February 17, 2016 // Franchising.com // JACKSONVILLE, FLA - For the second year in a row, Brightway Insurance, the nation’s seventh largest privately held Personal Lines insurance agency, has been named to the Franchise Gator Top 100 and is again the only independent agency franchisor in the ranking.
Brightway was awarded the distinction based on a proven track record of growth, financial stability, long-term sustainability and franchisee satisfaction.
“We are proud of the success and profitability of our Agency Owners,” said Founder and Chairman David Miller. “We are able to deliver these results because our interests are completely aligned with our Agency Owners’. We are very transparent about every facet of the system; our goal is to produce win-win-win outcomes for customers, Agency Owners, and our employees every day.”
Miller said: “We invented the ‘you sell, we service’ model more than a decade ago. And, since then, we’ve never sat still as we built - and continue to build - the most comprehensive independent agency system that gives Agency Owners access to more insurance companies than anyone else and support in all back-office functions so they can focus on selling and growing their businesses.
Founded in 2003, the company is now the nation’s seventh largest privately held Personal Lines insurance agency in the country. The company has grown from 38 locations in Florida and $36 million in annualized written premium in 2008 to 118 locations in 11 states and $400 million today.
In 2015, the company was named the nation’s No. 1 Franchise to Buy by Forbes and to the Inc. 500 as one of the fastest-growing privately held companies in the country eight years in a row. Most recently, the company has been named to Entrepreneur magazine’s 2016 Franchise 500 list for the third year in a row and to Franchise Gator’s list of the 50 Fastest Growing Franchises.
