What Are AFC’s Urgent Care Investment Costs and What Does It Get You?
As the owner of an American Family Care (AFC) urgent care center, you’ll be able to relieve the strain on your local emergency rooms by handling non-life-threatening conditions while at the same time providing affordable, accessible healthcare. By deciding to invest not only in your future as a business owner but in the health of your community as well, you get a much more meaningful return on your urgent care investment costs. Your suite of services will also be immediately accessible at convenient hours, making your AFC franchise your neighborhood’s go-to care provider.
Your Franchise Investment
The urgent care investment costs, or initial investment, associated with opening an AFC clinic include just about everything you’ll need to get your clinic going. This total investment is estimated to be between $1,008,000 and $1,441,500, depending on a number of factors, including the location of your franchise and whether it’s a single or multi-unit investment. This range includes the initial franchise fee of $60,000 as well as real estate costs and other essential expenses. Plus, AFC franchisees have real estate options; they can construct a clinic from the ground up or find an existing location to lease!
AFC also makes it simple if you already own an urgent care clinic but want to improve your bottom line. We offer the option of converting an existing facility to an American Family Care franchise – dropping the total initial investment range significantly, including the franchise fee of $45,000.
Remember, when it comes to franchising, you’re making an investment – not just throwing money into the wind. We’re part of a robust industry that is growing at a consistent rate and generating $27.8 billion annually, so when you decide to invest in an AFC clinic of your own, you’re set up for success from the very beginning.

Urgent Care Is Convenient Care
When you invest in an AFC franchise, your local patients become familiar with the broad range of medical issues our urgent care can address, making our centers the clear choice for their healthcare services. Each of our centers is staffed by experienced physicians and equipped with the latest technology, so we’re a great choice for young patients suffering from colds or allergies, as well as older patients with slip-and-fall injuries. Some centers even have an on-site pharmacy, making it easier than ever for patients to access the medication they need.
For the convenience of our patients, our AFC locations are open seven days a week, 365 days a year. We open early, close late, are available on weekends, and always go the extra mile to be readily available for our patients and their healthcare needs. Frustration over the inefficient wait times and impersonal care experienced at hospital emergency room visits for much-needed urgent care is not only why communities have made us their number one choice for their healthcare solutions, but also why we’ve made urgent care one of the fastest-growing segments of the healthcare industry! When you invest with AFC, you become part of this industry.
