Brightway Insurance Opens Newest Florida Store

Panama City Native Returns as a Franchise Owner

Panama City, Fla. (PRWEB) September 03, 2014 - When Dale Turner's wife received a job offer in Panama City, the couple seized the chance to return to Dale's hometown. He saw in Brightway Insurance, an independent insurance agency, an opportunity to realize his dream of owning his own business. He now owns and operates the Brightway Insurance store in Panama City at 855 East 23rd Street.

Turner, a graduate from the University of Alabama, holds a bachelor's in criminal justice with a minor in business administration. Nationwide Insurance named him its 2002 employee of the year for all Southeast claims associates, and he later moved to Farmers Insurance. Now, with more than 10 years of insurance experience, Turner is opening his own Brightway store.

"As a franchise owner of a leading insurance agency, I'm finally living my dream of being a business owner," said Turner. "Insurance is a necessity, and to offer a variety of coverage that satisfies individuals' needs is an honor."

During his down time, Turner coaches youth baseball and soccer. He enjoys great seafood and trips to the beach with his wife.

About Brightway

Brightway operates more than 100 franchise locations in eight states.

Brightway agents consistently sell more new personal lines policies than other independent agents and have access to more than twice the number of insurance carriers that other independent agents do, giving their customers a broader selection of insurance companies from which to choose.

The company's growth is a testament to its business model. Brightway's system enables its network of owner-agents to focus on selling and growing their books of business. Brightway's headquarters handle service after the sale, technology and carrier relationships centrally.

Earlier this year, Brightway opened its first stores in Missouri and Pennsylvania and its second store in Arizona.

The company earned recognition from Entrepreneur Magazine as the No. 1 insurance franchise in the country in 2013, from Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest-growing privately held companies in the country from 2008 to 2013 and from Franchise Business Review as a "Top 50 Franchise" in 2012 and 2013. Inc. Magazine also awarded Brightway its Hire Power Award, recognizing the company as one of the top 100 job creators in the U.S. in 2012 and 2013. In 2014, the Jacksonville Business Journal recognized Brightway as one of the "Fastest Growing Companies." For more information, visit or call 888-254-5014.
