JACKSONVILLE, FLA. — The Jacksonville Business Journal published its Fast 50 list, and Brightway Insurance ranks No. 2 among the companies in Northeast Florida that saw the largest volume revenue increases in the past three years. Since starting the business in 2008, Brightway has grown into one of the largest Personal Lines agencies in the U.S. with 320 franchise locations in 25 states.
“My brother, David, and I started the business using a utopian exercise to think of what should be along with a focus on natural alignments,” said Brightway President and CEO Michael Miller. “We continue to attract the best employees and business partners in our Agency Owners, and as a result have built one of the country’s largest Personal Lines insurance agencies and the most recognized insurance franchisor in the U.S. We’re honored to be recognized once again by the Jacksonville Business Journal as one of the region’s fastest-growing companies.”
Brightway’s unique independent agency franchise model offers a low-cost, turnkey solution to starting a business. The company’s award-winning customer service and back-office support empower people from a wide variety of backgrounds to build a profitable business. In traditional agencies, countless hours are spent servicing accounts for existing customers. However, Brightway handles that work on behalf of its agents, freeing them to focus on new sales all while building a residual income stream when policies renew.
Owning a business that allows you to focus on sales while building up revenue year after year means unlimited earning potential. Brightway also offers one of the most affordable franchises available in any industry. With franchise fees as low as $5,000, aspiring business owners can be up and running with a total investment of less than $30,000.
