Thousands of people consider careers in franchising, and there are thousands of franchises to choose from. So how do you select which one is the best fit for you? Luckily each franchise comes with its own infrastructure, industry, and record of success, all of which you should thoroughly investigate before signing on as a franchisee. A franchise’s business model is one of the most important aspects of starting a new franchise. It encompasses your transition into the franchise world, introduction to the ins and outs of the business, and your relationship to the industry itself. At American Family Care, we pride ourselves on having a premier urgent care business model, that makes it easy for franchisees to learn the business, get the help they seek, and really hit the ground running even if the industry is unfamiliar. Here’s what you can expect from AFC’s urgent care business model.
The Independence You’ve Always Wanted
Arguably the best part about franchising – and the reason many are attracted to the franchise process in the first place – is the flexibility it provides. We understand that and have baked this flexibility into our urgent care business model. Once your clinic is up and running, it’s important that our franchisees feel empowered to make important decisions for themselves, such as hiring and delegation. If you’re leaving a corporate environment where you felt restricted at every turn, our urgent care business model will be a refreshing change. Making sure your franchise responsibilities are being attended to is your first priority, but otherwise, you will have the ability to work whenever you want, create your own schedule, and make most decisions independently of any corporate overhead.
Support and Assistance
Independence might be one of the key pillars of our urgent care business model, but that doesn’t mean we send you adrift the moment you open your doors. With an American Family Care franchise, you will have access to comprehensive support before and after opening your clinics. This includes assistance with mastering the basics of business ownership, the ins and outs of the industry, help with hiring qualified care providers, marketing aid, and much more. Before you open your doors you will participate in formal classroom training sessions at our headquarters in Birmingham, Alabama, and after that, we’ll even join you at your location to make sure you’re effectively applying what you’ve learned. Many franchisees believe the most invaluable resource is our proprietary software, which handles everything from patient intake to payroll, making running your clinic simple.
Filling a Valuable Need
Our urgent care business model is based around the important idea that AFC is filling a much-needed hole in the health care industry. The heart of our business, and the mindset from which we operate, is that our emergency care franchises give patients an alternative to the congested, inefficient hospital emergency rooms. Many patients desperately need urgent care, but since they only have access to heavily trafficked emergency rooms, they are forced to wait in long lines, pay more money, and ultimately have a poor health care experience. Understanding our business model means understanding the immense need for an efficient, effective alternative to emergency rooms, and fulfilling our mission of providing real value to your community.
