To help it find the new agency owners, Allstate is offering a $6,000 award to anyone who refers a qualified candidate to the company. The referral award is payable upon the appointment of the candidate as an Allstate agency owner, said Chelci Vaughn, a spokeswoman for the company.

"Anyone can refer an agency owner candidate to us," she said.

To apply to become an agency owner, visit www.allstateagent.com or call 1-877-711-1006. Referrals are accepted at the same number.

To be eligible, applicants need a minimum of $50,000 of liquid capital to invest in their agency. Those funds do not go to Allstate but are earmarked for use by the agency owner to fund normal day-to-day costs associated with opening and running a business.

Agency owners make their money by collecting commissions off the sale of Allstate insurance policies and products, Vaughn said, adding that they never have to pay a franchise or licensing fee.

"Utah’s strong economy is fueling this expansion plan," Allison Williams, Allstate’s Utah sales leader, said in a statement. "We target cities and areas that show growth and increasing demand as part of Allstate’s broader strategy to expand our presence in Utah."

Allstate has 98 agency owners in Utah.
