What Our Insurance Branch Owners Are Saying

Insurance is a Multibillion-Dollar Industry

Insurance is a multi-billion dollar industry in the US. When you become a part of the Compass Insurance family , you are opening the door into this industry and can tap into the river of wealth it provides.

In the US, 79% of adults purchase auto insurance. It is a service the majority of the population needs. The stability that the insurance industry has allows you to plan for the long term and watch your business grow steadily.

Not only is insurance something everyone needs, but it’s also recession-proof. Since it’s a necessity, the stock market doesn’t impact the insurance industry in a negative way. Weather, unemployment, housing prices, and shipping rates have no effect. You can sleep well at night knowing there will always be customers.

In 2019, net premiums for the insurance industry totaled $1.32 trillion in the US. There is a huge amount of money spent on insurance annually. Being a part of a franchise-style business gets you in the front door. You get a leg up with expert advice and a tried and tested business formula to help you start making money from day one.

Low Startup Costs

Startup costs can be prohibitive with some franchises. Not with a Compass Insurance branch office. Begin your dream with as little capital as possible*, not hundreds of thousands like some franchises require. Whether you’re tired of playing by another agency’s rules or dream of owning your own business, our low risks, low costs, and high returns make it a no-brainer.
