You might tend to think that because we’re an urgent care franchise investment, you need experience in the healthcare industry to make the most of it. Essentially, nothing could be further from the truth. The American Family Care (AFC) primary care franchise opportunity is one that just about anyone can invest in, thanks to our comprehensive training and support. Still, while we generally don’t have specific requirements to open an occupational care clinic with us (other than some financial considerations), we do look for potential franchisees who exhibit a few characteristics that we know will be useful to them as they grow their urgent care business. Here, we’ll look at three of them.
You Have a Desire to Make a Difference
It’s pretty safe to say that most if not all our franchisees began their urgent care centers with us in part because they wanted to live a rewarding and purpose-driven life, one that allows them to be there in a meaningful way for members of their community. If this sounds like something you strive for, too, then an AFC primary care franchise might be your way to realize that goal. We’ve been helping people stay healthy since 1982 through a comprehensive suite of services that meet a host of needs. Going to work every day knowing you’re making a difference in the lives of neighbors and friends is just one of the significant benefits of becoming part of the AFC brand family.
You Have Some Experience in Management
If you’re interested in owning and operating a business, having some sales and/or management experience can be quite helpful. Many of our current franchisees came to us as private urgent care practitioners, and as a result, have a background in managing a team of people. If you currently work as a private practitioner and are wondering how to franchise a medical practice, we have answers! We’ll help you take your experience in the healthcare industry and apply it to our time-tested business model, allowing you to maximize your business’ potential and help you grow your bottom line. Even if you don’t have experience in management per se, our systems will guide you through the day-to-day operations of your clinic and keep you on track toward success.
You Appreciate Groundwork
One of the distinct advantages of the franchise model is that as a franchisee, you’re in business for yourself but not by yourself. You’ll have the freedom to hire who you want and work the hours you’d like, but also enjoy the benefits that come from a business model that lays the groundwork and takes a lot of the guesswork out of running your primary care franchise. It’s important that you follow our business model because in addition to helping you manage your center, it also reiterates the AFC culture; and keeps our brand consistent across all outlets. That, in turn, is what allows us to be a leader in our industry.
