Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) March 01, 2013 - Brightway Insurance has been recognized by Franchise Business Review, a leading market research firm in the franchise industry, for Brightway’s exceptional evaluation by its franchisees in a nationwide inquiry across a wide range of franchise sectors.
“Our franchisees are closest to the day-to-day action of managing a Brightway Insurance business, so their positive feedback in this report is of great importance,” said David Miller, CEO of Brightway Insurance. “Brightway will continue to take innovative steps to support our franchisees in providing tremendous service to customers.”
The 2013 Franchisee Satisfaction Awards are based on a satisfaction survey of more than 26,000 franchisees representing more than 350 franchise brands.
“One of the best ways to know if a brand is really as good as it says is to look at a brand’s franchisee satisfaction data,” said Franchise Business Review President Michelle Rowan. “Not all brands survey their franchisees but those who do offer a wealth of information on a franchise’s leadership, training and support, franchise model, and financial outlook.”
Now in its eighth year, the Satisfaction Awards, or “FBR50,” is the only award programs to rank companies based solely on actual franchisee satisfaction. Brightway’s award serves as a testament to the outstanding support and services it offers its franchisees.
“These franchisors truly understand the importance of surveying their operators. If franchisees aren’t happy, they won’t validate your system, and you won’t sell franchises—it’s really that simple,” Rowan said.
Brightway, which increased sales more than 50 percent last year, has announced plans to expand into 17 states and expects to open 50 new stores in 2013.
