This month, we are bringing you some food favorites of our own Scott Alverson!

A University of Cincinnati graduate, Scott is relatively new to the insurance industry, but is excited for the opportunities being presented to him! Outside of work, he enjoys spending time with his friends and families and using his Bengals football and Xavier basketball season tickets on the weekends.

When it comes to dining out, Chipotle Mexican Grill is a definite go-to for Scott.

“Being allergic to milk and eggs my food options are limited, but Chipotle is always my go-to. I load up my bowl with white rice and double steak. I pour half a bottle of smoked chipotle tobasco sauce on top and scoop it up with some chips.”

Need directions? They have SEVERAL locations.



Scott enjoys this Puppy Chow recipe (without milk) that’s perfect for that party you’re attending or if you just want a delicious snack at home!
