Allstate has an interesting history. Founded in 1931, it was first part of Sears, Roebuck, and Co--known today as Sears. Allstate’s slogan, “You’re in good hands,” was created in the 1950s. A sales executive came up with it, based on something he used to say to comfort his pregnant wife. In 1967, the company moved its headquarters to Northbrook, Illinois, which remains its home today.
Allstate has donated millions of dollars to the scholarship funds of around 70 colleges. It’s also made a name for itself by focusing on sustainability. But, there have been complaints about the company underpaying claims. Since 2011, Allstate has been the parent company of Esurance.
