When you decide to open an urgent care franchise, you’re usually doing so because you want to take that next big step in your career, and give yourself the best chance of succeeding financially. The great thing about American Family Care franchises is the ability to not just own one unit, but as many as you want! We want our franchisees to feel like they can grow as much as possible within our franchise system, and this means giving them room to expand. It takes a unique, ambitious entrepreneur to undertake multi-unit ownership, but those who have been there before know it’s worth it.
The Multi-Unit Advantage
What exactly can you look forward to when you become a multi-unit owner? Well, you will be in charge of owning, operating, staffing, and overseeing training for multiple American Family Care franchise locations, while benefiting from a broader market for your services. Multi-unit franchise owners are able to benefit from multiple revenue streams, as well as streamlined business practices throughout each location. Each of your franchise locations will benefit from your ability to consolidate and share resources, as well as fluid marketing efforts between your locations.
Multi-unit ownership is a highly effective way of increasing your profitability and deepening your investment portfolio. However, in addition to the obvious monetary benefits, and giving you an advantage in the healthcare industry, owning multiple urgent care franchises can also make it easier to manage your resources and conduct marketing campaigns. Since you’re able to pool resources like funds, supplies, and manpower, it’s not like you’re starting from scratch with each new franchise. More units doesn’t have to mean more hassle. Feel free to streamline marketing campaigns across multiple franchises, including promotions, ads, and other marketing strategies. Also, being able to claim ownership of more than one urgent care franchise will set you apart in the healthcare industry, and really give you a tangible sense of career growth.
What Qualities Do I Need to Open an Urgent Care Franchise?
It takes a certain kind of entrepreneur to be a successful multi-unit owner. Multi-unit urgent care franchise owners should be prepared to deal with employees and patients of varying needs across a range of locations. You should be able to demonstrate compassion, transparency, and understanding, and be enthusiastic about giving back to the local community, regardless of how many franchises you own or where they’re located. It’s particularly important to be able to stay calm under pressure, and take an even-handed approach when handling both staff and patients.
While owning multiple franchises isn’t necessarily more difficult than owning one, the work required of you will certainly be different. Anyone considering multiple units should have a big picture mentality, be comfortable with delegating, have networking skills, maintain long-term perspective, and a high level of passion and patience. If this describes you, you might be well-positioned to succeed as a multiple franchise owner.
