurance needs: liability, liquor, auto, etc. Working with Erwin and his team has been a pleasure from beginning to present. They are quick to answer any question and provide sound advice. I have always felt that my and our needs are important to them, in theory and practice. They go the extra mile, and we continue to be well served.
