JACKSONVILLE, FLA. — Brightway Insurance is the only insurance franchisor to be recognized by Franchise Business Review on its inaugural Culture100 list. The list recognizes the top 100 franchise brands in a 2020 report on the Best Franchise Cultures.
“From the time my brother, David, and I started Brightway 12 years ago, we set out to help everyone associated with the brand to reach their potential,” said Brightway President and CEO, Michael Miller.
“Whether we’re recruiting new franchisees or new employees to work for our corporate office, we look for people who embody our Core Values of Smart, Accountable and Trustworthy. Staying true to these fundamental values and purpose has kept us focused on providing Win, Win, Win (Win3) outcomes for our franchisees, customers and employees. We’re grateful for our franchisees and Home Office team and are thrilled to be recognized by Franchise Business Review for cultivating a positive culture.”
Franchise Business Review, a franchise market research firm that performs independent surveys of franchisee satisfaction, provides the only rankings of franchises based solely on actual franchisee satisfaction and performance. The firm publishes its rankings of top franchises in its annual Guide to Today’s Top Franchises, as well as in special interest reports throughout the year that identify the top franchises in specific sectors.
Brightway is among more than 300 franchise brands, representing over 27,000 franchise owners, that participated in Franchise Business Review’s research on the best franchise cultures. Brightway’s franchisees were surveyed on 33 benchmark questions about their experience and satisfaction regarding critical areas of their franchise systems, including leadership, training and support, the franchisee community and work/life balance.
“Many franchise organizations ‘talk the talk’ when it comes to culture, but it’s clear that they don’t all ‘walk the walk’,” said Eric Stites, CEO of Franchise Business Review. “A strong culture doesn’t just happen within a company—it has to be designed, built, and constantly maintained. The franchise companies that have the honor of being named to our first-annual Culture100 list are clearly among the best of the best franchises in the business.”
