JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — More consumers now have the opportunity to enjoy a better way to shop for insurance, and two people are realizing the American dream of business ownership as Brightway Insurance continues to expand across the country, opening new stores in Florida and South Carolina on Monday, April 23.

“We look for the best and the brightest to become the face of our brand and are thrilled to welcome Jeff Howard and Troy Novotny to the franchise system,” said Brightway President, Talman Howard. “We measure our success by our franchisees’ success, so every decision we make is based on our Win-Win-Win mandate, meaning everything we do must be a win for our franchisees, a win for our customers and a win for the company.”  
  • Jeff Howard will open Brightway, The Howard Agency in Charleston, S.C. For information, visit BrightwayHoward.com.
  • Troy Novotny will open Brightway, The Novotny Agency in Jacksonville, Fla. For information, visit BrightwayNovotny.com.

Brightway Agency Owners enjoy comprehensive business support including customer service, carrier relationships, marketing, accounting and technology. As a result, Brightway agencies consistently outsell other insurance agencies three-to-one.*

Brightway franchisees make more than three times the income of individuals who are self-employed in other businesses. For top performers, the gap is six-fold. What’s more, having an insurance background is not a prerequisite to becoming a Franchise Owner with Brightway. In fact, 40 percent of the above-average performing Brightway Franchise Owners did not have prior insurance experience.
