JACKSONVILLE, FLA. — Entrepreneur magazine named Brightway Insurance one of the Fastest-Growing Franchises in the country. The national property/casualty insurance distribution company is the only insurance franchise to make the list, ranking #135.
“We’re honored to make Entrepreneur’s list of Fastest-Growing Franchises and expect we’ll see unprecedented growth this year with new ways to achieve your dreams of business ownership through Brightway,” said Brightway CEO, Michael Miller, who co-founded Brightway with his brother, David, in 2008.
“In 10 short years, we’ve grown the business into one of the largest Personal Lines agencies in the U.S., and the not-so-secret ingredient to our success is our alignment with our franchisees. Simply put, Brightway doesn’t grow or profit unless our franchisees do. This makes our priorities very clear—do everything we can to help our franchisees be successful,” he added.
Entrepreneur culled the list of fastest-growing franchises from its Franchise 500® list. Fastest-growing rankings are based on the number of new franchise units added in the United States and Canada from July 2017 to July 2018, as verified by Entrepreneur, with ties broken based on percentage growth.

“Franchising trends are always changing, and our ranking of the fastest-growing franchises offers crisp insight into what’s hot right now,” says Jason Feifer, Entrepreneur's editor in chief. “And through this list, we’re also able to see the strategies that help newer brands ramp up quickly and that enable older ones to maintain their momentum."
