Each month, the Greater Travelers Rest Chamber of Commerce will recognize one company from our network with a featured profile. These engaging articles are both educational and entertaining, providing essential information about the featured members as well as fun trivia.
The weekly spotlight is just one of the many ways the Greater Travelers Rest Chamber helps member companies gain exposure. These profiles, advertised across all our social media channels, introduce the work of innovative companies to a wide audience of business professionals and casual readers alike.

Cooper Chapman Insurance

It all started in Travelers Rest.

The year was 1999, when Mays Cooper started a small insurance agency in Travelers Rest, South Carolina. After more than thirty years of learning the business from some of Greenville’s most successful insurance professionals, Mays was ready to bring his unique blend of product knowledge, hospitality and positive energy to families and local businesses.

Today, Mays’ legacy of customer engagement is at the heart of everything we do at Cooper Chapman Insurance.

So while national insurance brands are spending billions each year on advertising, we continue to grow our business around the recommendations and referrals from satisfied customers who appreciate our honesty and value.
