JACKSONVILLE, FLA. — More consumers now have the opportunity to enjoy a better way to shop for insurance as seven insurance sales professionals are now on the path to the American dream of business ownership through the Brightway Insurance Independent Agent program. The Independent Agent program is a six- to 12-month period in which insurance sales professionals can qualify for a fully financed franchise fee to enter our Office Agent franchise program.
“Our Independent Agent program only launched in January of this year, but already we’ve seen it grow tremendously,” said Brightway Co-Founder and CEO, Michael Miller. “We saw one of our biggest groups of Independent Agents to date in August as we welcomed seven new Agents to the Brightway system and started them on the path to business ownership.”
