These days, people are paying closer attention to their health and doing what they can to take care of it while avoiding crowded emergency rooms — and with good reason. Who wants to be in one if they don’t have to? That’s why investing in a medical care franchise with American Family Care (AFC) is a prudent way to go into business for yourself but not by yourself. Communities everywhere are relying on our AFC centers to provide quality health care in place of emergency room visits, and when you partner with us to open one in your city or town, you can count on our support. But what is the cost of opening an urgent care clinic with AFC? Here, we’ll take a look at what our investment opportunity looks like and some of the benefits it gets you.
A One-Time Franchise Fee
All franchise brands charge a one-time franchise fee that grants you the right to do business under the brand name, and as part of the cost of opening an urgent care clinic with AFC, it’s a requirement you pay a one-time fee of $60,000. In addition to giving you the right to do business as an AFC franchisee, this sum also grants you access to all our proprietary materials, including our time-tested business model. It will also cover the cost of your onboarding and the extensive pre-opening training you’ll enjoy that will prepare you to make the most of our robust industry.
After your center doors open, we’ll require you to pay a 6% monthly royalty fee against your gross sales, which will offset the cost of the ongoing support we’re proud to show all our franchisees. In total, you can expect your initial investment to run anywhere between $883,500 and $1,362,000, depending on your location and the size of your center.
Additionally, because we know how important it is to have the kind of financial stability that will allow you to weather the rewards and challenges of doing business while you’re still trying to establish your customer base, we ask all our franchise partners to demonstrate a net worth of at least $1,200,000 and $550,000 in liquid cash.
We’re There for You Every Step of the Way
From the moment you sign your franchise agreement and pay your one-time franchise fee, you’ll enjoy comprehensive pre-opening training that answers all your questions and fully prepares you to successfully manage the day-to-day operations of your new AFC medical care franchise. Your training includes a two+ day visit to our corporate headquarters in Birmingham, Alabama, where we’ll cover essential topics like marketing, hiring staff, and best practices, and more. You’ll also enjoy ongoing resources that include:
- Marketing materials, like brochures, pre-approved ads, artwork for direct mail, radio scripts, and recommendations to help you fully develop your territory.
