Brightway Insurance Celebrates Eighth Anniversary

August 19, 2016 // Franchising.com // JACKSONVILLE, FLA - Brightway’s will mark its eighth year in business on Saturday, August 20; the company will celebrate the occasion with a birthday party at its headquarter location on University Blvd. West on Friday, August 19.

The company sells property/casualty insurance through a network of franchised independent agencies throughout the country.

Founded by long-time Jacksonville residents David and Michael Miller, the focus of the company is developing true partnerships with consumers, employees and Agency Owners.

Brightway Chairman and Co-founder David Miller, said: “We had three simple ideas that have really taken hold. One was that consumers deserved maximum choice when it comes to the insurance companies they can choose from. The second was that we, as franchisors, should only grow and profit when our business partners, our franchisees, grow and profit. And, the third was that we should help everyone associated with the business reach their personal potential. This is what drives us every day and it’s working. That’s what we call a win-win-win.”

As a result of this focus, since 2008 Brightway has grown:

  • Number of offices from 38 in 2008 to 123 today
  • Annualized written premium from $36 million in 2008 to $395 million as of year-end 2015, and to $419 million as of last Friday
  • The number of people working to achieve their potential at Brightway from 155 in 2008 to 735
  • Brightway is the seventh largest privately held Personal Lines agency in the U.S.
