TAMPA, Fla. (PRWEB) March 19, 2013 - Cathy LaFleur is the newest franchise owner to join Brightway Insurance, a leading national independent insurance retailer.
LaFleur’s store recently opened at 12950 Race Track Rd., Suite 115 in Tampa. As it is the fastest-growing insurance agency in Florida, LaFleur, a Westwood, N.J. native, knew that Brightway was the right choice for her.
“Brightway’s wonderful customer service and family atmosphere are two things I couldn’t ignore when I was making my decision to open an insurance store,” said LaFleur. “I also couldn’t turn down Brightway’s state-of-the-art technology and wide range of carriers.”
Prior to opening her Brightway franchise, LaFleur worked for Leaders Insurance and is a member of the Westchase Area Business Association.
“Brightway makes its owners feel right at home, and I know that our clients receive top-notch care through the company’s exceptional customer service,” LaFleur said.
Brightway has announced plans to expand into 17 states and expects to open 50 new stores in 2013.
