Today, communities everywhere rely on American Family Care (AFC) to provide quality health care in place of emergency room visits, and we’re privileged to be there for them. These days especially, emergency rooms are not places where people want to be, which is why investing in a medical care franchise with AFC is a smart way to go into business for yourself. If you’re wondering what AFC urgent care clinic franchising costs look like, you should know they take into account just about everything you’ll need to get your clinic up and running and on the right foot.
Here, we’ll look at some of the initial and ongoing costs associated with an AFC investment —one of the top medical franchises out there — and what you can expect to get in return.
Our Franchise Fee
One of the unique strengths of the AFC brand is our highly-respected and trusted brand name. Right now, people are turning to us for quality health care in over 225 communities, and chances are many members of your community are already familiar with it.
You’ll be asked to pay a one-time initial franchise fee of $60,000 to do business under the AFC name, which will also grant you immediate access to all our proprietary materials, including our time-tested business model. Additionally, this fee covers the cost of your onboarding and the extensive pre-opening training you’ll enjoy that’ll prepare you to make the most of our robust industry. Your training includes a two+ day visit to our corporate headquarters in Birmingham, Alabama, where we’ll cover essential patient-first franchise topics like marketing, staff recruitment, best practices, and much more.
After Your Doors Open
After you open your clinic, you’ll be required to pay a 6% monthly royalty fee against your gross sales, which will offset the cost of essential resources and ongoing support we make available to all our franchisees. You can count on our in-depth research and development that our experts routinely conduct to keep you a leader in our industry, and can look forward to:
- Marketing materials and recommendations to help you reach your best customer.
- Access to a comprehensive private intranet site containing management, marketing, and operational resources available 24/7.
- Billing services provided by approved vendors that make insurance collections simple and straightforward.
- Opportunities for professional development, phone support, and on-site visits.
An additional 1% could be contributed toward our marketing fund to promote your location and the AFC brand which comes to a total of 7%. Depending on your location and the size of your center, in total, you can expect your initial investment to run somewhere between $1,008,000 and $1,441,500, which includes our initial franchise fee.
It’s vital that you have the financial stability needed to address the ups and downs of doing business — and you will have them, especially in the beginning, while you’re still trying to establish yourself. That’s why we ask all our franchise partners to demonstrate a net worth of at least $1,200,000, with $550,000 in liquid cash.
We firmly believe an AFC investment is one of the very best in our industry, one that continues to make a difference in communities across the country. More and more entrepreneurs see the value in it, and we look forward to continued brand growth!
