    Meet some of our current Franchise Owners:


    Securing optimal life insurance policies is crucial to assure financial security for families who have suffered a loss. With projections that over 38% of men and women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime, franchising a TFA is highly recommended if you’re passionate about providing these critical services to members of your community. Moreover, the life insurance and annuities industry in the U.S. garners a combined revenue of $855 billion. About $70 trillion of wealth is projected to switch hands over the next 25 years, providing ample opportunity for you as a franchisee to provide TFA services to people who seek them.


    Entrepreneurs have two franchise opportunities to choose from: a home-based model or a brick and mortar model, with two franchise development available. The first is the opportunity to own a single unit franchise which allows you to operate your own TFA in a protected territory of your choice. The second option is our Area Development Franchise, offering you the opportunity to lock down a larger territory and build a series of TFA locations/territories at your own pace. Both deals are economically priced to maximize your opportunity to become a business owner, and our potential to become a nationally recognized brand. 


    Potential franchisees are recommended to have experience as insurance brokers or financial specialists. For those that don’t, the franchise investment includes a thorough training program that includes 38 hours of classroom training. Upon completion, franchisees will have a deeper understanding of the financial services we provide, how to staff your team, handle administrative duties, and market your location to drive in more business. Our franchise support team will also provide ample guidance throughout your franchise development and ongoing operations.
