Who Typically Invests in Urgent Care Centers?
Our franchisees come from all walks of life, but many of them fit into one of these categories.
Executives who need a change of pace
These franchisees found success in the corporate world and were ready to put their skills to work for themselves by opening an urgent care center.
Professional investors see great potential in the AFC business model, and we welcome them to partner with us!
If you’re a physician busy working at your own practice or within a hospital system, investing in an urgent care center is a great way to invest in yourself. Physicians can opt to practice in their own clinics some of the time – whatever works for their schedule.
