We’re ready to assist you today.

Insuramax/Keystone is honored to be accepted as an approved broker for the McDonald’s Insurance Program starting in 2018. Insuramax is a large independent broker founded in 1970 in Louisville, KY. Since 1970, We have evolved to one of our region’s largest insurance agencies and now insures commercial business on a national scope in both property/casualty and employee benefits. In 2010, Insuramax affiliated with Keystone Insurers Group, a community of independent insurance agencies and currently the third largest privately-held insurance agency partnership in the country. This affiliation means Insuramax and our team can provide clients additional resources, services, and capabilities, putting us in an elite group that can compete and win the most sophisticated and complex risks.

Our dedicated team of professional insurance advisors for the McDonalds Owner/Operators has over 75 years of combined experience insuring restaurants nationwide. This team is led by our Program Director, Russ Wardlaw, who alone has over 20 years of experience insuring McDonald’s franchisees. We are proud to build long term relationships with all McDonald’s Owner/Operators and will provide you with quarterly meetings involving detailed discussions about claims activity, new innovative products/coverages and potential exposures. Our team looks forward to bringing a skillful, innovative, and exciting approach to the McDonald’s insurance program.
