Three reasons to start a Brightway agency:
1. Earning Potential
As a Brightway franchise owner you’ll also enjoy the unique benefit of building a residual income stream as policies you sell renew. Few businesses are as recession-proof as the insurance industry. As an independent agent, you'll have access to a steady stream of income—no matter what's happening in the economy.
2. Service & Support
Nearly 500 insurance experts provide training and support in areas including customer engagement, technology, accounting, marketing, distribution and Business analytics. In addition, Brightway handles carrier relations and appointments, as well as support with personnel hiring, licensing, onboarding, training and retention.
Take control of your future and be your own boss. Franchising not only offers you the same freedom of managing your own business but gives you the tools and support to lead you to success.

What our franchisees have to say...
"Brightway delivers the support that allowed me to move to a new community and start an insurance agency from scratch. Once open, I spent my time networking and relationship building with professional referral sources in the greater Charlotte business community, a luxury unavailable at my previous agency."

Now that I am operating my own Brightway Agency, I can tell you that I regret wasting all of those years not offering more choice and expert consultation to my customers. I wished I had joined the Brightway family sooner."
