This week, the company announced it would remove the insurance experience requirement to its lower-cost, Office Agent franchise model. For people who want to open their own business, this means you can become a franchise owner in Brightway's recession-proof system that offers residual income and in which you can operate out of a professional office space; this significantly reduces your up-front and operating costs.
"We introduced the Office Agent model last year as a flexible, lower-cost option for people with insurance sales experience who wanted to become business owners with the recognition and support of the Brightway brand," said Brightway President and CEO, Michael Miller. "Understanding that the COVID-19 pandemic has many people rethinking their careers and futures, we wanted to remove barriers from entering into the lower-cost model we offer so that more people can realize their dreams of business ownership with Brightway."
Miller added, "We're confident in the success of our model and the holistic business support we offer. In fact, our two largest locations are owned and operated by people who came to Brightway with no insurance background."
The announcement comes just a month after the company announced new flexibility to its franchise contract to make it easier than ever to get started with franchise ownership in a safe, stay-at-home environment. Providing such flexibility for new franchisees will reduce initial expenses involved with leasing office space and build out costs.
