First Watch is the largest breakfast and lunch restaurant in the United States. After starting in 1983, they have grown by serving always-fresh food, providing great customer service, and delivering on a “You First” attitude. This has allowed them to deliver what customers want in a family environment. They’re a big company that has retained their small company feel.
“We are a relatively new client of FBC and very pleased with the level of service and knowledge received as we navigate through the health insurance world today. The leadership of Chris Durkin and the assistance that the FBC team provides is not only helpful but invaluable. First Watch Restaurants could not be more satisfied with our decision to partner with FBC Insurance, Benefits & Consulting.”
After using the Mercer Companies as benefits consultants, First Watch felt they would receive the same top-level of expertise from FBC Services. Our closer personal attention and customized design strategy was a perfect fit for their workforce, which contains many variable hour employees.
Our initial review of the First Watch benefit plan identified a traditional “one-size-fits-all” approach to the medical plan and ancillary programs which did not address the needs of the employees relative to wage levels and millennial interests.
The Affordable Care Act has particular impact to any organization with variable hour employees. First Watch chose to not only comply with the law, but to do so in a manner that was simple and consistent. FBC has particular expertise in the specifics of the Affordable Care Act and was able to construct a compliant-benefit design which First Watch worked with on a budgeting basis. FBC understands our job is to translate the details of ACA compliance into actionable benefit plans which can be managed by our clients and foundational to their success with employees.
We are one of the oldest locally owned insurance and benefits consulting companies in Arizona. Throughout the industry, FBC is known for our high ethical and performance standards. In the 33 years we’ve been in business, we’ve continued to grow without losing sight of these founding values.
Today, FBC is licensed in 20 states and serves more than 300 major employers throughout the country. Our team guides our clients through the near-constant evolution of the healthcare industry and the impact such changes have on employee benefits. We enhance the value of compensation and help the companies we work with navigate around potential risks.
