Beaudry Hometown Insurance is proud to be a family-owned company that has spanned three generations.

 What We Do

As an independent agency, we are able to shop your insurance needs out with multiple companies. You tell us what type of insurance you’re looking for and let us find the right coverage at a competitive price! Whether you're shopping for auto, home, health, life, or business insurance, we’ve got you covered. We are located in Albertville, MN and can serve residents of Minnesota.


Why We Do It

Insurance is about people, and it should be there when you need it. Our ultimate goal is to help our communities. That means being available to answer any question, via your preferred method of communication, with total honesty—so you can make educated decisions about your coverage with confidence.


Who We Are

Beaudry Hometown Insurance was founded in 1960 by Elmer Beaudry, when he and his wife Dorothy—who were on a farm raising eleven kids at the time—were asked by the community to sell life insurance. He accepted. Over time, Elmer expanded to farm insurance, and continued to branch out from there. The products he sold were only part of the picture, however. What the community valued the most about Elmer was how he made them feel. He made them laugh and feel safe, knowing they were in trustworthy hands. Having grown up on a farm, Elmer knew the importance of honesty, hard work, and valuing the hard work of others. He cared about people, and that’s why people liked doing business with him.

Elmer’s legacy lived on when the business was passed down to his son, Francis, and continues to live on now with his grandson, Blake, who took over the family business in 2019. For three generations, Beaudry Hometown Insurance has grown and adapted to suit the needs of the times, carrying on Elmer’s values of integrity, honesty, and community.

We have been with Francis Beaudry Insurance for 35 years. It is family run- we feel like family.
