How Do I Get Started? What Are the AFC Franchise Fees? Answers to These and Other Common Questions About Our Offering
We know taking advantage of an AFC franchise opportunity is an exciting and rewarding process that not only allows franchisees to become part of a robust industry but provides communities across the country with top-notch healthcare options.
But as with any investment, you’re bound to have questions, like what are the AFC franchise fees? What kind of experience do I need?
Here, we’ll answer four of the more common inquiries we get about our opportunity.
1. How Do I Become Part of the AFC Brand Family?
Joining the AFC brand is a transparent and straightforward process that begins right here on our website. Fill out a brief form with some basic information about yourself, and someone from our franchise team will get back to you promptly.
You’ll have a chance to tell us a little more about yourself and your background and goals, and if we feel like there’s a good fit, we’ll move on to the next steps, which include receiving a copy of our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) and enjoying a Discovery Day.
2. What Are the Ongoing Fees?
All franchisors require franchisees to pay monthly royalties, and AFC franchisees pay 6% of their gross revenue. This fee funds our continued research and development and our ongoing support, among other efforts.
Additionally, our medical clinic franchise costs include spending at least $2,000 per month on advertising in your local market after your grand opening. You’ll also be required to pay 1% a month toward a general marketing fund that supports marketing activities and resources that benefit all AFC franchise locations nationally. To see a complete listing of our ongoing fees, request a copy of our FDD.
3. Do I Need Industry Experience?
While it helps to come to our opportunity with healthcare industry experience, it is in no way necessary. That’s because we make sure all our new franchisees enjoy comprehensive preopening training that goes over every operational aspect of running their clinics.
From utilizing technology to hiring qualified staff to marketing your clinic, we cover it all and are always available to answer questions or address concerns. With us by your side, you’re in business for yourself, never by yourself.
