Earning potential

Few businesses are as recession-proof as the insurance industry. As an independent agent, you'll have access to a steady stream of income—no matter what's happening in the economy. Not only will you earn commission on every new policy you write—you'll earn additional commission each time the policy renews. 

Business services and support

Brightway delivers Business Planning, Accounting, Marketing, Operations, Training and other functions critical to starting and succeeding as an Agency Owner. We take care of the time-consuming tasks and free you to focus on sales and relationship-building. 


When you open a Brightway franchise, you'll gain access to the top insurance companies in your market. You will not be limited to one insurance provider like captive agents.  You have the option to start a small office or open—or grow into—a larger office.  When the time comes to retire, you also have choices on how to exit your business.  .

Sensible cost of ownership

Brightway Insurance offers one of the most affordable franchise models available—in any industry. With franchise fees as low as $5,000, your new business can be up and running with an investment of less than $25,000. Backed by our support, you can quickly recoup you investment with new and recurring sales. 

Ability to grow your enterprise

Brightway’s franchise fee gives you the right to open your first Brightway location and the option to open a second for free within the first five years. Two-thirds of Brightway franchisees surveyed said they are considering adding additional Brightway locations to their enterprises, including one in four who say they definitely plan to expand with Brightway.

A legacy

What sets Brightway apart from many other insurance agency opportunities is your ability to build a legacy. When you become a franchise partner with us, you are economically tied to your book of business and have many options available to you: free unlimited contract renewals, the ability to pass on or sell your agency or receive a guaranteed buy-out at your contract renewal.

What our franchisees have to say...

Being a Brightway Agency Owner allows me to fulfill all my career ambitions without limitations. In return, the success I have provides directly for my family and community. It is incredible to bring 15 years of industry experience to making sure my community is adequately protected. For me, it is not just about making a lifestyle for my family, but for bettering my community. I finally feel a sense of purpose with my career.

Maegan Lunte Brightway, The Lunte Family Agency
Wylie, TX

Louisiana was a brand-new state for Brightway and when I opened my doors, I had access to more than a dozen insurance companies. Where I came from, I had access to exactly one company. Combining my expertise with a wide variety of insurance markets makes my offering invaluable to my customers.

There is nothing I could have done for the last nine years that would have provided for my family and myself as well as having been part of Brightway.

Largo, FL

For me, the Brightway business model has two very important keys: access to a wide range of carriers that allow us to meet our clients’ needs, and a service center that lets agencies focus on continually growing new business.

The number of carriers that Brightway works with was simply much better than what was offered by other companies. As a former captive agent for a national carrier, I know how important is to have choices when it comes to finding the right coverage for my customers.

Naples, FL and Bonita Springs, FL

With Brightway Insurance and the support they provide me and my agency, we are growing at an astronomical pace, something that is very unique to the insurance industry where most businesses level off in growth. That is a true testament to the Brightway model that allows its agents to achieve all that we want as long as we invest and believe in ourselves.
