Brightway Insurance Opens Third Gainesville Location

Insurance retailer expands its Florida footprint.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (PRWEB) January 15, 2015 - University of Florida alumnus Kristy Moffat recently opened her Brightway Insurance store in Haile Plantation at 9127 SW 52nd Ave, Suite D-103.

Initially drawn to Brightway because of its fast-growing brand, Moffat decided that the company’s access to numerous insurance companies and its sales-focused business model were great reasons to join the leading independent insurance agency franchise and open its 102nd Florida location.

"Becoming a business owner feels wonderful, since it has been a goal of mine for some time," Moffat said. "Brightway’s network of carriers is a tremendous asset for the Gainesville community. We can build an incredible business, providing the community with the best insurance coverage."

Prior to opening her Brightway store, Moffat was a regional manager for Weston Insurance. She also worked for Perr & Knight, an insurance consulting firm. Her insurance experience began with State Farm Insurance in 1999, where she spent the majority of her career.

Moffat holds several insurance and financial designations, including that of Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter, which is held by less than five percent of those employed in the insurance industry; Chartered Life Underwriter; Chartered Financial Consultant; Fellow, Life Management Institute; and Fellow, Financial Services Institute.

Moffat is president of the North Central Florida CPCU Chapter as well as a member of Alachua County Emerging Leaders, Gainesville Area Women’s Network and Gainesville Area Chamber of Commerce. She earned her Bachelor of Science and Master of Education degrees from the University of Florida.

About Brightway

Brightway operates more than 110 franchise locations in eight states.

Brightway agents consistently sell more new personal lines policies than other independent agents because they have access to more than twice the number of insurance carriers that other independent agents do. This allows them to offer 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 corporate headquarters handle service after the sale, technology and carrier relationships centrally and on behalf of its agents.

In 2014, 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 between 2008 and 2014 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, Forbes recognized Brightway as one of the best franchises in the U.S. For more information, visit or call 888-254-5014.
