“We’re thrilled to welcome this first group of experienced insurance Agents to our Independent Agent program,” said Brightway President, Talman Howard. “This path to franchise ownership program allows experienced Agents to begin selling in the Brightway system while qualifying for franchise ownership with no up-front costs or risks.”
