STUART, FLA. — Brightway Insurance is pleased to share that Vincent Zanfini has become the newest three-unit Owner with the national insurance franchise. Zanfini, who became a Franchise Owner in 2018 when he purchased a Brightway store in Stuart from former Franchise Owner, Tony Barletta, recently became the new owner of a Brightway store in Port St. Lucie, which made him a Multi-unit Owner. And, with the opening of his newest store in Stuart, he is now owner of three Brightway franchise locations. What’s more, Zanfini has teamed up with his former boss, Barletta, who is the Principal Agent at the newest location.

“Tony taught me so much about being a successful Insurance Agent, so when he offered me the chance to buy the agency from him, I jumped at the opportunity,” said Zanfini. “We make a great team, so we’re both thrilled to work together again to grow the business that serves our friends and neighbors on the Treasure Coast.”

Prior to joining Brightway in 2010, Zanfini was bartending, and his wife was expecting their second child. He knew he wanted a fulfilling career that would allow him to help others and better provide for his family, so he went to work for Barletta. He continued to tend bar in the evenings to make ends meet, but his appetite for success allowed him to quit his evening job after two years so he could focus solely on his insurance career. By 2013, Zanfini was recognized as one of Brightway’s $1 Million Producers, which he won five years in a row.

“Vincent Zanfini is a great business partner, and we’re thrilled to see him grow his business,” said Brightway CEO and Co-Founder Michael Miller. “Our job is to help our Franchise Owners achieve their dreams which, for many, means growing an enterprise of their own.”
