Since 1982, American Family Care (AFC) has been a leader in the healthcare sphere, and today with over 249 clinics across 27 states, AFC is the nation’s premier urgent care center franchise. We saw unprecedented growth and recognition during a challenging year, and we’re incredibly proud of the difference we make in all the communities we serve. Here, we’ll briefly look at some 2021 brand highlights, as well as some projections for 2022.
We Saw Tremendous Growth in 2021
It was a busy year for our franchise brand. Our urgent care center was welcomed by dozens of new cities and towns across the country, with 54 new franchise locations opening before the end of the year. This represents more than just growth; what it speaks to is our commitment to the health and well-being of the communities we serve. From physicals to X-rays to vaccines and much more, each AFC urgent care center is equipped to deliver quality healthcare at a time when it’s most needed. We’re helping individuals and families, young and old, stay healthy, and we couldn’t be more grateful for that responsibility.
We Were Recognized by Prestigious Publications
The world of franchising is an exciting and competitive one, and anytime a brand is recognized by peers or publications, it’s something to be proud of — and we certainly are that! The last year saw us singled out by numerous prestigious outlets:
- AFC was placed as one of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies on the prestigious “Inc. 5000” list, jumping over 1,000 spots in one year!
- We ranked #1 in our industry category on Entrepreneur magazine’s“2021 Best of the Best” franchises list.
- AFC ranked #82 in Entrepreneur’s “2021 Franchise 500”, the world’s most admired and respected franchise ranking.
We are a premier franchise offering in the urgent care sector, one that investors gravitate to because they know our time-tested business model and corporate support is built into it. Our commitment to our franchisees is a hallmark of the AFC brand, and we’re consistently recognized for that.
2022 Is Shaping Up to Be a Busy Year!
We have a lot to look forward to in the months ahead, not the least of which is our 40th anniversary as a brand in May of 2022. On top of that, we have over 50 franchise locations in the pipeline to open at the end of the year, our 300th location is expected to open in the spring, and we’re on pace to open our 500th urgent care clinic in 2025! That’s a lot to be excited about!
