Frequently Asked Questions
Pronto Insurance could be the answer you’ve been looking for.
WHO IS PRONTO INSURANCE?
Pronto Insurance was founded in 1997, in South Texas. Since our founding, Pronto has focused on providing our customers superior products at a low cost, while delivering fast and friendly service. By utilizing this philosophy, we were able to establish a strong presence in the Rio Grande Valley and began growing throughout Texas.
In 2005, we expanded on this growth by creating a Managing General Agency. This allowed us to facilitate our growth and provide better service to our customers. The following year, we added Income Tax services to our list of products. Pronto Franchise, LLC was established in 2009 to expand opportunities to Franchisees. In 2017, we expanded into California and currently have 200+ locations across Texas and California with more opening every month.
Pronto Insurance has been consistently recognized as a top franchise opportunity, with a low cost of entry, a proven system, comprehensive training, and ongoing support.

WHAT DIFFERENTIATES PRONTO INSURANCE FROM ITS COMPETITORS?
A Pronto Franchise offers a unique retail approach to insurance and financial products by offering high-quality, value-oriented products. Unlike some insurance franchises, Pronto issues its own underwriting guidelines and manages the entire claims process. Our offices are local, and support is never far away. Our underwriting process allows us to offer extremely competitive rates that our value-focused customers want, all while providing excellent service for our clients. Our locations offer convenient hours, and many Pronto locations offer drive-thrus, where customers have the ability to make payments without getting out of their vehicles. Pronto prides itself in providing fast and efficient service. “Pronto. It’s our name and our promise.”TM
Pronto has grown significantly since its inception by offering value-oriented products, aggressive marketing, brand awareness, and community involvement. Pronto has quickly become an industry leader and has been continually recognized as a top franchise for Hispanics and minorities, as seen in Poder Magazine and USA Today.

HOW MUCH MONEY CAN I MAKE?
This is an important question. The first step is to reference our FDD and understand that the potential of your agency depends on many factors. A Pronto Franchise earns a commission on every policy they sell and every payment they process.
Additionally, Franchise Owners are allowed to charge an agency fee, at their discretion, for each new policy sold. This creates your revenue stream. We also encourage you to contact existing Franchise Owners so you can talk numbers with those who are living them every day. What better way to get great data?
