At American Family Care (AFC), we know that when someone is thinking about investing in a franchise business, they probably have a lot of questions about the brands they’re interested in, especially if they’re interested in an urgent care franchise opportunity. An AFC franchise opportunity is a wonderful way to make a living and become a valuable member of your business community, and we think that it’s well worth exploring. Let’s take a look at a few commonly asked questions about our offering.
Do I need prior industry experience?
You might think that in order to take advantage of an AFC franchise opportunity you’ll need to have experience in the health fields. Well the good news is, you don’t! While those skills might be useful, the fact is, we look for investors with business management and sales skills, too. Furthermore, our business model is time-tested, laying out the processes and procedures necessary to operate smoothly, taking a lot of the guesswork out of running your center. And if that weren’t enough, we offer comprehensive training and support to all our franchisees, so they’re fully-prepared to do business and add value to their communities right from the start.
What kind of training will I receive?
Your training begins with a comprehensive pre-opening process that includes spending two-and-a-half-days at our corporate office in Birmingham, Alabama, where we’ll go over the basics of day-to-day operations of your urgent care center. You’ll also be trained in our time-tested methodology, and will delve deeply into the AFC culture. Once you open your center, you’ll be visited by one of our experts to make sure you’re correctly applying everything you’ve learned to take full advantage of our urgent care franchise opportunity. Furthermore, you can count on a dedicated Franchise Business Consultant to be there for you, every step of the way.
What about ongoing support?
Support of our franchisees once they’ve opened their center doors is robust and comprehensive. Just take a look at some of the resources and features that make up our support network:
- A third-party, customized EMR software system, which helps manage many aspects of your business, including patient intake, scheduling, and integrated payroll processing
- Billing services provided by approved vendors that will make insurance collections simple and straightforward
- A detailed operations manual with recommended recruiting, hiring, and staffing procedures that will help you run your business smoothly and profitably
- A cache of marketing materials for a variety of outlets that will help you fully develop your territory and reach your best customer
These are just some of the ways we go the distance to ensure our franchisees see the kind of support necessary to meet the challenges and enjoy the rewards of an AFC franchise opportunity.
How much money can I make?
Of course, making a living — preferably a good one — is always the objective of any franchise investment. Our industry is a robust one, with plenty of room for investors in an urgent care franchise opportunity to prosper. But while earnings are a function of the industry and economy in general, they’re also determined by just how quickly and efficiently you wish to grow your business.
