Pronto Insurance Focused On Franchise Growth
Pronto, the industry leader in non-standard insurance, serves the Hispanic market. Pronto offers a scalable retail concept and a residual-based revenue model that allows franchisees to hit the ground running, and keep customers loyal to the brand.
Pronto multi-unit franchisee Amado Sanchez broke even just three months after he opened his first South Texas location in 2017. He quickly geared up for more growth.
“My initial goal was to own five Pronto Insurance agencies within five years,” says Sanchez. “I opened three stores in three years, so now my goal has shifted to have 10 stores in five years. I would like to continue to grow with Pronto as an investor and be part of this family.”
Before Sanchez signed on as a Franchise Owner, he served as controller at Pronto’s corporate office in Brownsville, Texas. He didn’t have much experience in insurance—or franchising—when he started with Pronto in 2015, but as a CPA with a background as a financial analyst, Sanchez could spot a smart investment. He appreciated the low cost of entry and sustained growth potential, where Franchise Owners can experience a 171% increase in average gross sales from year one to year five.*
Sanchez says Pronto made it easy for him to trade his corporate role for an entrepreneurial journey, starting with extensive classroom and on-the-job training at Pronto’s headquarters. Franchise Owners can also count on Pronto’s team of experts for ongoing support with store openings, customer service, and marketing.
“You don’t need to be an insurance or business person to get started,” says Sanchez. “If you work hard and dedicate time, you will have success. I would recommend Pronto to anyone.”
With nearly 300 locations in Texas, California, and Florida, both existing and new Franchise Owners continue to grow with the brand. Pronto has posted five consecutive years of double-digit sales growth and is looking to grow aggressively in new and existing markets.
Locally valued and nationally recognized as a great franchise to own, the brand is a top 25 franchise for Hispanics and was selected by Entrepreneur as one of the Top 50 Franchises for Minorities. Franchise Owners can expect a broad mix of proprietary insurance products, competitive pricing, unmatched brand awareness, and data-driven marketing that is laser-focused on the Hispanic market—and set to soar to new heights under new mega parent RPS/A.J. Gallagher.
The 2018 acquisition of Pronto by the global insurance broker opens up a world of unlimited opportunities for Pronto to authentically tap into the spending power of the Hispanic community.
With the backing of A.J. Gallagher, Pronto continues to evaluate new markets for expansion.
For Sanchez, the impact of ownership has been profound.
“Being able to provide jobs and watching my staff succeed and provide for their own families is very rewarding,” Sanchez says.
