NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. — Residents in New Port Richey, Port Richey, Wesley Chapel, Spring Hill and surrounding areas soon will enjoy a better way to shop for insurance when insuring their homes, cars and more. Husband and wife team and now Brightway Agency Owners, Jason and Erica Grubbs, will open the doors to Brightway, The Torres-Grubbs Agency in New Port Richey on Monday, May 21.

“Erica and I have lived in the area for 10 years and being in the projected path of Hurricane Irma last year sent a powerful reminder of why having the right insurance to cover your assets in the event of a disaster is vital to your financial future,” said Jason Grubbs. “We’re looking forward to opening our business together and offering our friends and neighbors expert counsel and more choice of insurance brands.”

Prior to joining Brightway, Jason Grubbs spent 13 years with Fifth Third Bank. Most recently, he served as Regional Vice President where he oversaw the bank's retail network in Northwest Hillsborough, North Pinellas and Pasco counties. Erica Torres-Grubbs is bilingual, speaking fluent English and Spanish. The Grubbs have been married 20 years and enjoy spending time with their three daughters. They are involved in their church, Generation Christian Church in Trinity, Fla, where they teach a weekly class to second and third grade students. They look forward to using their experience in financial services coupled with Brightway's system to provide a consultative approach that helps consumers protect their assets as Brightway Agency Owners.

“We’re thrilled to welcome Jason and Erica Grubbs to the Brightway family,” said Brightway President, Talman Howard. “Being a family-owned company started right here in the Sunshine State, we’ve grown into one of the country’s largest personal lines agencies by putting our Agency Owners’ and customers’ best interest at the forefront of everything we do. Our Win-Win-Win model means every decision we make must be a win for Agency Owners, a win for customers and a win for the company. ”
