JACKSONVILLE, FLA. — The Jacksonville Business Journal published its inaugural Franchisors 2021 list, and Brightway Insurance ranks No. 3 on the list of companies based in Northeast Florida ranked by number of units at year-end 2020. Brightway is the only insurance franchise on the list and the youngest company among the top three. Despite an unprecedented year, Brightway experienced exceptional growth, adding more franchise units in 2020 than in any other year in the company’s history.
“I’m really proud of our team and how we were able to adapt and innovate in the midst of the pandemic,” said Brightway President and CEO, Michael Miller. “Because of our people, their drive and the technology infrastructure we had built prior to the pandemic that allowed us to move to a remote environment quickly, we were able to continue to deliver great value and service to our franchisees and our customers. It was remarkable what we were able to accomplish, and I’m so grateful for our employees and business partners who made it happen. We are honored to be named among the top franchise companies in Florida’s First Coast.”
Few businesses are as recession-proof as the insurance industry. Brightway’s unique independent agency franchise model offers a low-cost, turnkey solution to starting a business, and as an Agency Owner you will have a steady stream of income -- no matter what is happening in the economy. 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.
In addition to the recognition from the Jacksonville Business Journal, Brightway has earned recognition as a top franchise in the country eight times this year, to include being named to Entrepreneur magazine’s prestigious Franchise 500. And, just last week, the company landed on the Inc. 5000 for the 10th time.
