JACKSONVILLE, FLA. – Franchise Business Review recently recognized Brightway Insurance as one of its Most Innovative Franchise Brands in 2019, ranking Brightway No. 33 out of the 100 brands featured on the list. To identify the top contenders, Franchise Business Review analyzed 18 months’ worth of data and feedback from more than 25,000 franchisees representing over 250 brands regarding their brands’ innovation and creativity. Overall satisfaction with their brands and their likelihood to recommend them to others were also factored into consideration.
“Innovation has been the foundation of our company and its driving force,” said Brightway CEO and Co-Founder, Michael Miller. “It’s what drives continuous improvement in the support platform we provide our franchisees that helps agencies flourish.”
Brightway has recently implemented a number of improvements to drive innovation even faster. In July, the company welcomed its first Chief Technology Officer, Bob Hitchcock, to the Leadership Team. Miller said: “Hitchcock brings with him 20 years’ of experience driving innovation in eCommerce, a skillset that will help us continue to be an innovator in this space.”
In August, Brightway made available to its franchisees a world-class recruiting and competency testing tool that helps them assess Agent candidates. Further, Brightway benchmarked the most successful Agents in the system, empowering franchisees to benchmark candidates against the best in the system.
“There are clearly brands that prioritize and value innovation and are constantly looking for ways to improve. For prospective franchisees, understanding which brands are the most innovative can help you make a confident and smart investment,” said Eric Stites, CEO of Franchise Business Review. “Each of the 100 companies on this list have developed and executed products, processes, or services that enable and sustain growth and long-term relevancy.”
