JACKSONVILLE, FLA. — For the 11th consecutive year, Florida Trend recognized Brightway Insurance as one of the 225 Biggest Private Companies in Florida based on revenue. Brightway, a Jacksonville-based, market-leading insurance retailer and one of the largest Personal Lines insurance agencies in the United States, jumped 20 spots from last year to rank No. 84 on this year’s list. Founded in 2008, the company remains privately owned by Co-Founders and brothers, David and Michael Miller.

Brightway President and CEO, Michael Miller, said, “We are honored to be recognized by Florida’s premier business magazine 11 years in a row and to rank so high on the list. Since the beginning, we have focused on providing comprehensive business support to our franchise owners to fuel their success and have aligned our financial goals with theirs because when they succeed, the company succeeds.”

He continued, “We continue to grow because we attract the best business partners and invest in resources that help them thrive. When we first made the list in 2011, we had about 80 franchise locations in three states. Today, there are more than 300 Brightway franchise locations throughout 25 states with expansion into new states coming soon.”
