Brightway Insurance Opens First North Carolina Store

Retail Insurance Store Franchise Continues National Expansion

Huntersville, N.C. (PRWEB) October 28, 2013 - A leading national independent insurance retailer recently opened its first store in the state of North Carolina.

The Brightway Insurance location was opened by new agency owner Dimitri Apostle at 9832 Gilead Road in Huntersville. Apostle opened the store with his father, Peter, and the two plan to open a second store in the region within the next six months.

"I’m extremely honored to head the first Brightway Insurance location in North Carolina," said Apostle, a Norton Shores, Mich. native. "I’ll be able to give my customers peace of mind with the extensive range of insurance carriers Brightway provides."

Apostle attended Valparaiso University and majored in economics. He has 10 years of insurance experience and previously worked for Anchor Insurance Group. He was drawn to Brightway by its state-of-the-art service, made possible by its industry-leading service center.

"Dimitri is a great addition to our team and Brightway’s continued growth in North Carolina and expansion across the country," said Brightway Insurance President Talman Howard.

Brightway plans to open 50 stores over the next five years in North Carolina. The company is expanding in multiple states, having just opened its first store in Kentucky in September.
