JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Jan. 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- For the third year in a row, Brightway Insurance, the nation's seventh largest privately held Personal Lines insurance agency, has been named to Entrepreneur magazine's 2016 Franchise 500 list, which, according to the publisher, is "the first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking in the world."
The distinction is made using information including financial strength and stability, growth rate and size of the system.
And, Brightway has been named to Franchise Gator's list of the 50 Fastest Growing Franchises in the country.
