Grace & Porta Benefits started in 1979 with two men renting an office space whose coffee bill competed with their monthly rent. Dave Porta, Sr. and Edward Grace, Sr. didn’t have a detailed business plan at first, but they did have two goals: to have fun every day and to put the client first.
In 2005, ownership of the business officially transitioned to Dave’s four sons. The business has grown from two friends to a family business to more than a family business, and from primarily life insurance to full-service benefit consulting.
Our above-mentioned goals – and the belief in easy access to constant caffeine– govern the business today.
