Sprung Insurance

It’s happened to all of us before… you knew it might happen eventually, but you didn’t think it would happen today…you sneeze, but you have no tissue to clean yourself up! Talk about catastrophe… Another thing you don’t want to be caught without is insurance. My go to insurance recommendation is Sprung Insurance Agency. 

 

Sprung Insurance is family owned and operated by Lyle Sprung and his wife. Here, you get the best of both worlds: you have the resources of a large company like Farmers Insurance, with the care and customer service of a small local business. The staff at Sprung Insurance all have something that can’t be trained, and that’s sincere kindness. Everyone here genuinely wants what is best for you and your family. They are here to do reviews of existing policies you have, or give you a quote and discuss what coverage would be best for you! The best part is you feel no pressure, they are not using you to make a sale, they are here to help. 

 

Lyle had been in the business of helping people for a while when a friend of his suggested the insurance business to him. He is passionate about providing protection for everyone and insurance protects people, their assets, and their families. An unfortunate truth is that the majority of people do not understand what their insurance means. They know that they have one, but they are not sure what it covers, and more importantly, what it does not cover. Lyle gets satisfaction from being able to sit down with clients and go through their coverage and educate them on what their policy means, what they are buying, and what is being done to protect them. 

 

Being able to inform people on their coverage so that each person in the community can be prepared and protected from anything is Lyle’s favorite part of the job. The insurance industry can be confusing. There are so many exclusions and exceptions. At Sprung Insurance Agency, they make sure you are well educated on your coverage and protected.

Owner and operator Joanne Bennett, originally a singer from London, came to the United States with the plan of continuing to sing. After deciding to move on from singing, she fell into her next strongest passion, baking. Joanne received her baking education from her mother, who was also a pastry chef. Some of the recipes used in London Bakery & Tea Room today are actually her grandmothers! 

 

London Bakery & Tea Room specialized in British baked goods and are most famous for their scones and high tea. They also serve shortbread, jams, jellys, cakes, and fulfill special orders! Joanne wanted to keep the mom and pop business model and is also adamant on remaining a scratch bakery. So you are guaranteed to have the freshest baked goods out there! Joanne bakes with love and healing and hopes that all of her guests get that much out of going to her slice of heaven. 

 

Here at London Bakery & Tea Room, they have everything you need for perfect afternoon tea. The antique-like atmosphere perfectly compliments our beloved city of Ramona. There are classic antiques and paintings filling up the space in the bakery that are of Joanne’s own personal collection. Along with her decor, she also used her own bone china from England as well as any that are donated. It’s truly a breath of fresh air to enjoy tea in this bakery. Everything from the decor, the food, and the music just brings you back to how it used to be and you are able to sit and converse with loved ones.

Actually there are the best pasture raised eggs in all of Southern California, and they are right here in Ramona!

They also have all natural fruits and vegetables that change from week-to-week and season-to-season so you can be assured you’re getting the freshest produce out there. 

 

After being raised on the ranch, Luie, one of the children of the owners came to the conclusion he wanted to continue in the industry and build up the family company. That is when the idea of Happy-Hens can along. In the beginning of 2012 Happy-Hens was birthed out of his desire to produce the healthiest and most delicious eggs on the market while simultaneously leaving behind the lightest footprint on the environment possible using all recycled materials for his hens. They are ranked number two in the entire nation, so you could say he is good at what he does.
